Stuart McLean Talks Mid-Life Crises, Feeling Like A Rockstar, And Hearing Impressions Of Himself

Stuart McLean, host of CBC Radio's 'The Vinyl Cafe', was in the red chair yesterday. But we couldn't fit the whole conversation into the broadcast - here's a little more.

Check out Stuart's answers to a few rapid-fire questions from George, covering everything from rock stardom to awkward fan impressions.
