Vladivostok FM is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City. It is named after the Russian city Vladivostok. The station can be heard playing inside Perestroika and Comrades Bar in Hove Beach.

In the original GTA IV, the radio station plays almost entirely Russian music (with the exception of Ruslana herself, from the Ukraine) in a wide variety of genres. In Episodes From Liberty City, Vladivostok FM undergoes a very radical reformatting and loses its Russian influence - it now plays house/dance music, mostly by artists from New York and London with some Dutch and French. The new playlist can be heard inside the Bahama Mamas Club.

When Grand Theft Auto IV is updated by the downloadable version of The Ballad of Gay Tony, the station alternates between a program of World Beat/Eastern European pop music and one of western European dance music.

  • It is the first radio station that the player hears in GTA IV.
  • Vladivostok FM is the favorite radio station of all notable members of the Russian Mafia. It's always turned on in Vlad Glebov's Comrades Bar and Dimitri Rascalov says, that this is the music he and Mikhail Faustin used to listen to, back in the Old Country (the only song that would chronologically apply is the one by Kino). Coincidentally, they were once stationed in Vladivostok while they were in the Navy. The station also plays when Ray Bulgarin is in his car.
  • DJ Paul mispronounces Guetta's name when he says "Straight out of France this is David Gu-wetta".
  • Vladivostok is Russia's largest port city located along the Pacific.
