The station is unusual in its choice of DJ, "a computer" (as credited by both the end-game credits and manual) which speaks in a synthesized voice of a female. Often times, the lines delivered by the computer are seemingly philosophical, but appear to be more nonsensical, if not meaningless. The computer DJ often talks about the subject "Life is actually a game" and other similar topics talking about the relationship between computers and life - and this is an obvious reference to the player being in the 'world' of Grand Theft Auto, and some of the things the presenter says may be Rockstar joking, suggesting that the player should interact with the real world too, not just GTA.

The Journey is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto IV. The station plays ambient and chillout music.

Description Edit

The station is unusual, as its DJ is actually a Fruit Computer, which speaks in a synthesized voice of a female. The "DJ" often mentions that "Life is actually a game", and discusses, amongst other topics, the "relationship between computers and life". The computer's dialogue includes statements which appear to be philosophical, but are instead nonsensical and meaningless.

In Episodes from Liberty City, The Journey does not appear and is instead replaced by another ambient radio station, Self-Actualization FM.
