    If the problem is RF interference coming from something in the car an amplifier will amplify the interference too and it will not improve.

    I've found the two things that cause interference with my factory radio are the aircon kicking in and the el-cheapo LED park/indicator lights I've installed in the roo bar. Doesn't appear to be temp dependent tho'.
    I have heard Dr Karl mention something about the cheaper LED household globes doing this to TV/radio reception too...

    Yep listened to the Swans V Eagles grand final the first one on ABC 1
    10 witness's there as well.
    We were camped on the left after the bridge just left of where the road goes up
    into the mountains. Bugger all fire wood ,we spied a dead tree in the middle
    of the camping area and added up what fines we'd get if chopped down, we
    decided to let it stand. lol

    What would the fine be if it caught fire while still standing?

    Or this one from 3:38 onwards.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMqPw2ajO0M

    And this one has many Spanish folk(gypsy flamenco), Indian & Jazz in it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWfQSQnldDc

    And this is how it got started for this particular composer back in early 1990's. Heavy gypsy flamenco influence there.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QvoeddedM0


    If you've heard of Paco de lucia & the guitar trio(with John Mcloughlin, Al de Meola), they started this gypsy/jazz fusion stuff back in mid-late seventies.

    New age is a genre of music that is hard to classify as a certain sound or instruments, 'cos some of the "sleep/relax music" also fall into new age.

    This guy is credited for the revival of New Age gypsy flamenco sort of music, back in late 80's & early 90's. He's pretty quiet nowadays. You can hear the latino, bossa nova rhythms in it.

    One of my mates was a leading Flamenco guitarist back it the 70's
