I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
Mike McCardell joins me now. The Global BC reporter has been providing viewers with those heart warming, thoughtful and often remarkable pieces that end the highly rated six o’clock News Hour broadcast for nearly three decades. Thanks to his perceptive eye for the human condition and considerate sense of humour, we have a third collection of wonderfully crafted stories bound in The Blue Flames that Keep Us Warm. A delightful follow up to the bestselling Chasing the Story God and Back Alley Reporter, McCardell doesn’t fail to warm our hearts and lift our spirits. From Harbour Publishing, The Blue Flames that Keep Us Warm retails for $32.95. Partial proceeds will be donated to Variety-The Children’s Charity. The previous two books raised over $25,000 for Variety in 2001 and 2002. I am very pleased to welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Mike McCardell. Good morning, Mr. McCardell.
