Andy Williams once sang a favorite Christmas tune of ours that goes a little something like this:
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when you hang up your stocking, and do some trash-talking in opponents’ ears, it’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Empire Central RadioKnown today as a “Top 40” station, Empire Central Radio plays all the popular hits of the decade. And, of course, a popular radio station would not be complete with a humorous and ironic disc jockey that gives commentary on the time’s new trends. Starting in the 1940s, the music playing is mostly big band and swing with songs by The Andrew Sisters and Bing Crosby. As the times change within Mafia II, so does the music. As the game moves into the 1950s, the music becomes more of a popular music station that features rock and roll, with artists like Buddy Holly.
Empire Classic Radio
This is basically an “oldies” radio station that begins by playing more traditional music from the 1920s and 1930s, mostly including jazz and big band. Throughout Mafia II the music changes to more of a popular radio and plays music of the current decade but takes a stance as a conservative station by excluding rock and roll. To go along with the conservative vibe of the station, it includes an announcer who gravely reads breaking news throughout the game.
Focusing on the heavy beats of rhythm and blues and jazz, Delta Radio dives into the quickly changing music scene of the 1940s. This station concentrates on African American music of the time and brings to light new genres in music. In the later timeline of Mafia II, the radio station includes more rock and roll music from artists like Little Richard and Chuck Berry.
While some of these artists you may not have heard of (I know I haven’t), the soundtrack of Mafia II will have you boogieing in no time. For those of you who just can’t get enough of the catchy tunes in Mafia II, the soundtrack is available for download on Amazon.com. And if you haven’t already, go nab a copy of Mafia II Director’s cut for yourself from the GameAgent Store!
