Vice City FM is a radio station exclusive to the disc version of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City. The station plays pop music from the 1980s and is hosted by Fernando Martinez, who was the DJ on Emotion 98.3 in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The station is named after the city of Vice City, and replaces The Vibe 98.8 from Grand Theft Auto IV.


Songs marked with ** were removed from station in future updates.

  • There are several recognisable references to both the events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and 1980s culture in general, including the radio stinger which includes the phrase "ate your cassette deck", a common phenomenon whereby a cassette tape would be "chewed up" by the tape player.
  • Evan Moss sings along to "Maneater" by Hall & Oates in the opening cutscene of the mission Bang Bang. This is the only time the player can hear the song in the game if they own the downloadable version, as Vice City FM only appears in the disc version, though it is available on the Steam download for PC.
  • The main verse and chorus of "Maneater" by Hall & Oates was sampled by rapper Royce Da 5'9 in his song "We're Live (Danger)", which was featured in GTA III's hip-hop station Game FM.
  • "The Look" by Roxette plays in one of The Ballad of Gay Tony trailers.
    • This song, along with "Love Changes (Everything)" by Climie Fisher and "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, can also be heard during private dances in strip clubs.
  • This is one of Tony Prince's favorite radio stations, as it is one of the default radio stations in his Schafter, alongside K109 The Studio.
  • A number of bands are listed on a billboard advertising this station around Liberty City. Interestingly, Go West and Tears For Fears are included even though none of their songs appear on the station. In addition, no song titles from the two bands are seen in the file "american.gxt", but DJ commentary in the station's files suggests that Go West's "We Close Our Eyes" and Tears for Fears' "Head over Heels" would have appeared on the station.
  • Michael Jackson's "Another Part of Me" can be briefly heard in one of the stingers for the station.
  • The style of writing on the station logo is the exact same as the logo used on the front of the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City instruction manual and the splash screen seen while quitting the game in the PC version.
