Radio Shows are a type of collectible found in Alan Wake. They are fragments of Pat Maine's radio show on KBF-FM, which can be collected by turning on their respective radios (it is not necessary, however, to fully hear a radio show in order to collect it). After unlocking a radio show, it will become available in the main menu. There is a total of the 11 radio shows that can be heard and collected through the game.

Episode 5: The Clicker[]

  • While not counted as a collectible, a radio can be turned on, which will have Pat Maine talking about Poets of the Fall before playing their single, "War".


  • Despite not being related to them nor count towards the KBF-FM achievement, Doctor Emil Hartman's recordings are listed alongside the radio shows on the main menu. Collecting all these recordings will unlock the Medical Opinions achievement.
  • "Lorna Miles, Humanitarian" and the radio show featuring "War" in Episode 5 are not required for the KBF-FM achievement either for not being fully collectible radio shows in the game.
  • There is a conversation between Mulligan, Thornton and Janes in Episode 2 which can be heard by interacting with the communication equipment at the Sharrif Station. It isn't considered as a radio show and therefore also doesn't count towards the KBF-FM achivement.
