'''Flashback FM,''' also known as '''Flashback 95.6''', is a radio station in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]. In GTA III, the DJ is [[Toni]], who also appeared as a DJ in [[Flash FM]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]. However, in GTA Liberty City Stories, the DJ is [[Reni Wassulmaier]], a character who also appeared in GTA Vice City Stories.
 
   
Both incarnations of this station play music almost exclusively by Giorgio Moroder. The GTA III playlist is notable as all of the songs featured are from the Scarface movie soundtrack, a film that has been cited by the developers as a significant influence on the game. Toni's name is possibly a further reference to the movie, as the lead character's name is Tony Montana.

'''Flashback FM''' is a radio station featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'', and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]''. In 1998 (the setting for ''Liberty City Stories'') the station is hosted by [[Reni Wassulmaier]]. However, by 2001 (the setting for ''GTA III'') she has been replaced by [[Toni]].
   
In GTA III it has also been noted that on some if not all versions of the game Toni is saying "This reminds me of waking up on the Duran Duran tour bus' and just as she begins to say 'Duran Duran' the audio cuts out for a second and picks up again at 'Tour Bus', this could just be a bug, but chances are. It was removed on purpose.
