Grid Labels on Polar Plots

Is it possible to control the text of the polar grid labels?

I would like to have 8 grid lines in theta, but label only 4 of them. I also want to set my own labels, such as "NE", "NW", "SW" and "SE".

I would like to turn off the labels along r completely or replace them with my own set of labels.

The comments in indicate that the properties of the gridlines and labels can be accessed directly from the polar axes. How can I find out what keywords can be set for each of the attributes: thetagridlines, rgridlines, thatagridlabels and rgridlabels?
