• We are a collective of like minded people who are passionate about their music, art and politics, sometimes we like to mash it all up and sometimes keep it separate. We are a free form radio station with no formats or playlists or genres that DJs have to adhere to. We have few rules, but the main rule is no fascists, racists, sexists, homophobes or religious presenters. The music and politics and art is mainly leftist and alternative and a motto of the station is we’re not here to break the law with an illegal radio station just to play bland pop music, that is available on many of the state and corporate stations. Radioactive International has nearly 40 DJ’s playing a varied mixture of alternative music from punk, metal, ska, reggae and historical recordings. We broadcast online but also transmit live from gigs and festivals.
