Non-Stop-Pop FM could be based on KOST 103.5, which is also adult contemporary radio station, 102.7 KIIS FM and 104.3 MY FM, both of which play pop music from the '90s to present day.
Songs from this station play in all Ponsonbys clothing stores (no commercials).
Amerie's "1 Thing" was also featured in Saints Row 2, another open world game widely known as a GTA Clone by some players. The cut songs "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" and "Me & U" were also featured in Saints Row 2.
This might be Tracey De Santa's favourite radio station, as it always plays when you enter her Issi.
However, this is the default radio station for the Issi.
Sound files for Cara's recording still have intros for the song "The Time Is Now" by Moloko, suggesting it was cut late in development.
This is the second time that "Me & U" by Cassie has been removed from the final version of a GTA soundtrack, after The Vibe 98.8 in GTA IV.
This is the fourth time a Hall & Oates song appeared in GTA. The first song, "Out of Touch", was featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
The song "Work (Freemasons remix)" by Kelly Rowland appears to be playing inside the Dignity during the mission Daddy's Little Girl.
The inclusion of pop songs from the 80's was due to the fact that there was meant to be an 80's pop station in the game. Over the course of the development, the 80's station was merged with Non-Stop-Pop FM, leading to numerous style changes to the station. It originally started as a mainstream pop radio station, then into dance-pop/house radio station, switching over to adult contemporary, leading to the inclusion of songs from the 90's, before settling on a contemporary pop mix radio station.
Stardust's "Music Sounds Better With You" is played in its shortened radio edit.
Despite claiming that it plays music from today, the most recent song featured on this station is Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)" which was released in 2010. Had Cobra Starship's "You Make Me Feel..." not been cut from the final version, it would be the most recent out of all of the songs in this station, being released in 2011.
A rare glitch can happen when driving south towards Vinewood Boulevard, where a song will play for about 2 seconds, then will change to be another song, currently this is the only known radio station to do this.
