• 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.

    GOTW Plague Tapes #6

    Another day of the plague, another plague tapes.  We read from F. Scott’s letter when he was in quarantine, back in 1918 for the Spanish Flu, we also hear from ye olde Samuel Pep’s and his talk of the pox and taverns.

    We have a serious quant, med, science chat with Andrew at the end, and we have, of course good music throughout.
