Trivia

  • This is the favourite radio station of Bernie Crane and Tony Prince, and is the default station in Tony's car. It is also one of the two favorite radio stations of the Albanian Mob, the other being Liberty City Hardcore.
  • This radio station plays inside the Alderney Safehouse, Hercules and The 69th Street Diner.
  • "Menergy" by Sylvester, "Shake Your Groove Thing" by Peaches & Herb, "Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman and "A Lover's Holiday" by Change plays during the end credits of The Ballad of Gay Tony.
  • One of the tracks, "Walk The Night" by the Skatt Brothers, was the subject of a rather infamous licensing event. Due to the death of Skatt Brothers lead singer Sean Delaney, Rockstar Games hired a private investigator to track down Delaney's surviving relatives to secure the rights of the track as the company felt that the song was essential to the game.
