RIP Stuart McLean, Canada's Storyteller

I feel like I've lost a friend. Stuart McLean, the host of CBC Radio's The Vinyl Cafe and an award-winning humorist, has died at age 68 after a battle with melanoma. The storyteller was an icon of Canadian radio whose folksy, familiar delivery made him a hit with audiences for more than 20 years. I know I'm not the only Canadian who shed a tear last night when I heard the news.

He was an amazing storyteller. I can't think of anyone better, anywhere.

We're all going to miss him dearly.
