Lazlow (1986)

V-Rock is a radio station based in Reddick, Florida in 1984 and later Vice City by 1986. It broadcasts to Vice City. The station is featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It was originally hosted by Couzin Ed, until Lazlow Jones took over in 1986, when Grand Theft Auto: Vice City takes place.

As its name implies, the station primarily plays rock, particularly 80s hair metal and glam metal, but also plays some heavy metal tracks. Station promos often included derogatory comparisons to other stations, mocking the kind of synthesizer-based music played by its competitors while insinuating that real men only listen to the rock music that V-Rock airs. The station's mascot is a vulture, as can be seen in the station's logo; V-Rock DJ Lazlow would often complain that the bird got more air time than he did.

Description[]

The station was officially endorsed by rock artists of the time, including Jezz Torrent of Love Fist, who can regularly be heard in V-Rock's promos. The station also operated a studio at it's Vice City headquarters, which would often be used by Love Fist for their recording sessions. V-Rock also features call-ins from members of the public (similar to that of Lazlow's later station Chatterbox FM, although with far reduced prominence). The three callers featured in GTA Vice City are Couzin Ed, who wishes to vent his anger at Lazlow for "stealing" his job, Mitch Baker and a person who refers to himself as Snow-Dog. The phone line is also used in GTA Vice City Stories, although in this instance the only caller is a guy who hates Couzin Ed.

The V-Rock Hotel in Las Venturas, San Andreas takes its name from the radio station and features the V-Rock logo prominently on its sign.
