GTA:SA uses a new technique for the radio stations. Whereas Vice City used a single massive audio track per radio station, San Andreas splits each station into about 150 audio clips, which are strung together randomly according to some rules. The audio clips are things like:

* Station idents
* Announcements about in-game events (e.g. weather, travel)
* General chatter
* Phone-ins
* Commercials
* Programming (mostly songs)

Commercials are not included with the main radio stations, but in a seperate file.

The programming is further split up. Most songs consists of one audio clip for the main body of the song, and three different intros and outros, each with different chatter over them (or no chatter). You can make a playlist consisting entirely of K-DST music and Hans Oberlander chatter! You could play Charles Wright's "Express Yourself," then run the Master Sounds FM ID about hearing the songs before they were sampled, then play NWA's "Express Yourself!"

What could possibly be better?
