"New wave steamrolled onto Vice City's music charts in the early 80s, thanks in large part to the efforts of celebrated radio personality, Adam First. This station features revolutionary acts broken by Wave 103 such as Flock of Seagulls and Blondie."
― GTA Vice City Website

  • The name of the station is a reference to the radio station Wave 102 in Dundee, Scotland, where DMA Design (which subsequently became Rockstar North) was founded, and to the New Wave music on the station's playlist. There is another radio station named Wave 105 which broadcasts in Southampton, England.
  • Wave 103 is one of two preferred radio stations tuned in by the Streetwannabes, the other station being Flash FM. Wave 103 can be heard after Tommy or Vic carjacks their gang vehicles.
  • The Wave 103 CD included in the European release of the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Official Soundtrack Box Set contains the song "Japanese Boy" by Aneka, despite the fact this song actually appears on Flash FM in the game.
  • The version of "Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo that is played on the station is actually the instrumental "Midnight Mix" of the song.
  • "I Ran (So Far Away)" by A Flock of Seagulls was featured in the second trailer for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and the Vice City trailer for the Xbox version of Grand Theft Auto Double Pack.
  • "Don't Go" by Yazoo plays in the background at the beginning of the cutscene of the mission White Lies, as well as inside the White Stallionz Bar during the mission The Bum Deal.
  • In the 10th Anniversary Edition of GTA Vice City, this is the only radio station to feature all of the songs from the original game.
