For the pre-tuned radio, see Radio (Fallout 4).

Classical Radio is a radio station in the Commonwealth.


This station has no DJ or speaking of any kind, just instrumental music. If the Institute is destroyed, then Classical Radio will be shut down and cannot be tuned into. However, the pieces can still be heard on any settlement jukebox.

The Institute

This station's broadcasts and the music it plays are the waves used by the synths to teleport by using the molecular relay device in and out of the Institute.



  • After the Institute has been destroyed and the Classical Radio shut down, the radio can be restarted using the following console command on PC: StartQuest RadioInstituteQuest.
  • Normally "Mars, Bringer of War" has a duration of around 6 minutes, but the rendition used has had its duration halved for unknown reasons.


Classical Radio appears only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenes

  • "Valse Diable" was probably scrapped from the game due to the fact that, being that the composer was active during the 20th century, the piece would've been too anachronistic to what the developers were looking for: Classical pieces written during the Enlightenment period and Romantic Era.
  • "Requiem in D minor" was likely scrapped due to the fact that the piece itself lasted longer than desired, at a whopping 55 minutes.
