Shameless Plea time again

Hi Folks,

It’s that fund-raising time again for CIUT fm. From November 14-20, 2022.

This is my shameless plea to donate to keep the only independent radio station going and to give you radio that covers the arts, unlike any other outlet. The mainstream media has drastically cut down its arts coverage, not CIUT FM.

There are four mainstream daily newspapers that covered theatre regularly. Now there is only one.

On my show, CRITICS CIRCLE  on Saturday mornings 9 am to 10 am (formerly CIUT FRIDAY MORNING,) 89.5 fm we do theatre and film reviews every week, plus interviews. I review theatre around the city and the province. I have supported and championed the marginalized voices through their plays for decades.  For me, theatre is vital in reflecting the world we live in. 

CIUT 89.5 fm gives voice to those who need to be heard.  Our shows are all volunteer. Please go to and donate—noting CRITICS CIRCLE– so we can continue to provide needed arts coverage.

Added Bonus: The wonderful Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company at the Meridian Centre in North York is offering TWO tickets to the opening night, Nov. 17, to OLD STOCK: A Refugee Love Story, to the first person who donates $250, noting CRITICS CIRCLE in our fundraising. The show is wonderful. Please donate. Thanks.

Hi Lynn,
A note that the Toronto Star regularly covers theatre and other performing arts.

Hi Karen
True, the Toronto Star does cover theatre and other performing arts, but not as regularly or eclectically as I stand by this quote about our arts coverage: “unlike any other outlet. The mainstream media has drastically cut down its arts coverage, not CIUT FM.” Always good to hear from you. Best, Lynn
