Individual Songs

  • "Menergy" by Sylvester, "Shake Your Groove Thing" by Peaches & Herb, "Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman and "A Lover's Holiday" by Change play during the end credits of The Ballad of Gay Tony.


The station has a single billboard[2] in GTA IV.


  • 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.
