Love Your Radio! Win a Trip to London, England!

Please share your love of radio and the arts by making a donation to in support of The More the Merrier (TmTm) during CIUT 89.5 FM's Spring Fundraising Campaign (April 11-17). Donate now via credit card or PayPal at www.ciut.fm or call 416-946-7800, toll free 1-888-946-7800. If you choose the PayPal method, the station will send you an email asking you what show you want to support. Please tell them The More the Merrier. Thank you for continuing the legacy of listener-supported radio!

My love of the arts inspired me to create a show where no one would feel intimidated or left out listening to discussions about various aspects of the arts; hence the name, The More the Merrier. TmTm has a heavy film slant because you, the listener, told me that you loved hearing me talk about film (and the many film festivals Toronto hosts) with my guests. As a past drama student, I have to include theatre coverage on TmTm. I like to mix it up with performances on the small stages as well as the more commercial stages. I even throw in some additional flavour with Théâtre français de Toronto plays (they have English surtitles for some of their performances). Book and music lovers are not forgotten either in my programme planning. Author readings, discussions about why to keep reading poetry post-high school, and call in shows about what you are reading are all scheduled with you in mind. The music I play is heavy on the Canadian side, but CanCon doesn't mean a lack of diversity. From urban flautist, Jef Kearns to a variety of African and Latin artists, and yes, even the classics as performed by Lutenist, John Edwards and Soprano, Hallie Fishel of Musicians In Ordinary, are all part of The More the Merrier's mix.
