"Crime rate is exploding! The city is collapsing! Pollution is raging! And people are fighting, grown men are weeping!... and they say we are the crazy ones?"
— Lithium FM

Lithium FM is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto 2, it is hosted by Spaz Funbags (voiced by Fred Newman) and plays techno, classic soul, dance and Christian pop.

Description

Lithium can only be heard in the Downtown District. It plays a random array of music, consisting of techno/dance music, Christian pop and classic soul. The mixed genre nature of its playlist is a reference to its mentally unstable owners, the Loonies gang, which have this station as their favorite.

Lithium is hosted by Spaz Funbags, voiced by actor Fred Newman. Spaz, like the Loonies, seems to be schizophrenic, and speaks in varying voices and pitches, making eccentric dialogues. However, he seems genuinely angry when the audio machine chews the record Tammy Boness & The Swingin' Mammaries' "The Diner", cutting the song short.

After the mission "Radio Za-Za!", the Zaibatsu Corporation is stuck listening to this station, because Futuro FM's building in the Downtown District is gone.
