  • This is Trevor Philips' favorite radio station, as it is the default station for his Bodhi.
  • This is the favourite radio station of the Blaine County chapter of The Lost MC.
  • This station appears to be a successor to Radio X, though Channel X plays punk music as opposed to the grunge of Radio X.
    • This is further proven by one of the station's stingers, which says "We've been Radio X for too long!", implying that the station was previously known as Radio X.
  • The logo of the station looks somewhat similar to Television X, an adult television channel in the United Kingdom.
  • Songs from this station play in Ammu-Nation stores with shooting ranges in Pillbox Hill, Cypress Flats & Little Seoul, as well as inside the Tequi-la-la & tattoo parlors.
  • Liberty City Hardcore is indirectly referenced by Keith as "the punk scene in Liberty City."
  • A British lady's accent can be heard during one of the station's stingers, serving as a reference to the London punk scene.
  • It's possible that the station is based on 91X, which plays hard rock and has a similar name and frequency (91.1). 91X was also one of the first stations in California to play punk music. However, 91X is a border blaster station based in Tijuana, Mexico, and doesn't get very good reception in Los Angeles.
    • Another possible influence is Q103.3, another hard rock station broadcasting from Temecula, CA.
  • The song "My War" by Black Flag will always play after Trevor enters his Bodhi and loses the cops after killing Steve Haines in The Third Way.
    • Interestingly, in some intros, Keith would introduce "My War" with "Black Flag, My War. I know these guys. You're not my friend!", a reference to the on-going conflict with Black Flag after he left the band.
