Penguin, 1996 - Radio broadcasters - 256 pages
For years, Canadians across the country waited with eager anticipation for Stuart McLean's Monday morning appearances on CBC-Radio's Morningside. Funny and charming, poignant and nostalgic, McLean's essays illuminate a world most of us take for granted.

Among Stuart's favourites in this collection are:
- the shocking truth about household dust
- the importance of hardware stores
- the sad, true tale of Anne, the street lady
- an ode to the Popsicle, "one of the world's most perfect foods"
- the story of the greatest game of Monopoly ever played.
