history of atr
All Tribes Radio was founded in 2008. For over two years, the station broadcast an audio stream 24/7 on the internet featuring Creative Commons music to an average 6,000 listeners per month in over 120 countries on all continents.
With studios in Nosara, Costa Rica, Canada, and the U.S., ATR's signal was transmitted via an internet server in Tampa, Florida. Streaming was discontinued in 2011 in favour of podcasting. A total of 68 one-hour podcasts were subsequently produced for iTunes and completed in 2012.
ATR returned to the airwaves in December 2020, this time on Shortwave Radio, promoting peace, social justice, and environmental responsibility around the globe. A weekly one-hour show featuring Creative Commons music is produced in English, Spanish, German, French, and Italian and broadcast from both WRMI in Okeechobee, Florida and Channel 292 in Rohrbach, Germany.
