• Radioactive International is a collective of like-minded people who are passionate about their music, art and politics. We are a free-form radio station with no set formats, playlists or genres. We have nearly 40 DJs playing a varied mixture of alternative music from punk, metal, ska, reggae and historical recordings. Our main rule? No fascists, racists, sexists, homophobes or religious presenters. We broadcast online, but also transmit live from gigs and festivals. Expect to hear about lefty music, politics and art. A motto of the station is that we’re not here to break the law with an illegal radio station just to play bland pop music available on many of the state and corporate stations.

    5 Class Raven Pieces

    I have always tried to mark the passing of artists on my radio shows to celebrate that which lives on and that which stands as their artistic legacy.  This week we sadly mark the sudden passing of someone who I will remember as a friend and a fellow artist even if we circulated in different artistic circles.

    Raven was a spoken word artist and a poet (among many, many other things)  who left an indelible mark on Dublin.  He was a source of inspiration for so many of those who met him, saw him perform or performed with him.  Ireland will be a much less colourful place without him.

    So this week’s show is very different.  Its 5 Class Raven Pieces, 5 of his spoken word performances. 5 tracks bursting with brilliance and energy.
