There are fewer stations than in previous instalments, featuring only 8 compared to 12 in Saints Row and 10 in Saints Row 2.
Unlike previous games in the Saints Row series, Saints Row: The Third has much easier custom playlist because all songs are available from the beginning of the game.
Loading a save directly from another can cause radio commercials from earlier in the game to cross into later saves (i.e the safeword ad) and vice versa. This also occurs with the news reports after missions.
Even though Saints Row: The Third is set in Steelport, some radio stations from Stilwater in are available.
