If ${\cal A} $ and ${\cal B}$ are disjoint ideals on $\omega$, there is a {\it tower preserving\/} $\sigma$-centered forcing which introduces a subset of $\omega$ which meets every infinite member of ${\cal A}$ in an infinite set and is almost disjoint from every member of ${\cal B}$. We can then produce a model in which all compact separable radial spaces are Fr\'echet, thus answering a question of P.~Nyikos. The question of the existence of compact ccc radial spaces which are not Fr\'echet was first asked by Chertanov (see \cite{Ar78}).
