This double album was originally released in 1980, not long after Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" album dominated the pop and dance charts.
the eponymous "On The Radio"
and the hit duet with Barbra Streisand, "Enough Is Enough (No More Tears)" ( in a very long, extended mix ).
These two tracks took up the entirety of side four, while the other three sides were made up of suites of Summer's previous hits.
Vocally speaking, one of the standouts for me would be MacArthur Park; each time the song modulated to a higher key, Donna went right up there with it and managed to not get drowned by the music. Another standout is of course her duet with Barbra Streisand (Enough is Enough).
This is the only greatest hits album from Donna that has a sense of flow! You can hear one song after the other as they are mixed together with eachother masterfully! Each song has a chemistry with the next song! Everytime I hear this album, I never get tired of it! My personal favorite is the song, "I Love You"! I feel that this particular song stands out much better on this album! Another favorite mix is the song, "Love To Love You Baby"! I love the extra harmonies that were added in the song, along with the electronic sounds flowing into "Try Me, I Know We Can Make It"! Great song! Then, I love the electronic sounds flowing into the next song, "I Feel Love"!
"Our Love" was probably the only song for me that felt like a B side of an album(for this particular album)! When I hear it, it reminds me of Donna just getting her voice out of her system, and telling how she really feels about love! It's still a very strong song for her vocally! "I Remember Yesterday" is the most unique sounding song on the album! The words, and the music make you feel as though you are transcending back in time! What an excellent tribute to history, and the 1940's in disco fashion! "Heaven Knows" is one of Donna's best songs! I like the transition between this song and "Last Dance" so much!! Beautiful!!
Then, the disco rock begins with "Macarther Park". I always like to see her sing this song "live" as she first walks on stage! The horn arrangement is magnificient, and Donna's voice is amazing!
That's classic Donna for me! "Dim All The Lights" is an excellent song for Donna as well, and her voice rings out with brilliance!
I also like "Sunset People" which works perfectly as one of the last songs on this album! After hearing all the other songs one after the other, this song drives me wild! The best song on the album would be, "On The Radio"! The way Donna portrays the character in the song, her crying lyrics, & stunning voice really make you fall in love with her! She is "Hot Stuff", and not one of the "Bad Girls".

Donna Summer - Love To Love You Baby
Donna Summer - I Feel Love -
"One day in Berlin ... [Brian] Eno came running in and said, 'I have heard the sound of the future.' ... he puts on 'I Feel Love', by Donna Summer ... He said, 'This is it, look no further. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years.' Which was more or less right
