    theres the little gadget called the iTrip, can be bought on ebay for around £25 delivered but obviously itll only work within range of your car stereo or home radio. not sure if theres a seperate tuner itself??

    altho technically illegal in the uk as they flowt the wireless & telegraph act of 1949....

    Yeah the iTrip's a tidy piece of kit. www.griffintechnology.com Paid £32.50 on-line from the States and delivered within 4 days.

    Worth it.

    Hang on, correct me if I am wrong guys but iTrip allows you to play your songs on the radio. Not access radio stations.

    I think the original question was regarding an add on to allow radio playback on the iPod not the other way around.

    Hi

    Thanks for the replies

    Yes the idea is to attach something onto the IPOD so you can listen to an FM radio so this attachment is a radio type thing

    I saw some MP3 players have FM radios in them so I was thinking it would be nice if the IPOD could do it too
