K-JAH Radio is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, which plays reggae music with Jamaican influences. The station is hosted by Horace "The Pacifier" Walsh circa 2001 in GTA III, and Natalie Walsh Davis circa 1998 in GTA Liberty City Stories.

All tracks in GTA III come from Scientist's 1981 album Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires, while all the tracks in GTA Liberty City Stories were featured on the 2002 compilation album Watch How The People Dancing - Unity Sounds From The London Dancehall, 1986 - 1989.

The GTA III version of the station talks about "dope", in other words, drugs. This could be SPANK, the drug that Catalina and her Cartel supply to the Uptown Yardies to sell on the streets. It is also one of the few stations not owned by "Love Media", the fictional corporation owned by Donald Love, as can be seen from Horace's line "We have no love for Donald Love, man."

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, another dub/reggae station, K-JAH West, appears, and it appears there is a link between the two because the DJ states, "...from Liberty City to San Andreas".

Trivia

  • In GTA Liberty City Stories, the Uptown Yardies have the logo of the K-JAH radio station on their outfits, which ignites the connection of this gang to the radio station.
  • In Grand Theft Auto Advance, despite the lack of changeable radio stations, the K-JAH logo can be seen on a building in Bedford Point next to the Ammu-Nation, along with the slogan "Reggae to rock".
  • In GTA III, when switching through stations, it only says JAH Radio. Despite this, the radio DJ will still say "You're listenin' to K-JAH Radio."
