- "Horace Walsh say "simmer down the violence!" Too much blood in the city streets. And too many babies are crying in Liberty City..."
- — GTA III
K-JAH Radio is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, which plays reggae music with Jamaican influences. The station is hosted by Horace "The Pacifist" Walsh circa 2001 in GTA III, and Natalie Walsh Davis circa 1998 in GTA Liberty City Stories.
The radio is also mentioned in Grand Theft Auto Advance.
In GTA III, K-JAH is run by Jamaican DJ, Horace "The Pacifist" Walsh. Playing dub on the station, he makes commentary between and during songs about the conflict going on in Liberty City, encouraging citizens to be peaceful and listen to Dub. He will also comment on the SPANK problem in Liberty City, saying things such as "Iman say: there's too much SPANK buisness a gwaan" or giving shout outs to the Yardies telling them "To stay off the SPANK, my brethren". It is also one of the few stations not owned by Love Media, the mega-corporation owned by Donald Love, as seen from Horace's line, "Mi have no love fi Donald Love, mon". This may explain why the radio doesn't have commercials.
During the development of GTA Advance, K-JAH was one of the three radio stations that was originally suppose to appear in the game (along with MSX FM and Lips 106), but was dropped. However, a billboard with the stations logo appears in Bedford Point near the Ammu-Nation, along with the slogan "Reggae to rock". It is located near the territory of the Yakuza in Liberty City.

Grand Theft Auto III soundtrack:
GTA Liberty City Stories soundtrack:
- Both renditions of the station contain songs from the same album. In GTA III, the album is Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires by Scientist and in GTA Liberty City Stories, it's the compilation Watch How the People Dancing: Unity Sounds from the London Dancehall 1986–1989.
- In GTA III, when switching through stations, it only says JAH Radio. Despite this, the radio DJ will still say "you're listenin' to K-JAH Radio". This was most likely a developer's oversight.
- Part of the station's frequency is "K-Jah 103". Horace is heard saying it on one occasion.
- This is the favorite radio station of the Uptown Yardies.
- It might even be owned by the Yardies, as Horrace Walsh says "let no man trouble with this business, this business is Yardie business".
- K-JAH West DJs Marshall Peters and Johnny Lawton refer to Liberty City's K-JAH as K-JAH East, as the station is broadcasted on the east coast. However, neither Horace Walsh or Natalie Walsh Davis in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, respectively, refer to the station as so. It could be possible that K-JAH West had ceased broadcasting by the time of the events of GTA Liberty City Stories.
- During the San Andreas Anniversary Weekend, it was possible to find a T-Shirt with the K-JAH logo in the random Special Crate drops in GTA Online as a wearable piece of clothing for the multiplayer character.
