RADIO STATION
Massive B Soundsystem 96.9
MassiveBSoundsystem
Location: Beechwood City, Broker, Liberty City
Genre: Dancehall
Appearance(s): Grand Theft Auto IV
Host: Bobby Konders
Massive B Soundsystem 96.9 is a dancehall radio station in Grand Theft Auto IV, hosted by Bobby Konders. It is said the radio station was founded in 1998 just as Mavado's "Real McKoy" begins playing. Bobby Konders states the radio station has been "ten years strong."

Maybe a coincidence, Konders' real life record group Massive B sound system was ten years old, in 2008, too.

Description

Massive B Soundsystem serves as a more commercialized counterpart to the more traditional Tuff Gong Radio, which plays purely reggae music, which dancehall music originates from.

The station is distinctive in that Konders radio edits songs played on the station, and will occasionally insert sound effects, echos and even his own voice into certain music tracks. In addition, Konders will occasionally act as a socially conscious voice of Liberty City and an activist, encouraging listeners to be more proactive towards the plight of the city.

As RamJam FM replaces Massive B Soundsystem and Tuff Gong Radio in Episodes from Liberty City, the station is not available in the compilation's version (disc) of The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Track list

Notes

  • Massive B Soundsystem is based on a real radio station of the same name and logo also hosted by Bobby Konders. They have a segment Saturdays and Sundays, around midnight on Hot 97 (on which another GTA IV radio station, The Beat 102.7 is based on).

Trivia

  • When Niko asks a taxi driver to put the radio on Massive B, he says "96.6" instead of 96.9.
  • Little Jacob likes this station. In friendship activities, he will say that he loves this station.
  • This radio station can be heard by default when entering Roman's Cavalcade, though sometimes Classics or Tuff Gong Radio can be heard instead.
