We’ll also explore the Lunar Eclipse occurring alongside the Full Moon, aka the Snow Moon (also Hunger Moon and Bone Moon) and the crises it inspires, although that doesn’t always have to have a negative connotation.

CommonThreadFatima M. Smith is a community advocate with ties to various organizations.  You’ll get to know her as the host of WRIR’s newest program, Common Thread, airing third and fourth Thursdays at Noon. Common Thread joins WRIR-produced programs such as The V Word, Inspire Indeed and Diversity Speaks! that are hosted by community advocates and produced by our volunteers. Their programs are part of WRIR’s mission to air underrepresented news, views and music to build cultural diversity in the city of Richmond. Fatima answered questions submitted to her via email about her show and taking on her new role as “WRIR Talk Show Host.”

How does your show fulfill the mission of WRIR? Often time we speak about issues as if they are one dimensional or one size fits all. Audre Lorde said it best, “There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” It is important to gather folks that represent various socioeconomic status, education levels, ethnicities, sexual orientation, genders, political views, among other identities and get them in a space where they are having a dialogue with one another rather than a monologue. Once dialogue is started, that is where the seed of change is planted. The show’s focus is having discussions that reflect community issues with voices of the community utilizing an intersectional lens.

What do you hope the listener will gain from hearing your show? My hope is that listeners take away something that was either new or adds to what they already know in order to be change agents in the community. Change and progress can be on an individual level, community level, or societal level. Just make it happen!

How did you hear about WRIR? Carol Olson invited me on her show to speak about the work I was doing through my former place of employment, YWCA of Richmond. I really enjoyed radio as a means of advocacy and activist work.

Why did you decide to volunteer with WRIR? I enjoyed my experiences with Carol and saw it as an opportunity to learn and grow and be a part of a great Richmond community tradition.

What advice would you give someone who is interested in volunteering at WRIR? It is possible. The team is supportive and you do not have to have experience, although it may be helpful.

Common Threads airs the third and fourth Thursdays of every month at noon. The show is produced with the help of WRIR volunteer Cameron Robinson and members of the station’s production team. If you are interested in learning more about hosting a show on WRIR or being a show producer, email [email protected]

Common Thread reflects the views and opinions of Fatima Smith and is not affiliated with any professional or academic organizations.

Election Night Open Source RVAIt takes a village to bring you community-first election coverage! Open Source RVA’s Election Night spectacular on WRIR 97.3 FM featured a team of enthusiastic WRIR volunteers and perceptive special guests to bring you local election news, breaking vote totals and candidate interviews. For five hours, in between masterful sets of music from Will Armstrong (12 Fl. Oz). Otto Konrad (Over the Edge of the Pop Narcotic) and Tommy Atrien (Dog Germs), our Nov. 8 live coverage featured in-studio commentary and numbers-crunching from Open Source RVA’s own Don Harrison, Chris Dovi, Krysti Albus and Dale Brumfield, along with Melissa Vaughn from RVA Dirt. Former mayoral hopefuls Jon Baliles and Farid Alan Schintzius gave their perspectives, too.

Throughout the evening, the Election Night News Team talked to candidates Kim Gray (who won the 2nd District city council seat) and Sheriff Mike Wade (who lost his bid for the 4th Congressional District seat), as well as local political strategist Paul Goldman. We are proud to say that WRIR 97.3 FM was the first media outlet in Richmond to call the race for newly elected mayor Levar Stoney! That is really amazing, considering the resources and pundits the local, commercial radio stations were using for their election night coverage. It was a memorable evening for local AND national politics.

Thank you for allowing WRIR 97.3 FM to be your prime source for information and perspective on Election 2016. We encourage you to see how you can be a part of WRIR 97.3 FM. We need and want diverse voices on air. If you have an idea for a talk show or love a particular style of music, share your idea by filling out a volunteer application. It could lead to an incredible opportunity.
