My experience in the world of computers has been that active cooling (convection) is far more effective than passive (radiation), and I assume it applies equally to cars. With as little as 1-2 cubic feet per minute of airflow (and a radiator fan is likely in the hundreds, if not thousands!), you're getting more cooling from convection than radiation. Even a slight breeze over your radiator is probably helping more than radiation.
