Jazz from a time long before it became elevator music.

Jazz Nation Radio (JNR) is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto IV that plays jazz music.


The station is hosted by jazz musician Roy Haynes. It does not appear in Episodes from Liberty City and is instead replaced by Self-Actualization FM.

In Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition, JNR, along with all other GTA IV exclusive radio stations, appears in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

This is the favourite radio station of Jimmy Pegorino and Phil Bell.

Individual Songs
  • "St. Thomas" by Sonny Rollins is often played by buskers throughout the city. If the player donates enough money to them, they will eventually receive the song as a ringtone for their cell phone.
  • "Night and Day" by Charlie Parker is always playing during the Truck Hustle mission cutscene.
  • "Move" by Miles Davis is featured in the GTA IV Gamestop TV Commercial.




  • An advertisement for Jazz Nation Radio claims that it is "at the end of the dial". However, K109 The Studio has a higher frequency.
