Loving: the GTA IV radio stations

Yep, I'm still playing GTA IV (some may even say obsessively but I think I have it under control :) and one of the many reasons is the richness of the music. I am discovering so many great tracks in the course of just cruising around the city that often I'm happy enough to just drive and ignore the stories and missions altogether.

This list (from Zergwatch.com ) gives a sense of what's there. The only station I'll generally quickly flick past is LCHC - Liberty City Hardcore - just a little too shouty for my tastes.
