Air in Radiators

Question: Is it true that if you try purging the air from the boiler end of the water supply, that you are only purging the air from the 1 1/2" pipe that feeds the radiators, and not the actual radiators themself ?

You need to purge all the air from the system. Often boilers are located in the basement, and of course air rises. So there is usually a need to purge air from other parts of the system, and usually their are fittings on radiators and often other parts of the piping system to permit purging.
