• 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.
  • These 50 Best American Punk Albums Totally Rock 75 6th March

     


    This week’s show is an exploration or someone else’s idea of punk.  I found a website that listed the Uncut Magazine’s 50 greatest American punk LPs of all time and found it to be an interesting enough list that I have picked some of my favourite’s from it for tonights show.  Tune in for The Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, Big Boys, Really Red, The Descendents, Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Minutemen, Black Randy and the Metro Squad, The Dicks, The Dead Boys, New York Dolls, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Television, The Wipers, The Ramones, The Dickies, Blondie, Iggy Pop and James Williamson, X, The Modern Lovers, Devo, The Angry Samoans and according to Uncut Magazine, the greatest American punk band of all time, The Dictators.

    If you want to check out any of tonight’s bands further, I have linked all of the bands to bios,  the Uncut page has a spotify playlist and/or you can go to discogs for the vinyl.  Turn it up, play it loud, punk is whatever we say it is.
