    You may be able to pick up the station you want from an Internet stream via the AOL Radio application.

    Unfortunately, you are out of luck if you want to listen to the real radio, because Apple's Radio Remote (if it hasn't been discontinued) does not work for the iPod touch.

    I used Wunder Radio to play the stations I wanted to listen to. Cost £3.99 (whatever that is is $)

    I only tried BBC stations, but I am sure you could get any as long as there is an internet stream.

    You would need to be connected to WiFi to listen though (obviously) since you are using a iPod Touch.

    I recently purchased the Griffin Navigate. It plugs into the dock of the iPod Touch. You then plug in any headphones you wish (big plus) into the other end of the Navigate.

    The Navigate unit provides FM tuning, as well as volume and track control for the Touch. It also dislplays album and track when you're playing from the iPod. I bought it so I could skip tracks by feel in the car and listen to FM radio whenever I wanted, even without a WiFi connection.

    It purportedly has its own app, iFM, that uses your WiFi location to automatically populate your local FM stations, but I haven't tried that yet. It does allow for 4 preset stations, even without the app. The sound is very clear.

    There are two downsides: 1)it draws its operating power from the iPod and 2)it adds considerable length to your headphone cord.

    HTH,

    By the way, the Griffin Navigate is compatible with the iPod Touch 1G and no, you don't need wifi or any special app.
