'''Lips 106''' or '''Lips 106 FM''' is a radio station in [[Grand Theft Auto III|''Grand Theft Auto III'']] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|''Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories'']]. It plays Top 40 music, and is the favorite radio station of the [[Yakuza]] in GTA III, since if the player jacks a [[Yakuza Stinger]], this station would be heard inside. In 1998, (the setting of Liberty City Stories), the station is hosted by [[Cliff Lane]] with [[Andee]] as his "sidekick". By 2001, (the setting of GTA III), Andee is the only DJ. Cliff was likely fired due to the perverted lust for teenage girls he expressed in Liberty City Stories.

In 1998 (the setting of ''GTA Liberty City Stories''), Lips is hosted by [[Cliff Lane]] and [[Andee]] and plays teen and dance pop, strongly targeting a young female demographic (likely because of Cliff Lane's lust for preteen girls).
*[[Rudy LaFontaine]] - "Funk in Time"

*Sawaar - "Love is the Feeling"

During the [[Beta Releases in GTA Advance|development]] of ''[[GTA Advance]]'', Lips 106 was one of the three radio stations that was originally suppose to appear in the game (along with [[K-JAH]] and [[MSX FM]]), but was dropped.
*[[Sunshine Shine]] - "Mine Until Monday"
+
*Credit Check - "Get Down"

By 2001 (the setting of ''GTA III''), Andee is the sole DJ, and the station has switched to more of a contemporary pop mix station, with genres ranging from rock to hip hop to R&B to even jazz-funk. According to Andee, all of the songs now are from "the 70's to the 90's". For the [[PS2]] version of this game, some lyrics were censored for profanity, most notably those from Fatamarse's "[[Bump To The Music]]" and Da Shootaz's "[[Grand Theft Auto (song)|Grand Theft Auto]]".
*Cool Timers - "Tonight"

*[[Nina Barry]] - "Bassmatic"

"Now, 10 minutes of music guaranteed! As soon as you wait through another 9 minutes of messages from our sponsors. Lips 106."
— Station jingle in GTA III
"Making sure American radio sounds awful one record at a time! Pop music just got worse. Lips 106."
— Station jingle in GTA Liberty City Stories


Lips 106 or Lips 106 FM is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, it acts as a Top 40 station and plays mostly pop, among other genres.

Description Edit

Lips, like Head Radio, is a mainstream station that plays pop music. It doesn't feel any shame about being a commercial radio, in fact one of its idents in GTA III says "commercial radio at its best, and proud of it!" The station's headquarters can be found in Staunton Island. Its call sign is KBDDF, according to the GTA III website.

In 1998 (the setting of GTA Liberty City Stories), Lips is hosted by Cliff Lane and Andee and plays teen and dance pop, strongly targeting a young female demographic (likely because of Cliff Lane's lust for preteen girls).

During the development of GTA Advance, Lips 106 was one of the three radio stations that was originally suppose to appear in the game (along with K-JAH and MSX FM), but was dropped.

By 2001 (the setting of GTA III), Andee is the sole DJ, and the station has switched to more of a contemporary pop mix station, with genres ranging from rock to hip hop to R&B to even jazz-funk. According to Andee, all of the songs now are from "the 70's to the 90's". For the PS2 version of this game, some lyrics were censored for profanity, most notably those from Fatamarse's "Bump To The Music" and Da Shootaz's "Grand Theft Auto".

The songs in both renditions of Lips are original creations made by the Rockstar staff especially for the games.

All of the station's songs from GTA Liberty City Stories are available as ringtones in Grand Theft Auto IV.

InfluenceEdit

Lips 106 is possibly based on WBLI 106.1, which plays Top 40 music in Long Island, New York. Its name may also be a reference to the Kiss FM radio network common through Europe and North America.
