Tuff Gong Radio is a reggae radio station in Grand Theft Auto IV hosted by Carl Bradshaw.

Description

Tuff Gong Radio is considered a more traditional counterpart to Massive B Soundsystem. Tuff Gong Radio plays traditional reggae, whereas Massive B Soundsystem plays dancehall, which is a commercialised version of reggae.

The station's name and playlist are a tribute to 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 most prominent work was released on. The "Tuff Gong" name itself was 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.
