The band had this to say about the decision to cover the two-tone classic:
"Early on in the pandemic we got asked to cover a 1980s punk rock song for a special edition release of the comic What's the Furthest Place From Here. Mike immediately said "We should do a ska song" to which Jarrett replied "Cool. It should be The Selecter" followed quickly with Marissa stating "Great. Let's do On My Radio." It happened over the course of about 30 seconds. I don't know if we have ever made such a quick decision as a band. Many people are familiar with The Specials but The Selecter should be just as renowned. Their first string of singles and first LP are legendary and Pauline Black's live performances, as captured in Dance Craze, are absolutely transcendent."
