    Ok, I have a strange question.

    We just bought a 36" Sony TV (non Wega, Non XBR).

    Anyway, the radio station nearby comes through very clearly while the TV is on and it's incredibly annoying. Does anyone know why this is happening and a way to stop it?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Is it a AM or FM station?

    Try disconnecting cables from the TV, particularly the cable/satellite TV coax, and see if the problem goes away. If it does, you will need to add a AM or FM filter to your cable line. If not, then it's probably coming in over the AC line. A surge protector with a RF filter may help, as will winding the AC cord in a ferrite ring (available at Radio Shack).
