In the U.S., and I assume elsewhere, it is the performance right for
the musical composition that is required to broadcast a song over the
(spectrum) radio. A broadcast isn't considered a derivative work so
the Share-Alike section of the CC would likely not be triggered. You
could try to argue that "adaptations" under the license are broader
than derivative works, but my guess is that would not get very far.
Very bad idea to rely on a judge to apply Share-Alike to radio
