Hosted by Fernando Martinez (voiced by Frank Chavez[4]) and features 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 lover, Martinez believes he has a gift with the ladies and as a match-maker. This contrasts with his first appearance, in Grand Theft Auto III, where he is exposed as a Caucasian man from upstate New York during a radio interview in Chatterbox FM.

As a note, Crockett's Theme by Jan Hammer is a reference to Miami Vice since its the theme for James "Sonny" Crockett.

Fernando claims he was eventually forced out of Vice City when he reappears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as a caller to and then impromptu host for the Lonely Hearts Show program on 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.
