I have a lamp that deosn't have a switch on it so I twist the bulb on and off. However, when I do that When my radio is on, it changes the chanel from 105.7 fm to I think 106.3 or slightly lower since it deosn't tune in perfectly. only when the lightbulb is halfay on deos it do this (it flickers, isn't very bright.) I thought that maybe electrons were intermittently connecting to the contacts on the lightbulb somehow creating a magnetic field. if you need more information from me please ask as I have been stumped on this for a couple of months. oh and the antenna on my radio is broken making it not recieve as well as it should. I bent one end and stuck it inside of itself. Re: Please provide further specifics - are the lamp and radio plugged into the same outlet? As it stands it would be difficult for us to find an answer to your question. Yes, they are in the same outlet
