The self-described "home of real rock and roll", Vinewood Boulevard Radio is a radio station that plays alternative and indie rock influenced from various retro rock styles, including garage rock, psychedelic rock, noise rock, and post-punk. The station displays a "party-loving slacker" attitude and is hosted by Wavves members Nate Williams and Stephen Pope, who can be heard discussing their irresponsible lifestyles, playfully arguing, and making social commentary in between songs. Occasionally, Nate and Steve do make a point to listeners not to confuse the station with Radio Mirror Park, claiming "those guys dress way better than us."
It may be based on KROQ-FM, a modern rock station in Los Angeles. However, Vinewood Boulevard Radio is more likely based on Burger Records Radio, as the station overall seems to pay tribute to the Orange County-based Burger Records independent label, and the garage-based alternative rock scene associated with it. Several of the bands on VBR are also either signed or affiliated with Burger Records.
This is one of the preferred stations of Michael De Santa.
