The radio options listed on the official website

Although Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 was treated as an expansion for the first game (Grand Theft Auto), the soundtrack is completely different. Here, once more Rockstar puts radio stations that the player can listen when driving a vehicle, in addition to a police radio station.

It is worth noting that the subsequent expansion, Grand Theft Auto: London 1961 uses this same soundtrack even though all the songs were released after 1961.

In order to capture the essence of London in the late 1960s, and give the feeling of the British crime scene from the period, Rockstar decided to license music from the era. This would be the first use of licensed songs in the game series, a feature that would become recurrent in subsequent games. The soundtrack uses a combination of early reggae and Italian pop, beat, soul and jazz from film scores of the period. In addition to these licensed tracks, Rockstar again created some original songs, these also fit in the era depicted.

Running time for all the stations in Grand Theft Auto: London is very short, as the stations play only one or two songs (with the exception of Westminster Wireless, which plays three). In fact all 12 stations rank among the shortest stations in the series.

The radio stations that the player can listen in GTA London are as follows:

Radio Stations[]

Bush Sounds[]

Bush Sounds plays reggae by The Upsetters. "Dollar in the Teeth" was released as part of the double A-side of "Return of Django", reflecting its presence alongside "Return of Django" in the station.

  • The Upsetters - "Return of Django" (1969)
  • The Upsetters - "Dollar in the Teeth" (1969)

Heavy Heavy Monster Sound[]

Heavy Heavy Monster Sound plays reggae and ska. Unlike Bush Sounds, it features two varied bands as opposed to centering around one. The bands are seminal skinhead acts. Its DJ states that the station broadcasts on 666, on the medium wave.

Blow Upradio[]

Blow Upradio plays beat. This station is notable because, at a running time of only 1 minute and 55 seconds, it is the shortest radio station in the Grand Theft Auto series. "Beat Fuga Shake" is taken from the soundtrack for the 1967 Italian film "Il mistero dell'ombra" (also known as "Tiffany Memorandum").

Kaleidoscope[]

Kaleidoscope plays pop and beat. The tracks are taken from the 1967 Italian film "Troppo per vivere... poco per morire" (also known as "Your Turn to Die").

Sound of Soho plays jazz. "Tema di Londra M. 1" is taken from the soundtrack for the 1967 Italian film "Colpo maestro al servizio di Sua Maestà britannica" (also known as "Master Stroke"), while "Latin Quarter" is taken from the soundtrack of the 1969 Italian film "Una sull'altra" (also known as "One on Top of the Other").

  • Francesco De Masi & Alessandro Alessandroni - "Tema di Londra M. 1" (1967)
  • Riz Ortolani - "Latin Quarter" (1969)

Radio Penelope[]

Radio Penelope is hosted by Doctor Peter Pants-On, the only named DJ in GTA London. The station plays pop and soul. "The Roaring Twenties" is taken from the soundtrack of "Una sull'altra", while "Teresa L'Illusa" is taken from the soundtrack of the 1973 Italian film "Teresa la ladra" (also known as "Teresa the Thief").

  • Riz Ortolani - "The Roaring 20's" (1969)

  • Riz Ortolani - "Tiffany Sequence M. 8" (1967)
  • Riz Ortolani - "Tiffany Sequence M. 22" (1967)

Westminster Wireless[]

Trivia[]

  • The year with the most licensed songs is 1969, with nine songs.
  • This is the first instance of the use of licensed music in the game series.
  • Both Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 and Grand Theft Auto: London 1961 use the same soundtrack. This creates an anachronism in London 1961 as the earliest song on the soundtrack is from 1967. Riz Ortolani's "Teresa l'illusa" is anachronistic to both games as it was released in 1973.
  • This is the first game in the series to feature an original police radio track.
