For other meanings of music, see Music (disambiguation).

After purchasing a sound system, from a small transistor to a Hi-Fi surround system, Sims will be able to listen to music through radio stations covering different music genres. Some games and expansions even allow players to add their own radio stations by using music from their computer.

The Sims 2Edit

Most stations have a wall-mounted speaker which only plays that station, and which is only available on community lots.[n 1] Some expansion and stuff packs also added additional songs to existing stations.

With FreeTime, custom radio stations can be created from the audio options menu. Players are able to create and name their own custom radio stations, and choose which songs are played on it. Songs from any existing radio station, as well as all build mode, buy mode, Create A Sim, and neighborhood music can be added to the custom station. All custom radio stations reside under a special pie menu option called "Custom Station ..." and can be played on any stereo in-game, but cannot be played on wall-mounted speakers.
