Vladivostok FM is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City. The station is named after the Russian city of Vladivostok.

In Episodes From Liberty City, the new playlist can be heard inside the Bahama Mamas Club. When Grand Theft Auto IV is updated by the downloadable version of The Ballad of Gay Tony, the station alternates between a program of World Beat/Eastern European pop music and one of western European dance music. Vladivostok FM is based on WNYZ-LP in New York City.

Trivia

  • Vladivostok FM is the favorite radio station of all notable members of the Russian Mafia, namely Dimitri Rascalov, Vladimir Glebov and Mikhail Faustin, with Dimitri claiming that it plays the music that he and Mikhail Faustin used to listen to back in "the Old Country", as they were once stationed in Vladivostok while they were in the Navy. The station plays inside Mikhail Faustin's Mansion, and is also the favourite radio station of Niko Bellic, Michelle and Oleg Minkov.
  • It is the first radio station that the player hears in GTA IV, as it is playing in Roman's Taxi.
  • This station plays inside Perestroika and Comrades Bar
  • DJ Paul mispronunces Guetta's name when he says "Straight out of France this is David "Gu-wetta"
  • In EFLC, Vladivostok FM is commercial free and is a mix station. However in the original GTA IV it is a dynamic station, so it plays commercials and Weazel News.
  • The file containing the new EFLC mix is listed as "EuroDANCE FM", which may suggest that at one point the mix was meant to appear on its own station, rather than on Vladivostok FM.
