Tuff Gong

Tuff Gong Radio is a reggae radio station in Grand Theft Auto IV hosted by Carl Bradshaw.

Description

Tuff Gong Radio is considered a more traditional companion to Massive B Soundsystem, playing classical reggae compared to Massive B's dancehall, which is rooted at reggae but is more commercialized.

The station's existence is an apparent nod to the late Bob Marley, a prominent reggae artist. Indeed, the station's playlist consists of nothing but music from Bob Marley & The Wailers, as well as Bob Marley's two sons, Stephen Marley and Damian Marley. The "Tuff Gong" name itself may be derived from a nickname of Bob Marley's (after Rastafari leader Leonard "The Gong" Howell), or the name of the label founded by Bob Marley & The Wailers in 1970.

As RamJam FM replaces Tuff Gong Radio and Massive B Soundsystem in Episodes from Liberty City, the station will not be available in the compilation's version of The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

  • Stephen Marley - "Chase Dem" (2005)
