{{toc}} Various '''radio stations''' can be received on radios in most vehicles '''in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'''. They are also available in the Audio menu, while the game is paused. The soundtrack has been released in a [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Official Soundtrack Box Set|box set]] and seven separate CDs. Most radio stations play a mixture of music, DJ chat, and spoof advertising. The stations each reflect one style of music intended to evoke the atmosphere of the time. The player can listen to the following radio stations: * [[Wildstyle]] - Hip Hop, Electro * [[Flash FM]] - Pop, Rock * [[KCHAT]] - Interviews * [[Fever 105]] - Soul, Disco, R&B * [[V-Rock]] - Hard Rock, Metal * [[VCPR]] - Political Talk Show * [[Radio Espantoso]] - Latin Jazz * [[Emotion 98.3]] - Power Ballads * [[Wave 103]] - New Wave, Synthpop * [[MP3 Player]] (PC only) - User-Defined Track Player The songs are listed in the same order as they appear in the game. ==Wildstyle Pirate Radio== [[Image:Wildstyle.jpg|right|140px]] ''[[Wildstyle|Wildstyle Pirate Radio]]'' is hosted by famed DJ "Super Rocking" Mr. Magic, who was an actual rap DJ during the 1980s, when the game takes place. The station plays [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hip_hop_music hip hop] and period [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electro_%28music%29 electro] music.

As further reference to GTA III, Toni mentions that "I was dancing with my lighter and my hair went up like a Christmas tree." on Flash FM, an incident she has since forgotten in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_III GTA III] when she claims, "Luckily I've never have been [on fire]... I've done a lot of crazy things, I can tell you that... but I've never been on fire... at least not to my knowledge.", and later on she mentions being asked by friends: "do you remember the 80s?"; to which she replies: 'well, I certainly don't remember anything else ''since'' then!" .

Sheckenhausen is a ditzy girl with a cheery voice, who tends to gush over her famous guests while ignoring those she tends to find boring. She sometimes reads a book during interviews and forgets when there's a commercial playing. Of the nine radio stations in the game, KCHAT is one of the two stations not represented in the ''Grand Theft Auto: Vice City'' soundtrack.) The following persons are interviewed: # [[Jezz Torrent]] # [[Michaela Carapadis]] # [[Pat "Mr. Zoo" Flannerdy]] # [[Gethsemanee Starhawk Moonmaker]] # [[BJ Smith]] # [[Claude Maginot]] # [[Thor]] ==Fever 105== [[Image:Fever_105.jpg‎|right|140px]] ''[[Fever 105]]'' is hosted by Oliver "Ladykiller" Biscuit (voiced by Julius Dyson) and plays [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco disco], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soul_music soul] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhythm_and_blues R&B]. Fever 105 is one of two preferred radio stations tuned in by the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_gangs_in_Grand_Theft_Auto_series#Haitians Haitian gang], which can be heard after the player carjacks their gang vehicles. The station is also the default radio station set when the player enters [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_characters_in_Grand_Theft_Auto:_Vice_City#Lance_Vance Lance Vance]'s white Infernus sports car.

The station is preferred by Vice City's [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_gangs_in_Grand_Theft_Auto_series#Bikers Biker gang], which is tuned in by default after the player hijacks their gang motorcycles. An album of the songs from the station is available separately or as part of the ''Vice City'' soundtrack box set. It is interesting to note that on ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_III Grand Theft Auto III]'''s [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_III_soundtrack#Chatterbox_FM Chatterbox FM chat show], which is set circa 2001, Lazlow claims that he hosts Chatterbox because he "got kicked off the rock station." A hidden track on the V-Rock CD hints at how Lazlow got fired. In ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto:_San_Andreas Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]'', which takes place in 1992, Lazlow interviews celebrities on a radio show called "Entertaining America" on the public talk radio station [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto:_San_Andreas_soundtrack#WCTR WCTR]. He mentions that he is still getting over the 1980s and is having trouble adjusting to the 1990s. In Vice City Stories, Lazlow, who is at that time the co-host of V-Rock, is constantly belittled by the DJ Couzin Ed, and at one point retorts "Well I'm going to broadcasting school next year. Then I'm gonna come back to Vice City and be a V-Rock DJ." It is said by Lazlow that the V-Rock transmitter is located in Red Dick, Florida .

