On My Radio

Ska-pop 2 Tone chancers The Selecter perform their best-known single, On My Radio, on the Dutch music show TopPop, presumably in 1979 or 1980. Is anyone actually plugged in? No, the programme was very mimey. Never mind, this is great stuff. Wish I could dance like that. Or at all, for that matter. The Selecter had four UK top 40 singles, with On My Radio being the first and highest-placing at number 8, although if you're being picky their first single release was their self-titled track The Selecter on the b-side of the Special AKA's hit Gangsters, which was the first 2 Tone single and reached number 6 in the charts earlier in 1979.
