    ok i found this thing called the Griffin iFM for 20$ from the Griffin Audio site and cnet gave it an OK review but they also gave the apple tuner an OK review so it sounds decent and i think I'm going to try it out.

    Griffin iFM

    I have this. It has two modes - FM and Remote. In remote mode it does just that. Operates the Touch. In FM mode it just uses the Touch battery. There is no interaction with the Touch. There is a LCD display on the iFM that shows the station, volume, etc.

    I hope this helped.

    I had one for my nano, but the reception sucked. Unfortunately it doesn't work for Touch also.

    I'm almost positive they make FM scanners for just about every iPod.

    Yeah but they could be crappy though for the touch since it's new....I just hope Apple's radio remote is touch capable soon.

    Wow, I didn't know anyone actually bought those. I think they're a TERRIBLE rip off. $50 for something that most MP3 players HALF the price of iPods automatically come with. Ridiculous.
