Ninety-six F24um≥0.35mJy objects out of 510 are found to have a radio counterpart at 1.4GHz, 610MHz or at both frequencies, respectively, down to ∼40 and ∼200uJy. IRAC photometry sets the majority of them in the redshift interval z~=[1-3] and allows for a broad distinction between active galactic nucleus (AGN) dominated galaxies (∼47 per cent of the radio-identified sample) and systems powered by intense star formation (∼13 per cent), the remaining objects being impossible to classify. The percentage of radio identifications is a strong function of 24-um flux: almost all sources brighter than F24um∼2mJy are endowed with a radio flux at both 1.4GHz and 610MHz, while this fraction drastically decreases by lowering the 24-um flux level. Description: Radio counterparts to optically obscured Spitzer sources were searched by cross-correlating the catalogue obtained by Magliocchetti et al. (2007MNRAS.375.1121M), with those provided by Condon et al. (2003, Cat. J/AJ/125/2411), Morganti et al. (2004, Cat. J/A+A/424/371) and Garn et al. (2007, Cat. J/MNRAS/376/1251). File Summary:

Note (1): IRAC data from Lacy et al. (2005ApJS..161...41L) Note (2): All radio data at 1.4 GHz are taken from Condon et al. (2003, Cat. J/AJ/125/2411), except for those sources labelled with M, where the radio information comes from Morganti et al. (2004, Cat. J/A+A/424/371) Note (3): In all cases but J171143.9+600741 and J172005.0+592430 (marked with *) the reported radio fluxes correspond to the single radio source closest to the centre of 24-um emission Note (4): Class as follows: SB0 = star forming, F24≥0.6; F8/F24<0.1 LI = local interloper AGN0? = AGN0 ? AGN0 = AGN, F24≥0.6; F8/F24≥0.1 AGN1 = AGN, F24<0.6; F4.5/F3.6≥4.5/3.6 UNCL = unclassified, F24<0.6; F4.5/F3.6<4.5/3.6 or no IRAC information Note (5): Likely redshift range as follows: 1 = 0≤z≤1 2 = 1≤z≤1.5 3 = 1.5≤z≤3 4 = pure β>1 Power-Law (PL) AGN SED; no redshift assignment is possible in these cases 5 = no redshift estimate was possible in that case
