"This is radio station where American and European sensibilities meet, San Fierro Underground Radio! And now the godfather of house music: Herr Frankie Knuckles, yaaa! This "Your Love", take me away Frank! I'm starting to pee!"
— SF-UR
"Quality house music, from deep in the underground, brought to you by an excitable German. This is music for people in the know."
— GTA San Andreas Website


San Fierro Underground Radio (SF-UR) is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas which plays house music. It is hosted by the German house-music enthusiast Hans Oberlander (voiced by Lloyd Floyd).

Description

SF-UR takes the identity of an underground radio, and as such it was probably meant originally to not feature any commercials (like other electronic music radios in previous games, like Rise FM and MSX FM), something that wasn't possible due to the way radio mechanics work in GTA San Andreas. Many of the earliest house-music acts in history are featured in its playlist. Much like Wave 103, SF-UR celebrates technology as its host happily exclaims, almost crying, "The computers have taken control! Isn't it beautiful? I think so, ya. Ya".

The host is Hans Oberlander, who is bilingual, being able to speak both English and German, occasionally alternating between the two during his commentary. Hans is a susceptible, insecure, loud and obnoxious guy who thinks his music is superior as he comments "It is any other music apart from house? I doubt it. Finally an electronic reality become believing". He takes a "rich and pretentious" role as he boasts of his parties in his condo that are "Very exclusive, so exclusive that no one is invited". He has a drug habit and his emotionally unstable personality reflects it, his family also takes drugs as revealed when his father calls him to the radio. His father also criticizes his music and scolds him "Son! This music's terrible! If you're going to be merciless, you have to send them beautiful Wagnerian operas."

As the name suggests, SF-UR is broadcast from a secret location in San Fierro.
