• 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 #75 – Slow Drag

    It is a show about slowing down songs and going with that sound.  Doctor Groove got this idea into his head, to play a few songs that are famous for being slowed down, or dragged. We are talking about DJ Screws version of the Phil Collins classic. Then off to Nigeria with Fela Kuti, and end up back in the Virginian mountains with Dolly slowed down pleading with Jolene to leave her man alone.

    Finally we speed up at the end and get all electric.  The first song is for the workers in the Paris Bakery who are fighting to get paid from their bosses the wages that they are owed.  Justice is something that obviously has to be fought for in 21st century Ireland.  Give them your support.
