In nginx, one request is handled in one location.

If /radio/ is the location that you configured to handle this request,
then the config should apply.

If you have, for example, "location ~ mp3", then *that* would probably
be the location that is configured to handle this request (and so that
is where this "return 403;" should be.

You could try changing the line to be "location ^~ /radio/ {", but
without knowing your full config, it is hard to know if that will fix
things or break them.

http://nginx.org/r/location

That is not a thing that can be done reliably.

If "unreliable" is good enough for you, then carry on. Otherwise, come
up with a new requirement that can be done.

Cheers,
