POPULAR CBC SHOW: Stuart McLean & The Vinyl Cafe (Sony Centre $48 / $60)













Join us for an entertaining afternoon of story-telling and music by Stuart McLean and The Vinyl Cafe at the Sony Centre in downtown Toronto.

The Vinyl Cafe is Belinda's favourite CBC Radio show! It will be performed live at as part of the show's 2012 Christmas tour.



Stuart McLean is one of Canada's most beloved storytellers and a best-selling author. His hit CBC radio show The Vinyl Cafe premiered in 1994, and each week over 1 million listeners tune in to hear stories about Dave, owner of the second hand record store where the motto is: “We May Not Be Big, But We're Small".

The stories also feature Dave's wife, Morley, their two children, Sam and Stephanie, and assorted friends and neighbours.

The show also features live and recorded music by both up-and-coming and established Canadian musicians. Increasingly, it is becoming a place where Canadians go to find new, undiscovered talent. MORE INFORMATION

    Thanks so much Belinda for posting this event. It was thoroughly entertaining - the musical talent was fantastic, introducing us to some home-grown hidden gems, and the story-telling was heart-warming. It was also just what we needed to put us in the Christmas spirit. Stuart McLean's brilliance can be attested by the fact that he convinced both you and I to sing along in the grand finale - a rare moment was achieved. I'd definitely be up for making this an annual event.
