Rockstar Games updated the official Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas site with information on the ten radio stations in the game, as well as a teaser on the music set to be included.
The Web site offers a car stereo interface that features clickable buttons that correspond to each station. Clicking the button will call up information on the station such as DJ and its format, and stream a short audio clip that includes the DJ’s voice and a snippet of music.
News source: Gamespot The first station is Master Sounds, a classics station, helmed by Johnny “The Love Giant” Parkinson, that features a clip of “The Payback” from soul legend James Brown.
The second station is Playback, a hip hop station led by Forth Right MC which plays “Children’s Story” by Slick Rick. Bounce FM, whose playlist draws on all manner of funk, chosen by DJ The Funkitpus, is the third station. “Funky Worm” from the Ohio Players serves as clip for the station.
The fourth station is K-DST, “The Dust,” whose DJ, Tommy “The Nightmare” Smith, spins classic rock such as Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets to Paradise.”
The fifth station, K-Jah Radio West, plays dancehall, raga, reggae, and dub tunes spun by two DJs, Marshall Peter & Johnny Lawton. “Chase the Devil” by Max Romeo & The Upsetters is the sample tune.
CSR, the sixth station, favors new jack swing and modern soul chosen by Philip “PM” Michaels. Bel Biv Devoe’s “Poison” is the station’s sample track. The seventh station offers a considerable change of pace with Radio:X, the self described home of modern rock voiced by Sage, a female DJ. Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing In the Name” is the sample track.
The eighth station is K-Rose, a country station whose DJ, Marybeth Maybell, spins tunes such as the sample track, “Crazy,” by Willie Nelson. The ninth station, Radio Los Santos, features DJ Julio G who fits the west coast hip hop station’s attitude. The late, great 2Pac’s “I Don’t Give a F***” is the sample tune. The last station on the site is SF-UR, a house music station whose DJ, Hans Oberlander, is an excitable fellow. Raze’s “Break 4 Love” is the station’s sample tune.
Just below the stereo on the site is an alcove with a sleeve for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that, when clicked, offers additional details on the upcoming double CD soundtrack for the game. The 2 CD set will be released by Interscope Records and should be on store shelves November 23rd.
The section also encourages readers to return this Monday for a full tracklist of the 2-CD set. As for the actual game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 2 on October 26.
