I think this game might sell pretty well here, and who knows? It might be a reality sooner than we think. After all, I can remember when there was just one generic Monopoly set, and now they have a jillion themed sets. And hell, if Miami can get its own episode of this game, why not us?
Anyway, just for kicks, I designed my own (partial) radio universe for what I am calling Grand Theft Auto X: The Screwston Chronicles.
Gumbo Funk: Greasy jams from the Gulf Coast
Radio 6400: For those who remember when ex-ing in Texas was free and legal
Principal artists: Alphaville, Bronski Beat, the Cure, the Smiths, the Normal, New Order, Erasure, Love and Rockets and Ministry.
Ridin' Dirty Radio: All U.G.K. all the time
Balls and My Word: Houston hip-hop other than U.G.K.
Principal artists: Scarface/Geto Boys, Trae, Z-Ro, Slim Thug, Lil' Keke, DJ Screw, Fat Pat, Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, Big Moe. Devin the Dude. (Scarface, Willie D., Z-Ro, and Trae could be playable characters.)
The Quest for Pure Sanity: The weirdest and most unsettling music from Texas
Principal Artists: Butthole Surfers, 13th Floor Elevators, Jandek, Ornette Coleman, Daniel Johnston, Rusted Shut, the Legendary Stardust Cowboy, the Pain Teens, the Red Krayola, Jana Hunter, Bongo Joe, various Domokos projects, Linus Pauling Quartet, Culturcide.
Shady's Playhouse: Houston blues
The Old Quarter: Houston folk and country
The Island: Best of Texas Punk/underground rock
Principal artists: Really Red, less freaky Butthole Surfers, Fatal Flying Guilloteens, various Tex Kerschen projects, Big Boys, Dicks, Scratch Acid, and I guess you'd have to throw the Judy's in here.
Radio Segundo Barrio: Old-school pachuco boogie
Hand on the Pump: Hip-hop and modern pop with a Latin tinge
Radio Free Katrinaville: For the New Orleanians in exile
Principal artists: The entire universe of New Orleans music, but heavy on stuff from today and the recent past, such as Lil' Wayne, Mystikal, Juvenile, Soulja Slim and the Rebirth, New Birth, Soul Rebels, and Hot 8 brass bands.
