Like radio stations in the original Grand Theft Auto, the Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 and Grand Theft Auto: London 1961 expansion packs for the game feature a range of different radio stations which are randomly selected whenever the player enters any vehicle. A police radio band is also included exclusively for emergency vehicles. The technical aspects of radio stations are identical as with GTA 1's, and as such, the games also support custom CD audio tracks the same manner.

Radio stations

When originally developed for GTA London 1969, the radio stations were specifically created to reflect the late-1960s era in which the game takes place, covering period genres, including reggae.

The stations earn the honor of being the first in the series to use real-life music from the period alongside several stations featuring only in-house developed tracks. The vast bulk of soundtrack music were taken from Italian films from the late-1960s and early 1970s, and performed primarily by Riz Ortolani, Francesco De Masi and Alessandro Alessandroni, and Piero Umiliani and Gianfranco Reverberi.

Although GTA London 1969 and GTA London 1961 are shown to take place 8 years apart, the radio stations and their playlists are inexplicably unchanged.

Boosh Sounds

  • The Upsetters - "Return of Django" (1969)
  • The Upsetters - "Dollar in the Teeth" (1969)

Boosh Sounds primarily plays reggae music by The Upsetters. "Dollar in the Teeth" was released as part of the double A-side of "Return of Django", reflecting its presence alongside "Return of Django" in the station.

Groovy Baby

"Le Malizie Di Venere - Seq. 3" is also played on Westminster Wireless.

Monster Sounds
