Emotion 98.3 is a radio station hosted by Fernando Martinez (voiced by Frank Chavez) in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and by Lionel Makepeace (voiced by Steve Stratton) in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The station features power ballads from the late seventies to the mid-eighties. Emotion 98.3 is one of three preferred radio stations by the Patrol Invest Group and Bikers, evidenced when the player steals their gang vehicles, which may be tuned to Emotion 98.3 by chance. 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.
As a note, "Crockett's Theme" by Jan Hammer is a reference to Miami Vice since it's the theme for James "Sonny" Crockett.
