In 1998 (the setting for GTA Liberty City Stories) the station is hosted by Reni Wassulmaier. However, by 2001 (the setting for GTA III) she has been replaced by Toni.

Description

Trivia

  • The radio station's designation is totally fictitious, as FM radio stations in the United States only have an odd number after the decimal point.
  • All the songs on the GTA III tracklist were featured in the 1983 hit film "Scarface", the soundtrack for which was produced by Giorgio Moroder. Rockstar Games have cited "Scarface" as a major influence on both GTA III and the wider Grand Theft Auto series.
  • A preview of Debbie Harry's "Rush Rush" can be heard in the GTA III version of Lips 106.
  • On all versions of GTA III, at the start of the song "Shake It Up" by Elizabeth Daily, Toni talks about being on a tour bus where Duran Duran were playing. However, the part where Duran Duran's name is being mentioned is muted. The unmuted line can be found on the official website for the game.
  • In GTA III, some of the Hoods may randomly sing "Push it to the Limit". Paramedics will also randomly sing some of the songs from this station, alongside songs from Head Radio, K-JAH and Lips 106.
  • In GTA III this is the Colombian Cartel's second favorite radio station, however in GTA Liberty City Stories this is the Triads' favorite radio station.
  • "The Chase" by Giorgio Moroder was featured in the launch trailer for the iOS version of GTA Liberty City Stories.
