Disclaimer: I have recently been made aware that it is quite likely that Radioactive is in the habit of illegally producing these CDs without permission from the artists. More than a handful of bands whose music has been put out on the label have made this claim. It has been said that much of their product is made via "unsanctioned needle drops": i.e. illegitimately processed from clean vinyl as opposed to the master tapes. So the moral question I sit here with is: Having come to this knowledge, should I be promoting the label by playing their goods on air?

And I have decided I am too much a music whore to ignore this music (which I always win on Ebay at reduced prices), very much still want to continue to share it with others via radio, and know of no other way to afford its purchase (original vinyl copies? Oh come now!). I will therefore continue to play these CDs while supplying a disclaimer during the show as to the potential for their dubious provenance. And will stick this particular disclaimer on each playlist of shows dedicated to the Radioactive label.

Comments are welcome re: this ethical dilemma!
