Radio Hollywood is an alternative rock radio station located in Hollywood. It is hosted by Kenny Hill, a dimwitted hipster who claims to know everything. The radio station is a known competitor with fellow alternative rock station Planet Alternative 90.5, which broadcasts 1990's alternative and grunge in comparison to Radio Hollywood's hipster-style alternative. Radio Hollywood also has competition with Underground FM, despite it not being a legitimate radio station.

The idea of a hipster rock station was heavily inspired by a radio station in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV . The in-game radio station Radio Broker served as a main source of inspiration. The hipster culture is also pretty big in the Greater Los Angeles area, and so OliCoon decided to add the station. ACR 103.5 was cut as a result of Radio Hollywood's addition.
- Jason seems to favor this station. Oliver, Michael, and Chloe also seem to like the station.
- Radio Hollywood seems to be based off of radio station KXLU, with influences from KROQ. It is also based off of Sirius XM stations Alt Nation, which plays new alternative rock, and Sirius XMU , which plays indie rock.
