The general soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories comprises radio stations that broadcast music and information to Liberty City, circa 1998. Because GTA Liberty City Stories is set in the exact location as Grand Theft Auto III, only three years earlier, some of the radio stations featured are seen as earlier counterparts of the radio stations in GTA III, while other listed stations and radio shows have suggestively ended broadcast by GTA III's timeline. Unlike Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and similar to GTA III, most songs on the radio were created by Rockstar for the game or are public domain.
Also unlike GTA San Andreas, the radio stations featured in GTA Liberty City Stories are not dynamic, meaning their programming does not change during the course of the game, with the same programs and DJ announcements repeated. There are, for example, no updates referring to weather changes. The only exception are the "Liberty News" bulletins which play once - and only once - following major events in the game.
Nonetheless, the GTA Liberty City Stories radio system maintains elements of continuity with both GTA III and GTA San Andreas, with DJs and callers reappearing from earlier games. For example, Richard Burns, the journalist for WCTR in GTA San Andreas, phones into LCFR. Another change is that some radio stations have a different DJ, which is noticeable in Lips 106, with Andee being the co-host to the older Cliff Lane. By GTA III, however, Andee is the sole DJ of the station.

Liberty City Free Radio, abbreviated as LCFR, is a talk radio station much like WCTR in that it is comprised of several programs. All LCFR programs except Chatterbox are assumed to have not survived to reappear in GTA III.
- After completing certain "milestone" missions in the game, the first time Toni enters a vehicle and listens to the radio, which ever station is tuned will play a Liberty News bulletin featuring an unnamed female newscaster (who may well be Lianne Forget of GTA San Andreas' WCTR News as she is played by the same voice actress) discussing the event and sometimes announcing news headlines, like the opening of the bridge into Shoreside Vale and the destruction of Fort Staunton. These bulletins play only once, but will repeat if the player gets wasted or leaves the vehicle when driving.
Like its predecessors, the radio in GTA Liberty City Stories provides satirical commercials for products, events, and organizations.
- Ammu-Nation — GTA's famous gunstore is back, providing supplies to people who want to protect themselves from the then-imminent Y2K bug. References Logger Beer and Redwood Cigarettes from GTA San Andreas.
- Bathtub Gin Still — A working replica of the bathtubs used to secretly make booze during the Prohibition era.
- Chateau de Buf — A brand of wine tailored to foster and enhance the sexual experience.
- Crowfest '98 — A hybrid of Ozzfest and Live Aid, featuring rock singer Crow flavoring his rock with ethnic music.
- Citizens United Negating Technology For Life And People's Safety — narrated by a person suspiciously similar in tone to Jack Thompson .It has the acronym "CUNTFLAPS".
- Feel All Great Sports — A sporting goods store with a gay theme, hence the acronym "FAGS". References the Ultimate Disk in the Dark from GTA San Andreas.
- Koala — A parody of Charmin toilet paper, using koalas instead of bears.
- Liberty City's Finest — A recruiting commercial for the Liberty City Police Department, stereotyping policemen as lazy yet violent. Similar in many ways to a commercial heard in the GTA San Andreas radio system, with the actress in it the same one who does the Kilimanjaro advert in the game.
- Maibatsu Womb — Another Maibatsu vehicle in the tradition of the Monstrosity and Thunder, which does not appear in game. The Womb is an accessory laden and presumably jumbo-sized minivan catering to the married husband.
- The Mainframe — A parody of The Matrix, though the Matrix technically did not premiere until 1999, the year after GTA Liberty City Stories is set in.
- PastMaster — A quasi-educational computer game that helps children relive famously atrocious American battles throughout history.
- Pilgrim's Pantry — A restaurant with a 17th-century with a Pilgrims theme. Holds a weekly Crucible night.
- RAILS — A Colombian-manufactured cereal intended for consumption through the nose, much like cocaine.
- Space Monkey 7 —A video game involving monkeys attacking Earth after a nuclear holocaust.
- Swapmeet — A sitcom involving a group of colleagues living in a "million dollar apartment", spoofing Friends.
- Plug — A 50's style musical commercial for tampons.
- Vivisection — A science kit where kids can run biological experiments on live rats. Also comes as a popular kart-racing video game, and its commercial satirizes the numerous kart-racing video games released in the late 90's, such as Mario Kart 64, Crash Team Racing, and Diddy Kong Racing.
- Liberty City Cruises -- A commercial inviting you to go on a luxury cruise away from crime in a "conspicuously similar" warship. Comes with cots and rooms with little to no space.
- If the players leaves and re-enters a vehicle, the radio will jump to a different part of the programming. This can be most prominently noticed when listening to LCFR.
