Vice City FM is a radio station exclusive to the disc version of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City. The station plays 1980s pop music and is hosted by Fernando Martinez, who was the DJ on Emotion 98.3 in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The station is named after the city of Vice City, and replaces The Vibe 98.8 from Grand Theft Auto IV.

  • There are several recognizable references to the events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, including the phrase "ate your cassette deck", which is a reference to the mission Supply & Demand for Ricardo Diaz.
  • Evan Moss sings along to "Maneater" by Hall & Oates in the opening cutscene of the mission Bang Bang. This is the only time the player can hear the song in the game if they own the downloadable version, as Vice City FM only appears in the disc version, though it is available on the Steam download for PC.
  • The main verse/chorus of "Maneater" was sampled by rapper Royce Da 5'9 in his song "We're Live (Danger)", which was featured in GTA III's hip-hop station Game FM.
  • "The Look" by Roxette plays in one of The Ballad of Gay Tony trailers.
    • This song, along "Love Changes (Everything)" by Climie Fisher and "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, can also be heard during the strip club private dances.
  • This is one of Tony Prince's favorite radio stations, as it's one of the default radio stations of Tony's Schafter, alongside K109 The Studio.
  • On an in-game poster advertising the radio station, there is a list of bands featured. Interestingly "Go West" and "Tears For Fears" are listed even though none of their songs appear on the station. In addition, no song titles from the two bands are seen in the file "american.gxt", but DJ commentary in the station's files suggests that Go West's "We Close Our Eyes" and Tears For Fears' "Head Over Heels" would have appeared on the station.
  • Michael Jackson's "Another Part of Me" can be briefly heard in one of the stingers for the station.
  • The style of writing on the station logo is the exact same as the logo used on the front of the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City instruction manual.
  • One of the cut songs, "Carribean Queen" by Billy Ocean, appeared in Scarface: The World Is Yours, a GTA Clone.
