The Lovecast with Dave O Rama

The Lovecast with Dave O Rama is a broad spectrum music exploration program airing on CIUT 89.5 FM Toronto and other syndicates

Dave O Rama is a journalist, broadcaster, live music programmer, DJ, MC, media curator, who self identifies as schizophonic. Born and raised in Toronto Canada, David Owen Rama has been involved in alternative radio broadcasting coming on to four decades now. Dave moved to the west coast of Canada in the summer of 1993 and then out further into the Salish Sea area in 1996 where he took up residence in a small rural community on the Gulf Island of Gabriola. The Lovecast is a two-hour music exploration program that strives to appeal to listeners with broad spectrum musical minds. The show first broadcast live on CHLY FM in November 2002 and remained one of the station’s most popular programs for almost two decades. Originally airing Saturdays from 4PM to 7PM Pacific and broadcasting to southern Vancouver Island and the south coast of British Columbia, The Lovecast ran in that time slot until it celebrated its 16th anniversary on air. Originally a three-hour program navigating a mind blowing selection of sounds spanning time and style and featuring interviews with an exciting range of local, national, and international musical talent, as of March 2019 The Lovecast now makes its new terrestrial radio home on the familiar and wide ranging transmissions of the mighty CIUT FM, Toronto. A veteran host and music programmer with CIUT FM, Dave O Rama was part of a dedicated group of Toronto community radio producers who worked passionately to establish the high powered campus based community station with audiences and communities in Southern Ontario. Joining CIUT FM on January 15 1987, the day the station went to air, Dave O Rama has remained associated with the highly respected media facility for the past 32 years. Airing Friday mornings 12am to 2am broadcasting from Toronto to southern Ontario on 89.5 FM, Dave O Rama takes you on a journey through his schizophonic ears. From roots and blues to electronic moods, from orchestral to free form, dub stylistics, Latin soul psychedelics, global grooves, Afrocentric moves, and whatever other sonic delectables he digs up to stir into the pot. The Lovecast is also syndicated on bluesandrootsradio.com, UbuntuFM, and CJMP FM.
