This paper presents the analysis of the radio continuum, far infrared, optical and neutral hydrogen properties of a sample of 88 Sbc galaxies. The analysis is geared toward understanding the origin of the non-thermal radio emission and reveals a striking correlation between the radio emissivity in the disk component and the far infrared color index S_100 micron_/ S_60 micron_. This relation can be understood if the non-thermal radio emission is strongly related to recent, galaxy wide star formation. Key words: spiral galaxies - radio continuum - far infrared - star formation - magnetic field
