That is cellphone interference.
Is a cellphone mast nearby, is there one in your pocket?.
Is your cellphone in your pocket seeking a tower because you are a distance from a tower?.

Just to fancy a guess;
I wonder if there is a capacitance inductor that is short-circuiting?
Maybe the power switch is arching between the two terminals?
Dirty cobwebs can pose as short-circuits too?
My pops passed too. During his last days, I had physical symptoms he described...that left with him.

I don’t really go with the idea that if something has a physical explanation it therefore becomes un – supernatural. To expect the laws of physics to un – do themselves in order to have evidence of an interaction with a dimension that is above or outside of our normal perception to me seems like a jump in logic.
It’s obvious the radio has a electrical short of some kind, but it’s the synchronicity of the thing that grabs at your heart.
When its just making the same tapping sound like that, and only changes when you turn volume, then why would it be in any way supernatural? Clearly if it has a natural explanation, then thats what you should go with... If there is an electrical fault making the noise, why would you seek an alternative supernatural reason?
Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, yet are experienced as occurring together in a meaningful manner. The concept of synchronicity was first described in this terminology by Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychologist, in the 1920s.
The concept does not question, or compete with, the notion of causality. Instead, it maintains that just as events may be grouped by cause, they may also be grouped by meaning. A grouping of events by meaning need not have an explanation in terms of cause and effect.

When the cause is a "capacitor," each time you hear the beep, energy is being lost to heat and sound, so it must fade away and stop. If it doesn't fade away, it's not a capacitor.
If you turn the radio off, and immediately take out the batteries, and it stops immediately, then its not a capacitor, but the power switch that is shorting, and leaking current into the radio, even though its in the off position.
I'm sorry it's not ghosts, nor spirits.

Its battery operated, it only happens a couple of times a year lasts about 5 minutes, from the off button no electricity
