Trivia

  • The dial numbers are the same as KOST, a radio station in real life California that plays pop and dance music from the late 1970s to now. Adding to the connection is imaging voice Sean Cadwell, who is the real life imaging voice for KOST. PPR may also be based on 102.7 KIIS FM, another real life adult contemporary station in Los Angeles, which is widely considered the most popular station in California.
    • Another connection to KIIS FM involves the station advertisements marketing PPR as "Westopolis' number one hit music station," which KIIS FM does in real life Los Angeles.
    • In addition, the station's host, Jesse Lozano, is a real life DJ for KIIS FM.
  • This is the favorite radio station of Amy Rose, Cosmo, Marine and Rouge, and second favorite radio station of Tails.
  • This is one of the default stations in Amy's, Tails', Rouge's, Cosmo's and Marine's vehicles, with the others being Boogie 101, C.R.O.K., Smash FM, K-Square, and Radio A.X. respectively.
  • This is one of the two default stations in all of the taxis, with the other being Sounds del Sur.
  • Madonna's inclusion in SA4 is possibly a very subtle reference to the original Sonic the Hedgehog's scrapped plot line.
    • Madonna is also dubbed the original "Queen of Pop" from the 1980s and 1990s before Britney Spears entered the scene in the late 90s - early 2000s and was labeled the modern Queen of Pop.
  • Lorde was sixteen when "Bravado" was recorded, dethroning Leslie Grace [who was eighteen when "No Te Rindas" (which was featured in SA3 on the Latin station Caribe Canciones) was recorded] as the youngest artist featured in a Sonic the Hedgehog game.
  • Berlin’s “The Metro” was reused in the 80’s Pop playlist in Shadow the Hedgehog 2: Southern Stakes.
