Grand Theft Auto 2
- Aori - YTZ (C. Anderson) - intended to air on Ridiculous FM
Grand Theft Auto III
In Grand Theft Auto III, there are three stations that can be seen advertised on billboards throughout Liberty City. However, they are not available for selection at any time during the game and have no songs or DJs associated with them. They are Liberty FM, Liberty Soul FM and WLLC The Zone 34.9 FM. It is not clear whether these stations were originally intended to be ‘real’ stations but dropped during development, or if they were simply designed to sit alongside other fake brands advertised in the game.
While Liberty FM and Liberty Soul FM can be seen on billboards through Liberty City, only one advertisement for WLLC The Zone 34.9 FM exits in the game, which can be seen on the Newport - Fort Staunton Expressway.
Another possible non-selectable station is what has been referred to as Orbit FM. However, close inspection of the ad (both in the game and in the instruction manual) shows that the correct name is either Orbit or OR-Bit. There is no ‘FM’ and no evidence that it is a radio station.
It should also be noted that MSX FM was originally going to be called "Moving Shadow Radio". Also:
- Head Radio had a different logo and at one point, shared the same one as GTA 2's Head Radio.
- Lips 106 had a slightly different logo.
- K-JAH had a different logo with the slogan "Reggae To Rock".
- A radio station with Metal and Rock music was cut. This might have been the station that Lazlow mentions on Chatterbox FM.
- Tom Novy - Back to The Streets, originally intended to air on Head Radio.
- Conor and Jay - Carry Me Off, originally intended to air on Head Radio.
- Marydancin - Wash Him Off, originally intended to air on Lips 106 though a sample is played at the start of the station previewing some of the songs that are intended to be played on the station.
- A commercial for Ammu-Nation was cut but was later reworked into Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
- A commercial for the Military was cut. The commercial had originally intended to air on both Head Radio and Lips 106.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
There is one radio station that can be seen advertised on billboards throughout San Andreas. However, it is not available for selection at any time during the game and has no songs or DJs associated with it. The station is named Dopealicious FM. It is not clear whether the station was originally intended to be ‘real’ stations but dropped during the development of the game, or if was simply designed to sit alongside other fake brands advertised in the game. It is unknown what kind of music the station would have broadcasted, but due to the name "Dopealicious", the station likely would have played a combination of hip-hop (Dope) and R&B (alicious).
Grand Theft Auto Advance
During the development of GTA Advance when the game was originally planned to be a Game Boy Advance port of GTA III, three radio stations that was originally suppose to appear in the game. They were K-JAH, MSX FM and Lips 106. However, they were dropped and were replaced by a few GTA and GTA 2 radio tracks. Despite this, a billboard advertising K-JAH appears in the final version of the game in Bedford Point near the Ammu-Nation.
- Mantronix - King Of The Beats - originally intended to air on the game's radio, as seen in the official trailer.
