Vladivostok FM is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City. It is named after the Russian city Vladivostok. The station can be heard playing inside Perestroika and Comrades Bar in Hove Beach.
In Episodes From Liberty City, the new playlist can be heard inside the Bahama Mamas Club. When Grand Theft Auto IV is updated by the downloadable version of The Ballad of Gay Tony, the station alternates between a program of World Beat/Eastern European pop music and one of western European dance music. Vladivostok FM is based of real life New York City's WNYZ-LP.
'DJ: Ruslana Lyzhychko , a Ukraininan pop singer. She has been performing since 1998 and her biggest hit "Wild Dances", made in 2004, is played on the station. In 2008, the same year she provided her voice for GTA IV, she recorded a new album called "Wild Energy", which features prominent American artists T-Pain and Missy Elliott. In the original GTA IV, the radio station plays almost entirely Russian music (with the exception of Ruslana herself, from the Ukraine) in a wide variety of genres.

DJ Paul is an actual London, England club DJ and has been spinning since 2001.

- Vladivostok FM is the favorite radio station of all notable members of the Russian Mafia. It's always turned on in Vlad Glebov's Comrades Bar and Dimitri Rascalov says, that this is the music he and Mikhail Faustin used to listen to, back in the Old Country (the only song that would chronologically apply is the one by Kino). Coincidentally, they were once stationed in Vladivostok while they were in the Navy.
- It's the first radio station that the player hears in GTA IV, as it is playing in Roman's Car as the default radio station.
- DJ Paul mispronunces Guetta's name when he says "Straight out of France this is David "Gu-wetta"
- Although it carries the same name as Vladivostok in TBoGT, it doesn't play any Russian music but Western European dance music instead.
- Vladivostok FM is Niko Bellic's, Dimitri Rascalov's Mikhail Faustin's Vladimir Glebov's and Michelle's favorite radio station.
- In GTA: EFLC, Vladivostok FM is commercial free. However in the original GTA IV it plays commercials and Weazel News.
- Vladivostok, as stated earlier, is a real town located in Russia, near North Korea and China.
- As mentioned before, Vladivostok FM plays in Comrades Bar and the Perestroika Russian Entertainment Club in Hove Beach and it also plays in Mikhail Faustin's mansion in cutscenes as Vladivostok FM are Faustin and Dimitri's favorite radio station. In EFLC, it plays in the Bahama Mamas nightclub, a club that was open only for TBoGT as the club in GTA IV wasn't the same as it was in the Episodes from Liberty City. However, in TLAD, the radio station that can be heard playing from inside the club is from The Beat as you can hear it from the outside of the club. Bahama Mamas is probably the only place in TBoGT where Vladivostok FM can be heard playing from.
- While not being a member of the Russian Mafia, Oleg Minkov listens to this radio station, as when you kill him and hijack his Sentinel Vladivostok FM will play.
- Sometimes you can hear a prerecorded message of Vladivostok FM that says "Direct from Hove Beach" but then DJ Paul says that the radio station is on Bahamas Mamas.
