Question about JBL CREATUREIIWHITE Computer Speakers
I heard a faint sound from my speaker. When I listened closer, I heard the programming from a local radio station. I have never listened to it streaming on-line.
It's called RFI, Radio Frequency Interference.
Certain capacitors in the amp, or on the motherboard can act as radio tuners, as can unshielded speaker wire. Your only hope is to use shielded speaker cables, ensuring that the shield is grounded, and make sure you have three prong (grounded) outlets. Sometimes rerouting your wires behind the PC can help.
Do you have dial-up service/modem. If so the telephone wire is susceptible to RFI in a big way. The RFI can bleed into the PC and cause your situation.

Testimonial: "I'll give the rerouting a try. Thanks!!"
This problem has been around since before the computer age and is quite common, it's also happened with local taxi firms in the area suddenly broadcasting on your speakers.
The reason it happens is that the speaker cable length is very close to the frequency the station is broadcasting on one solution is to pruchase a ring magnet and wrap the cable several time around it, another is to use screened cable, both are not cost effective, the simple solution is to purchase a speaker extension lead.
