And the commercial are a little on the short side as well, the many many times I heard there is a new computeeeerrrrr just as big as a house have been invented....
Here's what they said
"The .fsb music files are simply .mp3 files with a different extension to trick you into thinking they're cryptic or not playable. Or whatever. In any case, there's a radio music subfolder that contains a 1940s folder and a 1950s folder and then the individual radio station folders ("classic", "delta", etc.) All the speech stuff is in there, too. To listen to the music outside of the game all you need to do is rename the files so they have an mp3 extension. (YMMV depending on what you're trying to play them with, however. They play perfectly fine in J.River Media Center, my PC audio-player of choice.)
Anyway, I can't guarantee this will work but try this... Take whatever mp3s you want to hear, change the extensions to .fsb, then throw them into whatever folders for the time period you want to hear them. If you want to hear them in both eras of the game, throw them all into both the "40" and "50" folder. I dunno if you can create a brand new radio station folder that doesn't already exist. That might not work. So maybe dump them all into a single radio station's folder.
Will this work? Dunno, but it might and it's very easy to try. The only thing that may prevent it is if you have your mp3s encoded at a ridiculously different quality. The radio tunes are pretty lo-fi. You may want to check the properties of the files included in the game and then mimic them when creating your own mp3s.

If you want to use your own music in-game, you'll need to install the FMOD Ex Programmer's API (Link). Then, using the fsbankex.exe tool (FMOD SoundBank Generator), convert your music using high bitrate MP3 or PCM if you have a nice sound system and a lossless source. Navigate to \pc\sds\music\Radio in your Mafia II folder and replace the files with your own converted .fsb audio. Hop in game and switch to the right radio station. If done correctly, you should have flawless playback of your choice of music and it'll sound great too.
