Heat sources and electronic gear

I moved into a new room and there is an old fashioned radiator in the corner, right by the table where I want to place my keyboard, sequencer and mixer. (I would like to keep them permanently set up so I won't be too lazy to practice).

The manuals say "don't place electronic gear near a heat source such as a radiator." I wonder how near is 'too near." Do they mean 'don't place it ON the radiator"? The table is about a foot away from it. It is not one of those burning-hot steam ones, but a hot-water one. As such it never gets too hot to touch, only pleasantly warm.

So, is this dangerous to my equipment and should I reorganize the room?

I'd reorganize, just to be safe. Electronic gear produces heat of its own; having it overheat because it's too close to other heat sources won't be good for it and could cause permanent damage.
