"Rise FM, broadcasting live from The Planetarium! It's 24-7, 365, off-the-hook stay-on-forever party venue! We make your dreams come true!"

Rise FM is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories that plays trance and house. It is hosted by Andre the Accelerator in GTA III and Boy Sanchez in GTA Liberty City Stories.


In GTA III, Rise is hosted by Andre the Accelerator. The playlist is presented as a continuous liveset which is being played and broadcast live from a nightclub called The Planetarium. It doesn't feature commercials. One song is featured twice in the playlist, a rare case in radios in the GTA series, although it is featured to complete the "loop" of the station.

In GTA Liberty City Stories the station is hosted by Boy Sanchez. It features one set of commercials and broadcasts from a studio in Newport, Staunton Island.

Contrary to the other electronic music radio in GTA III, MSX FM, which plays drum and bass, Rise FM plays house (in 1998) and trance (in 2001).

GTA Liberty City Stories


  • It appears this radio station was left behind when GTA III was remastered for the PC version, as the other stations in the game have noticeably higher quality.
  • This is one of the favourite stations of the Colombian Cartel.
