From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of stories written by Stuart McLean featuring his popular fictional characters "Dave and Morley" from the radio program The Vinyl Cafe. First read on air in 1994, many of the stories were eventually compiled in book form, followed by audio recordings compilations from the program.

Note that this list features only the stories that have been published in book form and on audio. Numerous other stories have been written and read out loud on the radio show, but are not currently categorized. Additionally, several stories also feature alternate titles from those in the book than those on the audio versions.

The first collection of stories in book form, Stories from the Vinyl Cafe, features several stories that did not feature Dave and Morley, or any other characters acquainted with them. Subsequent collections of stories featured Dave and Morley-related content exclusively.
