• 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.

    Groove On The Wireless 239 – Songs for Alan

    Yesterday I buried a friend, an inspirational man who I was lucky enough to call a friend.  Crucially he was not only a class warrior, but he was an organiser and and a proud anarchist, so his dream for a new world lives on.  Like Joe Hill he will never die, because  that vision cannot be killed, we will carry on in the struggle to make that world anew, because neither us nor the planet deserve anything less.

    Alan Mac Simóin May he Riot in Peace
