• 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.

    It is with some sadness that I do this show. The world lost many of its people this week but two in particular stuck a chord with me. Bob crowe and Tony Benn. Two people who believed that the world could be made into a better place and that the 1% who own the wealth could be moved.

    As a 16 year old in 1984 I was hugely influenced by th miners strike in Britain and watched with horror when I saw pictures of how strikers where dealt with by police. I was brought up in a Catholic household and there was 11 commandments we were told to live by. Number 1 – Never, ever cross a picket line. Punk rock, Flux and Crass came along and I started to formulate some opinions on the world around me. I looked for a better way and throughout the hundreds of times I heard Tony Benn speak I don’t remember saying or thinking “you’re wrong there TOny”.

    So I’ve picked songs that mean something to me tonight. Enjoy
