Intertribal ended its 17 year run on July 9, 2022. Encore airings of classic episodes can be heard every Saturday from 6-9am.

InterTribal – a show dedicated to the Original Voices of the Americas. The show features the Native American Artist, News and Issues, and well, whatever else comes my way. You never really know what you are going to get when you tune in. Mostly music, Traditional to Contemporary, InterTribal is heard on WRIR 97.3 lpfm and www.wrir.org

A rare find, InterTribal has been on air for over a decade with a strong listener base; listeners are tuning in more and more, while the Native Artists are finding InterTribal to be a new outlet for their music.

Tall Feathers is of Euro-Native American descent; InterTribal’s mission is to share the music and the artists with the world in the hopes of bringing awareness to issues. While Tall Feathers’ shares the beauty of the music, she believes crossing the cultural boundaries through music is a beautiful way to enlighten, and hopefully eliminate the prejudices that continue to exist.

Activate! is a concert calendar for your ears. Do you want to go to a show? Every week, I preview the next 7 days on Richmond’s live music calendar. Every band you hear on Activate! is playing in the River City sometime that week and you’ll get info as to when and where the show is happening.

The Richmond music scene is one of the best in the world. In order for it to maintain and grow, we need people like you to go to live shows. That includes supporting both local and touring bands. Every night of the week, you can catch a spectrum of live bands playing music that you want to hear. But, it’s not easy for musicians OR venues. So, tune in to Activate! every Thursday from 5 to 7pm, hear a band that sparks your interest, and go to the show!

The Commonwealth of Notions is a reaction to the idea that good music is dead in the city of Richmond. While being a careful observer and participant in the music scene, I find myself constantly amazed by the creative energies put on display. Whether they are the songs played within the walls of living rooms, basements or bars, they should all be heard.

Along with my initial motives of showcasing the local Richmond scene, the playlists act as a showcase of my love for music. If I spend the following week with a song stuck in my head, why wouldn’t I play it on the air? Perhaps that is what makes the show stand out in many regards. It isn’t limited to just being a show about Richmond local music. The Commonwealth of Notions acts as a showcase of myself and hopefully the songs I play will help establish and create conversations that wouldn’t happen otherwise.

At its core, the Commonwealth of Notions is my love letter to the great musical entities that have come and gone in Richmond and a way for me to never lose sight of it’s pulse.


Servus und Willkommen zu unseren Deutscher Jam!

Hey everyone and welcome to our Deutscher Jam. This show should serve as a connecting ground to showcase and play current and classic German Artists here in Richmond. We are going to be pulling away from the stereotypes and stigmas one may think when picturing modern day Germany through sound and music. The shows mission is to pull individuals away from viewing Germans as the stereotypical picture of solely drinking beer, eating sausage, wearing lederhosen, and the population only consisting of one race. Hip-Hop has created a platform for Germans to ignite change and rebrand the face of their society. This current generation of Hip-Hop artists are reshaping everything about what being “Made in Germany” means and how they are actively embracing the language. Germany has reshaped themselves into not only a fierce competitor politically and economically but now also in the music industry. Germans have taken a genre that had been introduced to them from across the Atlantic over 30 years ago, translated and interpreted it into their own version and have created a blend that has reshaped the music industry into possible pursuit of a global takeover. Viel Spaß und enjoy this insider listen into what Germany really has to offer!
