I can remember whilst playing GTAIV, there was a radio station that played very old jazz music. I loved that kind of music, it really suited the "driving through the city at night" kind of style. When the episodes of Liberty City were released, I was surprised that they had gotten rid of the radio station. When V/Online was released, I though perhaps they may have added Jazz... well, I was wrong. So, who here thinks it would be a good idea to have Jazz music back on the radio?

Yeah. That'd be cool. 

 

Although at night when cruising I listen to Space 103.2 with Bootsy Collins, uhh, bobble

This was a classic track played on JNR... One of the best in my opinion.

I'm saying there "should be" alternative stations, other than what they have now, mainly because what they have now in the game is really great stuff.

However, my personal tastes in music include Jazz, Classical, Ambient, New Age, and that weird Dead Can Dance goth style, as much as I listen to Rock, Hard/Classic Rock, Punk, Alternative, D&B, Punk, or whatever.

I'm a musician, so all genres have appeal, and if they were ever to include more obscure forms on the radio, I'd personally dig it, big time.

What Rockstar should have implemented is being able to add custom music to the game, similar to Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories for the PSP. That way, anyone can listen to what they like!

ME. I loved the jazz in 4. I didn't like they took the station out for TBOGT and TLAD.

I liked tuning into the Jazz station for GTA IV as it was pretty relaxing and felt perfect alongside Liberty City , so i'd welcome a return in GTA V.

I loved it. Just cruising around Liberty City listening to Jazz. Was one of my favorite things. It was also how I learned most of the map off by heart!

I wouldn't mind classical music either. For now, I just tune in to Worldwide FM, which is my favorite radio station in GTA V/Online.

I would like to see the option to make a custom radio, with 10 or 12 musics that we enjoy, but I don't know if this is possible.

It's obviously not that hard for Rockstar to do. StudioLiverpool, creators of WipEout, made an option where you can add custom music to the game whilst racing. Who's to say Rockstar can't do it either?

I hoard music to the point of getting Chinese New Years festival music and I'm not even Chinese. I always wanted to get into classical music and while I found a few songs and listened to them, I never considered myself a classical music lover. It didn't have the right feel to it. When I played Saints Row 2 and saw how many classical songs there was, I was thrilled. It was that game that made my 200-some classical music folder what it is now. If R* would include more diverse stuff than their typical radios (GTA 3 had classical), I would love it. I know many love FlyLo FM but I can't listen to that, so I'm sort of going against my own proposal...

The option to make our own radio station with no ads would be the best musical DLC we could get.

I was discussing this with a friend the other day. I think they should have kept each GTA soundtrack on the game through the newer ones. Playing the music from Vice City while playing GTAO would be perfect.

Oh, f***ing HELL, yes.

I've always got something like Charlie Parker, Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, Thad Jones, or whatever, on the stereo the rest of the time (often simply for work purposes!), so it feels 'odd' to be playing GTAO, and there not be some decent Jazz choons to listen to while cruising.

In my book, this stuff's as bad-ass as it comes:

There's only one song I like on FlyLo FM and thats "Flying Lotus - The Diddle" because its none of that "hard to follow rhythm" music.

I preferred the jazz fusion station over the regular jazz station, but I would be happy with either form returning.

Well I knew that my Online character is going to be a don(even before release I was tempted to check the leaked radio stations) so I was hoping for a classical/jazz radio station
