Los Santos Rock Radio (102.3) is a radio station that plays classic rock and pop rock in Grand Theft Auto V, and is hosted by Kenny Loggins. Loggins also lends his singing voice to the radio sting as well as one of his hit songs. The whole radio station seems to be based on a cruise or a boating journey which may be a reference to the yacht rock genre which Loggins, Michael McDonald, and Robbie Dupree are a part of.

- Jimmy De Santa has a Los Santos Rock Radio poster on his bedroom wall, though he doesn't appear to like the station.
- This is the favourite radio station of Michael De Santa and Patrick McReary, and possibly the second favourite radio station of Trevor Philips, as it plays inside his trailer, his meth lab and Floyd's Apartment.
- "Rock'n Me" by the Steve Miller Band is incorrectly listed as "Take the Money and Run", another song by the Steve Miller Band, in the game's digital manual. This has been fixed in the credits for the enhanced version.
- Three songs from this starion appear in three of the game's trailers: "Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake" by The Small Faces was featured in the first GTA V trailer, "Radio Ga Ga" by Queen was featured in Michael's trailer, and "I Can't Wait" by Stevie Nicks was featured in the Xbox 360 trailer.
- This radio station plays in the Fire Stations around Los Santos, and can also be heard during Offroad Races, at certain Ammu-Nation stores and at the Mr. Spoke Bike Rental stand.
- Nine of the station's songs play according to what happens in the story. Michael listens to the song "I Don't Care Anymore" by Phil Collins on his iFruit phone during the mission, Father/Son. "All the Things She Said" by Simple Minds will play after Michael saves Jimmy and catches Franklin when he jumps off the yacht in Father/Son, "What a Fool Believes" by the Doobie Brothers will briefly play during "Crystal Maze" before Trevor angrily changes the station, "Radio Ga Ga" by Queen will play after Michael has escaped from the police in Dead Man Walking, "Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake" by the Small Faces will play after Franklin assassinates Jackson Skinner in The Vice Assassination, "Night Moves" by Bob Seger will play when the player returns to Sandy Shores from Paleto Bay as Michael or Trevor in the Paleto Score Setup, "If You Leave Me Now" by Chicago automatically plays in Trevor's Bodhi when he is forced to return Patricia Madrazo to her husband in Monkey Business, "Dirty White Boy" by Foreigner plays following completion of The Ballad of Rocco, "Hollywood Nights" by Bob Seger will play when the three characters drive back to Michael's mansion from Blaine County in the subtle approach for The Big Score, and "I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You" by the Alan Parsons Project plays when Trevor kidnaps Devin Weston in The Third Way.
- If Michael chooses to abandon the Epsilon Program convoy during Unknowing the Truth, "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" by Elton John will play once the mission is completed.
- In the enhanced version during the EMP setup mission for the Humane Raid in Grand Theft Auto Online, "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins will play in the Hydra when the player takes off from the aircraft carrier and destroys the pursuing jets. This is a possible reference to the movie Top Gun.
- Occasionally, Loggins monologues about the 1980s in between songs and finishes by saying "I'm alright". This most likely was meant to cue his song, "I'm Alright", before it was removed from the station.
- At the end of the film, Meltdown, "The Breakup Song" by the Greg Kihn Band plays.
- When "I'm Free (Heaven Helps the Man)" begins to play, there is a chance that Loggins will say he is playing, "'I'm Free', by me", as he is the singer.
- Los Santos Rock Radio may be loosely based on 100.3 The Sound or 95.5 KLOS, which are classic rock stations located in Los Angeles.
- On rare occasions on a Saturday, Loggins may introduce "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" by Elton John differently.
- KGBH - a radio station in GTA2 which also plays classic rock.
- K-DST - a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas which also plays classic rock.
- Liberty Rock Radio - a radio station in Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes which also plays classic rock.
