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 (but is referred to as Captain Loggins in-game). 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 poster of Los Santos Rock Radio on his bedroom wall. However, ironically, he doesn't like the station because of what he calls the "old people music".
- This is Michael De Santa's and Patrick McReary's favorite radio station.
- It was the second radio station to be discovered by the GTA community.
- "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. The possible reason for this is that "Take the Money and Run" describes a stereotypical heist/robbery and most people would assume that this is the more likely choice of song in a GTA game.
- "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 makes Los Santos Rock Radio the station which has the most songs in trailers.
- This could possibly be Trevor Philips' second favourite radio station, as it plays inside his trailer, his meth lab and Floyd's Apartment.
- This radio station can be heard playing in the Fire Station around Los Santos.
- Michael De Santa listens to the song "I Don't Care Anymore" by Phil Collins on his iFruit phone during the mission Father/Son.
- Six of the station's songs play according to what happens in the story. "If You Leave Me Now" by Chicago automatically plays in Trevor's truck when Trevor is forced to return Patricia Madrazo to her husband in "Monkey Business". "I Wouldn't Want To Be Like You" by the Alan Parsons Project plays when Trevor kidnaps Devin Weston in "The Third Way". "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. "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. "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.
- If Michael chooses to abandon the Epsilom Program convoy during Unknowing the Truth, "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)" by Elton John will play once the mission is completed.
- Occasionally, Loggins monologues about the '80s in between songs and finishes by saying "I'm alright". This most likely was meant to queue 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.
- This radio station plays during all Offroad Races.
- Songs from this station will play in certain Ammu-Nation stores.
- KGBH, a radio station in Grand Theft Auto 2 that also plays Classic Rock.