Like it's virtual successor, [[V-Rock]] played heavy metal music; indeed, given the time period [[V-Rock]] was on the air (1991-1999), it's likely the on-air station played many of the same songs as the station in the video game. [[V-Rock]] signed off the air in the wake of the Columbine tragedy, and resumed that fall with a new brand and new format. (See also [[wikipedia:WSTB|WSTB]] for additional information.) ==Radio Espantoso== [[Image:Espantoso.jpg|right|140px]] ''[[Radio Espantoso]]'' is hosted by [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disc_Jockey DJ] Pepe (voiced by Tony Chiroldes) and plays Caribbean-themed music, and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_jazz Latin jazz]. Espantoso, a radio station spoken entirely in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_language Spanish], is the preferred station of the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_gangs_in_Grand_Theft_Auto_series#Cubans Cuban gang], as evidenced by the fact that Tommy often finds himself listening to it after carjacking cars that belong to them. It is also popular among taxi cab drivers. An album of the songs from the station is available separately or as part of the ''Vice City'' soundtrack box set. On a trivial note, the radio station's name translates literally as "Terrifying Radius" or "Horrible Radius". The following songs can be heard on the station: # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cachao_L%C3%B3pez Cachao] - "A Gozar Con Mi Combo" # [[Alpha Banditos]] - "The Bull is Wrong"1 # [[Tres Apenas como eso]] - "Yo Te Miré"1 # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eumir_Deodato Eumir Deodato] - "Latin Flute" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongo_Santamar%C3%ADa Mongo Santamaría] - "Mama Papa Tu" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongo_Santamar%C3%ADa Mongo Santamaría] - "Me and You Baby (Picao y Tostao)" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machito Machito] and his [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afro-Cubans_%28band%29 Afro-Cubans] - "Mambo Mucho Mambo" # [[Unaesta]] - "La Vida es Una Lenteja"1 # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lonnie_Liston_Smith Lonnie Liston Smith] - "Expansions" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irakere Irakere] - "Anunga Nunga" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eumir_Deodato Eumir Deodato] - "Super Strut" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xavier_Cugat Xavier Cugat] and his Orchestra - "Jamay" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benny_Mor%C3%A9 Benny Moré] - "Maracaïbo Oriental" # [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tito_Puente Tito Puente] - "Mambo Gozón" ==Emotion 98.3== [[File:98.3.jpg|right|140px]] ''[[Emotion 98.3]]'' is hosted by Fernando Martinez (voiced by [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Chavez Frank Chavez]) and features [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_ballad power ballads]. An album of the songs from the station is available separately or as part of the ''Vice City'' soundtrack box set, and is the only radio station with all of its songs on the official CD. An exaggerated stereotype of a Latin Lothario, Martinez believes he has a gift with the ladies and as a match-maker. With his first appearance, in ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_III Grand Theft Auto III]'', he is exposed as a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race Caucasian] pimp from upstate [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York New York] during a radio interview in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_III#Chatterbox_FM Chatterbox FM]. As a note, Crockett's Theme by Jan Hammer is a direct reference to ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miami_Vice Miami Vice]'' since it is the theme for character [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_%22Sonny%22_Crockett James "Sonny" Crockett]. Fernando claims he was eventually forced out of Vice City when he reappears in ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto:_San_Andreas Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]'' as a caller to and then impromptu host for the Lonely Hearts Show program on [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto:_San_Andreas_soundtrack#West_Coast_Talk_Radio WCTR], before appearing as the owner of Fernando's New Beginnings (revealed to be a prostitution business, with Fernando as a pimp) in ''GTA III''.

