Thumbs down Radio Only Works Intermittently

I rarely get to use the GP at the moment cos Mrs R loves driving it, but I managed to steal the keys this morning, and on my tedious commute to work I like to listen to Radio 5 (for all you whipper snappers, its on AM ). However, my usual pleasure in driving the GP was soured this morning with the radio constantly working fine, and then all of a sudden just starts blaring out static. If I change back to FM its fine, when I then change it back to AM, still the static. If I turn it off, then back on again, Radio 5 is back to all its glory. It only does it once every 20 minutes or so, but its begining to get on my nerves.

If it happened on FM when Mrs R is listening to the dulcet drone of Jo Willey or similar on Radio 1, I wouldnt be in the least bit bothered, but it doesnt, only on AM

Has anyone else experienced a similar problem, or is my GP telling me that I am getting old too soon and should really be listening to some apes banging drums on Radio 1?

I had exactly this problem with mine, Steve. The dealer has fitted a booster to the aerial and AM now works all the time.
