so it is not that strange that a turned off radio could detect some radio transmission, the power source on a radio is mostly to amplify the radio signal.

Sometimes by a total fluke, natural objects might resonate at the particular frequency of some radio broadcast. There are reports of this sort of thing, although it is quite rare, and it is just like you describe, where you hear sounds coming from something that shouldn't ordinarily be making the sound. I can't remember the name of this, but it is a phenomenon known to science.

I don't know how it could happen but I can relate a similar experience.
A friend an I were parked in a car late at night in a small town near an old airport.

My father, while in the navy, once caught a radio transmission or something by the rim of his GLASS!
(I mean a glass of an ordinary potable liquid that he was holding in his hand... And he had witnesses.)

I have experienced the same kind of behavior in a way. I have a guitar tube amp head(Laney) and a 4x12" cab I play guitar through. On a couple of occassions After the amp was powered off and disconected from the cab a faint fly like buzzing of broadcast could barely be heard coming from the unconnected cab. Also once when there was a loose connection from my guitars pickups wiring I was able to pick up a very strong AM signal on the same amp.
