Hello Marcia,
RADISCH isn't a German but a Czech or Slovenian name. It originates in 
one of the various eponymous towns and villages in Bohemia, Styria or 

In Bohemia:

    Radisch = Hradiště
    Langenradisch = Dlouhé Hradiště
    Scheibenradisch = Okrouhlé Hradiště
    Ungarisch Hradisch = Uherské Hradiště

Hradiště = Burgstätte = ruinous castle
hrad = Burg, Pfalz = castle, palace

Even the name of the Northern Italian town of Gradisca, Friuli [old 
German: Gradis am Sontig, 10 km from the Slovenian border] comes from 
the same origin.

from Hilden, Germany
