• 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.

    Slight Return 9

    Older folks have been on my mind recently. I met a man recently that fought in Africa in WW2 in the flight corps and said “Chocks away” and really meant it from experience. It got me thinking about age and society and how maturity is valued and thought of. Which got me thinking about how ageing and growth and the passage of time are reflected through music.
