The International Research Institute for Climate Prediction has lots of 
climate data, including some radiation data.

You might already know this, but I believe you need to need to be specific 
about where the radiation data are measured,
i.e. at the top of the atmosphere or at the earth's surface.


Click on the link to the 'Data Library'

I think you can specify your lat/long co-ordinates, which will give you a 
map in colour or contours.
The data in the map can then be exported to text, with each data value 
alongside a lat/long co-ordinate.

Sorry if that's a little vague, but I haven't looked at the site for over a 

Good luck
