'''Radio Los Santos''' (106.1) is a [[Radio Stations in GTA San Andreas|radio station]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it plays [[wp:West Coast hip hop|West Coast hip hop]] from the late 1980s and early 1990s - primarily the "Gangsta Rap" sub-genre. The station, evidently, broadcasts from [[Los Santos]]. This station was released in a joint album with [[Playback FM]] as part of the 8-Disc soundtrack. The station also includes references to "carjacking on the rise", Los Santos gang violence, and the Los Santos drug/crack problem - being that these activities play a key element of the gameplay and the story. 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. Other appearances on the radio station includes [[OG Loc]] and [[Big Smoke]] once the first chapter (Los Santos missions) has been completed. In Grand Theft Auto V it plays modern hip hop and is hosted by real life radio host [[Kurt Alexander|Big Boy]] - host of Big Boy's neighborhood in Los Angeles and voice of [[Big Bear]] in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Grand Theft Auto V website

Radio Los Santos (106.1) is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it plays West Coast hip hop from the late 1980s and early 1990s - primarily the "gangsta rap" sub-genre. The station, evidently, broadcasts from Los Santos. This station was released in a joint album with Playback FM as part of the 8-Disc soundtrack. The station also includes references to "carjacking on the rise", Los Santos gang violence, and the Los Santos drug/crack problem - being that these activities play a key element of the gameplay and the story. 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. Other appearances on the radio station includes OG Loc and Big Smoke once the first chapter (Los Santos missions) has been completed. In Grand Theft Auto V it plays modern hip hop and is hosted by real life radio host Big Boy - host of Big Boy's neighborhood in Los Angeles and voice of Big Bear in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Deleted Songs Edit

GTA V's trackID.gxt2 database reveals more songs were planned to appear on the station but were not included in the final version.

TriviaEdit

  • 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. GTA V's version is likely based on Power 106 as Big Boy is still a radio host for the station (with his segment Big Boy's Neighborhood).
  • During Eazy-E's song, Julio mentions Compton instead of its in-game fictional counterpart Ganton.
  • 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 radio station can be heard in any wardrobe in safehouses and also in any mod garage. (If the player consistently listens to it)
  • Radio Los Santos is the default radio station in the Greenwood. However, Sweet's Greenwood does not play Radio Los Santos when entered.
  • If CJ wears clothes representing Grove Street Families, sometimes when idling he would rap to Dr. Dre's "Nuthin' But a G Thang".
  • Jay Rock's "Hood Gone Love It" is used in Franklin Clinton's trailer.
  • The GTA V version of the station noticeably doesn't exclusively feature West Coast rappers, as it also features some notable rappers from the South (Gucci Mane, Future, etc), the Midwest (Freddie Gibbs) and East Coast (A$AP Rocky).
  • It is likely that the station was founded between 1988. This is because of the GTA V website's quote stating that it has been 'blazin' hip hop for 25 years'.
  • This is Franklin Clinton's favorite radio station.
  • Radio Los Santos is one of the only three radio stations ever to cross universes, the other being WCTR and Head Radio, although Head Radio crossed universes three times as opposed to WCTR and RLS which only crossed universes two times.
  • In GTA V, the host mentions that there was recently a new $100 bill being made. This is a reference to how in real life, the US is creating a new version of the $100 bill.
