|Edwin Starr singles chronology|
Starr's previous release, "Contact", had proved to be his best showing on the US Pop Charts (and R&B Charts) in several years. It was also a huge hit in Britain, making it into the Top Ten and peaking at #6 on the UK Singles Chart. This song was issued as its follow-up, and although less successful, still made all three charts. "H.A.P.P.Y. Radio" peaked at #79 on the Hot 100 and #28 on the R&B Charts, but was a much bigger hit in the UK, where it was a Top Ten hit (#9) in mid-1979. The song was both written and produced by Edwin Starr himself.
