RadioActive Promotions was set up in 2008 by Julie Barnes and Jessica Hall whose plugging partnership started over a decade ago when they ran the highly successful regional department at award winning promotions company, Anglo Plugging. With offices in West London and Glasgow, RadioActive Promotions work with a range of clients from unsigned bands to major label artists.

The RadioActive Promotions roster reflects its founders’ tastes – big guitars, classic songwriting and intelligent pop. Past campaigns have ranged from The Libertines to McFly, so the basic message is ‘If we love it, we want to work with you!’.

Julie and Jessica have always had a one to one relationship with all their clients, forging long standing relationships with labels and artist managers that speak for themselves.

Whether it is getting those first plays for a new emerging artist, or co-ordinating full blown campaigns for big established names, RadioActive will ensure the right people hear your music. As the company name suggests, we never tire in sourcing new contacts across regional radio – be it commercial radio, local BBC, community or student radio.

  • I’ve worked with Julie and Jessica at Radio-Active for years and they’re great. They’re one of my first-stops when I have a guitar band I want taken seriously at regional radio and worked from the bottom up through to mainstream ILR playlists. They’re discerning, passionate, honest and really care about the music they work with AND just as importantly they’re lovely people.

  • RadioActive Promotions are a massively important part of our team, I know how hard our records are worked regionally and what strong relationships they have at radio.

    Our tracks are played on all the right stations and RadioActive Promotions don't give up until they get the playlist they want.

    When we are in full promotional mode, I know that what RadioActive Promotions asks of Paul really will make a difference to the album or single.

  • I've worked with RadioActive Promotions for many years. They always deliver. Great planning and strategy and tenacious to the end

  • RadioActive is quite simply organised, results-driven, communicative and their reports are excellent. Pretty much all you can ask for in a regional radio plugging company.
