• 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.

    Dublin has been home to many venues over the past 30 years. When I started going to and playing at gigs our venues were the Baggott Inn, Ivy Rooms and the legendary McGonagles for the slightly bigger affairs. It was a great sized room, 700 capacity and when it was packed it was. Real hot.

    Not all the bands above played to a packed hall, some were cold but it was always buzzing. A great venue, for sure.
