So God is latino? I bet he has a sweet low-rider

All electronic devices (like amps,wireless systems) are made to accept outside interferince but produce none.

happens to me when I use my fuzz factory

btw random fact: The band Air traffic used to pick up the communication radio of an airport nearby through their amps, that explains their band name

I had Welsh radio coming through my amp before, that's the weirdest thing to ever come out of anything ever.

Even a radio.

You've got something in the front end acting as an envelope detector for AM stations most likely.
Maybe some small value hi pass caps to ground or even some RF tank circuits here and there would stop it for ya.

All it takes is a diode and it doesn't take much for something in the circuit to do that then the amplifier amplifies and walla ya got yourself a radio receiver.

Remember the cat whisker radios where all it took was a hunk of galena crystal and small wire contact (the cat whisker)? You usually wound a coil of wire using an oatmeal box and made a slide contact with a piece of copper to tune in different radio stations. That and an earpiece and you were in business, no batteries required. There are endless varieties of these things with various degrees of complexity and sophistication. It's how radio began for many.
