Stuart McLean dead at 68

Stuart McLean, the host of CBC Radio's The Vinyl Café and an award-winning humorist, has died at age 68 after a battle with melanoma, the CBC web page reports.
"McLean's trademark blend of storytelling — part nostalgia, part pithy observations about everyday life and folksy, familiar delivery — made him a hit with the audience for more than 20 years. But he always maintained that success came as a surprise to him," the brief announcement said.
