A new station featuring a mixture of 70s-80s soft rock, dream pop and bedroom pop (Think LSRR/Emotion 98.3 meets Radio Mirror Park/The psychedelic bits of Blonded) as well as a revised tracklist for a quiet storm station I did back in December.
TUNES OVER EASY.
"Putting the D in DIY, Danny G brings to the city an assortment of early day soft rock and dream pop as well as modern day lo-fi bedroom rarities."
LOCATION: Northern San Andreas
GENRE: Soft rock, indie rock, rock ballads, synthpop, easy listening, chillwave, dream pop, hypnagogic pop.
HOST: Danny G. A self-described "travelling musician" and "kindred spirit for all drifters", Danny often provides insight into his live performances, performing unlicensed cover tracks, unintentionally inciting riots within the venues and running away from record company "ambulance chasers", and wonders in amazement as to how he is still able to run his own show.
"Music combining the idealism of the 50s, the analogue feel of the 80s, and the extreme political correctness of our generation. You're on Tunes Over Easy (You want coffee with that?)." - Station ID.
"Music to feel nostalgic and sad to... even though you probably never lived through that tough of a life. You're on Tunes Over Easy 103.3 (What's the special today?)." - Station ID 2.
"And a very good morning to all of you, North SA and the state of Rosemary. Danny G here, ready to play and broadcast some fresh and classic lo-fi tunes straight to the hills. Try not to get yourselves killed on the way to work. I oughtta know, I've seen that sh*t in my travels, man." - Danny G on mornings.
"I remember one time playing a gig down at Tequi-la-la in LS, these guys from Mirror Park that were playin' before me got so stone drunk they pissed all over the stage equipment and amplified the feedback so loud the front row audience shat their pants, no kidding. The LSPD came and broke the party up soon after, beat the sh*t out of some attendees and sent all of us home. I didn't even get a chance to play. F*ck LSPD and f*ck Los Santos, dude. They're nothing but bad vibes." - One of Danny G's anecdotes.
"I remember covering this track at Superstar Cafe in downtown San Fierro, and for some reason everyone started moshing and destroying furniture. Both the fire department and the coroner had to be called." - Danny G introducing "Midnight Cruiser" by Steely Dan.
"This was sampled in a Kendrick track, I'm serious. And somehow I'm still getting cease-and-desist orders for not paying royalties for my covers? This industry is crooked, brother." - Danny G introducing "Meet The Frownies" by Mr Twin Sister.
"He used to be in Roxy Music, here's some Bryan Ferry for the road, dudes." - Danny G introducing "Slave To Love" by Bryan Ferry.
"Part shoegaze, part chillwave, part broken dreams and teenage innocence, here's Beach House. Jesus H, I'm tearing up again." - Danny G introducing "Wildflower" by Beach House.

GENRE: Adult Contemporary, R&B, Post-disco, Soul, New Jack Swing, Quiet Storm
HOST: Tina Jane
. Returning to the radio biz after a long hiatus since her time in Vice City, Tina has since settled in San Fierro, playing classic 70s-90s quiet storm from her studio in Kiev Hill. She appears to still harbour a deep-seated hatred towards cults, especially towards the Epsilon Program, calling them "money-sucking goofies who go around painting things baby blue".
"(Oooh yeah, baby. Faster, pussycat, faster-) *record scratch* Anymore of that and we'll be taken off air! S.F.F.L., the station for lovers, by lovers!" - Station ID.
"It began in Vice City in 1982... *sniffing sounds* And now it's back in San Fierro with the same old format, with yours truly, Tina Jane! San Fierro For Lovers (You wanna get down, baby?)." - Station ID 2.
"I love you, San Fierro! And you could love me the way we did back in the day in Vice... till '85 though, we had a falling out with the radio director over financial matters, but love me anyhow!"
- Tina Jane, on the eventual fate of VCFL
"Just the other day another goofy from the damn Epsilon Club rang me up in the studio tellin' me all sorts of nonsense about paradigms and what not! Baby, the only club I'll ever go to is the Malibu Club, and my answer's same as it was back in '84! I ain't painting my studio baby blue, and I sure as hell don't wanna say 'Kifflom' to nobody!"
- Tina Jane on the Epsilon Program
"This is Tina Jane, and you're gonna feel somethin' hard and solid tonight! Time to whip up an Ashford & Simpson joint!" - Tina Jane introducing "Solid" by Ashford & Simpson.
"This goes out to all the celibate brothers and sisters out there! It's Wishing On A Star by Rose Royce!" - Tina Jane introducing "Wishing On A Star" by Rose Royce.
"Straight out from her solo album, it's Lauryn Hill! Still sleepin' on that Fugees reunion though!" - Tina Jane introducing "Ex-Factor" by Lauryn Hill.
"We got a rare groove in this studio, SFFL exclusive track!" - Tina Jane introducing "Storm" by Rare Silk.
