Not to be confused with Flashback FM
"The mainstream never popped like it did in the early 1980s.. And there never was a radio host like Toni. She bopped her way into Vice City's heart to the tune of classic songs by Hall & Oates, Laura Branigan and many others."
― GTA Vice City Website

Flash FM is a Vice City radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The station plays contemporary pop music and is hosted by Toni and Teri in 1984, with Toni becoming the sole DJ by 1986 following Teri's departure from the station.

Flash FM Vice City Stories


  • Toni often makes off-handed and veiled sexual comments, a reference to the fact that "flash" is a term used to describe someone who shows off revealing parts of their body briefly.
  • During the beginning of the song "Life's What You Make It" Toni refers in her anecdote to a famous british band, but "can't say who". This is a reference to Duran Duran and the fact that on Flashback FM in all versions of Grand Theft Auto III the line "This song reminds me of waking up on the Duran Duran tourbus" was edited to mute the mention of the band's name.
  • "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson will automatically hear when the player enters Ken Rosenberg's Admiral or pink Faggio in the Introduction. In the mobile version, this is replaced by "Self Control" by Laura Branigan.
  • "Self Control" by Laura Branigan is featured in the iOS and Android trailer for GTA:Vice City.
  • "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles plays in the background during the Commodore 64-inspired logo sequence seen when the game loads.
  • Flash FM is the favourite radio station of the Haitians, alongside Fever 105, which can be heard after the player carjacks their Voodoo. It is also one of the favourite stations of the Streetwannabes.
  • For an unknown reason, "Japanese Boy" by Aneka was not included on the Flash FM soundtrack CD, but instead appears on the Wave 103 CD.
  • One of the imaging singers in the Vice City Stories rendition is Conor & Jay band member Julie Wemyss, who was also one of the main composers for several of the music featured within the original Grand Theft Auto games. She also provides vocals to some original songs in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto III.
  • In Grand Theft Auto Online, during the 2014 Halloween Weekend Event, a t-shirt with the logo of the radio station was available through Crate Drops. Later, during the Cunning Stunts update, a Flash FM cap is now available to buy for $1895 at any clothing store.
