Radio Stations in The BBJProjeK Organization and The Authority

As in previous years, radio stations play a big part in our organization. When on our headquarters or leisures, you can hear many of our radio stations, and you can ask the staff to switch and shuffle between stations, often accompanied by the protagonist's views on the station.

Description

In previous years (with the exception of The Lapiacery Era), radio stations were a single audio file, repeating after completing a loop. In 2023, most radio stations have been upgraded and are now dynamic. Some still consist of a single audio file.

When listening to our radio stations on a vehicle, exiting it does not automatically switch the engine off so the radio will still play while the engine is left idle. To fully switch the engine and the radio off, the user must hold the reloader when exiting the vehicle. When getting phone calls, it will interfere with the radio signal, much like in real life.

Stations

There are a combined total of 9 dynamic radio stations as of now, with some stations exclusive for our headquarters. The last radio station was added on April 22th, 2024. Tap on each radio station icon to get the full tracklist, Spotify playlist, streaming instructions and more information about it.

History

Each of these radio stations shares a common thread: they originated as regular Spotify playlists catering to specific genres. These playlists comprised a collection of songs within their respective genres, from which certain tracks were carefully curated and amalgamated to birth these innovative radio-based playlists. Below are some of their former titles:

Commercials

Several advertisements can be heard on the radio. Commercials are extracted from Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. These include:

“Sometimes the family wants that Italian taste without those tiny Italian portions, that’s why you should come to Al Dentes - all the mama-mia you can eat! It’s Italian food like you’ll never get in Italy. That’s because it’s an American theme restaurant! So the portions are huge, and the food tasteless and unhealthy. We’ve got a special linguine with Cheesy Poof sauce!”
— Al Dentes ad

“You can begin living a life of luxury. Why worry about health, your weight, or what people think of you? Now, you're faster! Motorized scooters are the future of the American lifestyle - carefree! Take the wait off!”
— Motorized Scooter ad