On [[VCPR]] are the frequent donation drives by [[Michelle Montanius]] and [[Jonathan Freeloader]], who between shows beg for support money (as [[VCPR]] is a public show, it relies on donations) and try to make the listener feel as guilty as possible about listening yet not supporting Public Radio. ===Pressing Issues=== Much like [[KCHAT]], [[VCPR]] features live interviews; unlike the celebrity interviews on [[KCHAT]], however, the show broadcast on [[VCPR]] within the game is called ''Pressing Issues'', and focuses on exactly that—particular issues are chosen, and [[Maurice Chavez]] mediates an informal debate between selected guests. Three such issues are broadcast within the game. ====Morality==== The first issue deals with issues of general ''morality''. The three guests for this debate are firebrand [[Pastor Richards]] (David Green), harried activist, mother and wife [[Jan Brown]] (Maureen Silliman), and naturist [[Barry Stark]] (Renaud Sebbane). [[Pastor Richards]] is a corrupt and wholly insane televangelist, who promises salvation (in the form of a radiation proof giant living space/effigy of [[Pastor Richards|Richards]]) to all those who pay him very large donations (he later reveals that he was actually planning on using the money to build himself a palace mansion in Hawaii). [[Jan Brown]] is an overstressed, overattentive mother who is cheated on (constantly) by her husband. [[Barry Stark]] is a naturist and a liar, with sexuality issues (he gets erections several times during the debate). By the end of this segment, [[Pastor Richards]] snaps, and, disgusted by [[Barry Stark|Stark]]'s nudism, pulls a gun on him and shoots him in the genitals, while [[Jan Brown|Brown]] passes out. [[Pastor Richards]] also ends up claiming the station as his own for a short while. [[Barry Stark]] also appeared as a caller on [[Chatterbox FM]] in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] and [[Grand Theft Auto III]]'', where he makes similar comments about nudity. During the interview, [[Pastor Richards]] complains that "American newspapers are owned by Canadians with an agenda". This could be a reference to the mockumentary ''The Canadian Conspiracy'', which details how the Canadian government is subverting the United States by taking over its media, and came out in 1985, one year before the setting of the game. There is a perception amongst some gamers that [[Pastor Richards]] is a caricature either of former televangelist [[Jim Bakker]] or [[Pat Robertson]]. [[Rockstar Games]] has set up a toll-free telephone line that, when called, plays a recording of [[Pastor Richards]] discussing his "Salvation Statue." The number can be reached by calling 1-866-9-SAVE-ME (972-8363). The interview goes awry when [[Pastor Richards]] pulls a gun on [[Barry Stark]] for being immoral and shoots him in the groin. [[Barry Stark|Barry]] survives and "is in need of a proctologist". The show then cuts away to [[Jonathan Freeloader|Jonathan]] and [[Michelle Montanius|Michelle]]. ====Perception and Positive Thinking==== The second issue is that of perception and attitude. The three guests for this debate are exaggerated gothic artist [[Konstantinos Smith]] (voice artist credited as [http://konstantinos.com/ Konstantinos.com]), positive thinker, motivational speaker and shyster [[Jeremy Robard]] (Peter Silvestro), who claims that his 3 step program called "Think Your Way To Success" has changed people's lives and made him very rich, and [[Jenny Louise Crab]] (Mary Birdsong), a woman driven crazy by the murder of her foster parents, but seemingly addicted to high strength mood elevators in an effort to block the memory (as such, she is insanely hyperactive and scarily cheerful). During the show, [[Jeremy Robard|Robard]] persistently tries to sell his motivational tape series. This series is advertised elsewhere on ''Vice City'' radio, and it's worth noting that the initials for each program spells out the name of a popular illegal drug: "Motivate, Demonstrate, then Motivate Again" spells out "MDMA", the scientific abbreviation for [[wp:Ecstasy (drug)|Ecstasy]]; "Learn, Start, Doing" spells out "LSD", the abbreviation for lysergic acid diethylamide; "Think, Hold that thought, Complete" spells out "THC" the abbreviation for Tetrahydrocannabinol, the primary chemical in marijuana. Later in his dialogue he mentions, "And if you want to think *really* fast, try my crank-it-out program" (Crank is slang for Methamphetamine). Near the end of the show [[Maurice Chavez|Maurice]] eventually sees that [[Jeremy Robard]]'s program is worth nothing, that it hasn't got him anywhere, that he is not a rich successful business man, that he hasn't changed anyone's lives, and that he is nothing but a poor desperate fraud. [[Maurice Chavez|Maurice]] and [[Jeremy Robard|Jeremy]] breaks his nose with a 'heavy paperweight' on the air. ====Public Safety==== The third "debate" on the station concerns public safety, particularly in the context of the rising tide of crime promoted in no small part by [[Tommy Vercetti]], the game's protagonist. The three guests during this segment are [[Congressman Alex Shrub]] (voiced by Chris Lucas), an extremely right-wing, cocksure politician who is also the youngest congressman elected by the city. He believes that America needs to accept it's okay to be rich and forget the poor, and during the course of the debate he also reveals past facts about host [[Maurice Chavez]] (how he used to work as clown, his failed attempts to be an actor, suffering from anxiety, attending group therapy, wanting to get a sex change etc). Social activist and extreme [[wp:Liberalism|liberal]] [[Callum Crayshaw]] (Sean Modica) is a stereotypical concerned rich boy who wants to "help the poor" in completely unfeasible ways with an organization he formed called "Speaking for the Underdog", and often talks about his trips to other continents (funded by his wealthy businessman Dad, who doesn't seem to care about the same issues at all). The last panel member is [[wp:secession|secession]]ist and last-minute panel replacement (The previous guest was carjacked and decided to stay at home arming himself to the teeth.) [[John F. Hickory]] (LJ Gansen), an extremely radical native [[wp:Florida|Floridian]] (though it is revealed he only moved to Vice City recently) who believes that by digging a suitably large river Florida can break free of the American mainland, and finally put a stop to the people flooding in from the northern states. Of note is the common (but unofficial) perception that [[Alex Shrub]] is a caricature of presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, as well as Florida governor Jeb Bush. His last name Shrub would add to this, as a shrub is basically a bush. ==Other Songs== [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] includes a few songs present in the game, through various cutscenes, that are not featured on any radio station. These include: * Al Di Meola - "Ritmo De La Noche" (Featured during the "[[Bar Brawl]]" cutscene.) * Big Country - "In a Big Country" (Featured during "[[The Driver]]" cutscene, only in earlier PS2 versions.) * Whodini - "Freaks Come out at Night" (Featured during "[[The Job]]" cutscene. This song later appears on the soundtrack of [[GTA: Vice City Stories]] on [[Fresh 105 FM]].) * Blue Öyster Cult - "I'm Burnin' for You" (Featured during the "[[Boomshine Saigon]]" cutscene.) Two unidentified songs in Café Robina, not played on Radio Espantoso, can be heard in the cutscenes to the missions [[Naval Engagement]] and [[Trojan Voodoo]]. Two other unidentified songs are played during the [[Introduction (GTA VC)|busted deal]] cutscene, and the game [[Keep Your Friends Close...|credits]]. ==Notes== 1 - Fictional artist, song was made for the game. ==See Also== * [[Commercials in GTA Vice City]] {{GTA}} [[es:Radios de Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] [[Category:GTA Vice City]] [[Category:Radio]]
