Dad’s Journey & The Vinyl Cafe

This is a letter I wrote to Stuart McLean.  Ya, THEE Stuart McLean of the Vinyl Cafe.  That was back in November when we were in Corsica.  I was more than delighted when my new friend replied saying he’d like to use it on the show.  Remember, The VC audience in Canada and the USA is over 2M people.  Dad would get the accolades he deserved after all those lonely, gruelling  months on the road.  Stuart has worked his magic with the letter and recorded it recently in Chilliwack with Dad, family, friends and fellow cyclists in the crowd.  I’m told Dad received a long and hearty standing ovation when (my new BFF) Stuart invited him onto the stage.  The story will be broadcast this weekend on CBC with the “Story Exchange”.
