As the final marketing push for the imminent release of GTA IV spins up to speed, Rockstar is giving out more and more media of the game. The latest is an update to the online snippets of the in-game radio stations. There are now a total of 4 clips online, IF99, a funk station, Vladivostok, an eastern European station, K109, a disco station, and course WKTT. WKTT, which is the station embedded to the right, is an obvious parody of right-wing talk radio, and is definitely worth a listen for those with good senses of humor. The embedded player will cycle through all four stations as each one ends, so you can listen to them all if you like. The GTA IV site itself has spaces for at least eighteen different stations so we're definitely going to be seeing the trademark variety of music present in the past GTA games.

Haha!! Funny quote from the WKTT station:
"I'm married to two women - America and my wife...and I won't go down south on either of them."
I love the tongue in cheek stuff Rockstar does with the radio stations.

Hahaha I expected no less from Rockstar, I love their variety of music and the talk radio always makes me burst out laughing even in the middle of tense missions.
@Matthew: You don't have to worry about it spoiling your experience, it's just a couple short intro clips to 4 stations. There will be at least 14 more stations with loads of content still :D

I hated radio stations in San Andreas.
I would rather pick the music.

Vice city had the best music. GTA3 had the best talk station, though. San Andreas sucked all around.

I thought that GTAIV was going to incorporate Last.fm accounts/profiles/whatevers into the game? Is that still going to happen?

Funny how real, actual left-wing talk radio is just as outrageous as this parody of right-wing talk radio.
3-24-2008 @ 8:46AM
Oh man, that's just brilliant. The San Andreas radio is tough to top. But this looks on-point.

@Adam: You're a real douche huh. How's that working out for you?
