Tuff Gong Radio
|Appearance(s):||Grand Theft Auto IV|
The station's existence is an apparent nod to the late Bob Marley, a prominent reggae artist. Indeed, the station's playlist consists of nothing but music from Bob Marley & The Wailers, as well as Bob Marley's two sons, Stephen Marley and Damian Marley. The station's name and logo comes from the record label founded by Bob Marley & The Wailers in 1970, which their prominent work is released on. The "Tuff Gong" name itself is a nickname of Bob Marley's, which derived from that of Rastafari leader Leonard "The Gong" Howell.
As RamJam FM replaces Tuff Gong Radio and Massive B Soundsystem in Episodes from Liberty City, the station is not available in the compilation's version of The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.
