- While the station caters to the Mexican/American population of Los Santos, not all the music featured is from Mexico. For example, La Sonora Dinamita are actually Colombian, La Vida Boheme are Venezuelan and Los Ángeles Negros are Chilean-Mexican. Regardless, these musicians and their songs were highly popular in Mexico.

- This is the third Latin music station featured in the GTA series, the first being Espantoso (Latin jazz, Cuban Son and Salsa) in GTA VC and VCS, and San Juan Sounds (Reggaeton, Merengue, Latin Hip-hop and Bachata) in GTA IV and TBoGT.
- This is the first station to feature songs made by Mexican and some South American artists.
- East Los FM is based on a real radio station called Que Buena 96.1 FM.
- Both DJ's have a song of them featured in the playlist, El Tatuado by Don Cheto and Es-toy by Camilo Lara.
- The stations music in every cab might be a hint that most of the taxi drivers are Latinos and that it is a common thought that all taxi drivers listen to music like this.
