* Radio Los Santos may be based on real life L.A. radio stations KPWR 105.9 (Power 106) and 93.5 KDAY. The SA version of RLS may likely be based on KDAY as Julio G was a former DJ on the station.

  +
* When 2Pac's "I Don't Give a Fuck" plays, Julio sometimes mentions that he is scared about playing the song due to its heavy use of profanity as well as political lyrical content and he'll likely get a fine for playing it.
  +
* Chronologically, there are some errors made in the dialog. N.W.A broke up in 1991 yet Julio G comments on their "Alwayz Into Somethin'" song as if they are still together. This is further contradicted by the fact that Dr. Dre's songs "Nuthin' But a G Thang" and "Fuck wit Dre Day" from his album, ''The Chronic'', appear. Both were recorded when Dr. Dre left N.W.A and the latter is a diss aimed at former N.W.A member, Eazy-E.
  +
*Ice Cube's "Check Yo Self" is played in its edited radio version, which is strange because every other song on the radio appears in explicit/original form, including other singles that had radio versions in real life (such as Ice Cube's "It Was a Good Day" and Dr. Dre's "Dre Day"). This is likely because The Message remix was considerably more popular.

This is the favorite radio station of the Grove Street Families and Ryder. The station DJ is Julio G. Rapper B-Real from Cypress Hill makes an appearance on the station and so does Madd Dogg who is voiced by Ice-T.
