well, radio waves pass through a lot of things without interacting with it

So does visible light. All this means is that a lot more things will appear to be transparent to something that sees radio waves.

it might be possible, but that fact I think makes it unlikely

How do you figure?

I can think of evolutionary advantages.  You have to think abstractly when dealing with alien life-forms, because they don't have to be anything like what we would be familiar with.  Perhaps they happen to use radio waves to communicate organism-to-organism.  Some sort of biological radio transmitting device that is visible to their kind (or anyone else that can decipher the messages).

It is a little strange, but it wouldn't surprise me.
