• 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.
  • That Jay Reatard Totally Rocks 15th January


    Tuesday was the 5 year anniversary of the death of one of my musical heroes, Jay Reatard.  When I discovered Jay, I discovered a musician who seemed to nearly breath music at the expense of everything else and I found someone with a dedication to making music that I truly admired.  So this week’s show is completely Reatarded.  The first half of the show is chronological, starting with his first band The Reatards and finishing with his final album as Jay Reatard.  The second half of the show is all bands that had some connection to Jay Reatard in one way or another.
