Why is my subwoofer playing Italian radio?

This is a strange one. An Italian radio station appears to be playing from my subwoofer extremely faintly. I noticed it when my PC was on standby and everything was quiet. I have a Sony 2.1 speaker system connected to my PC, and for some reason, only my subwoofer (not the treble speakers) is playing this radio. Where is it coming from? I noticed that it does not play when I disconnect my speakers from the audio output in the back of my PC, but I have no TV/radio cards in my PC at all. It seems a bit weird, has anyone else ever seen anything like this?

I have discovered that it ONLY plays when my PC is on standby - it is definitely not there when the PC is "on".

What you need to make you own radio reciever realy is

Small power input
Antenna (powered)
Speaker to play thru

You pc standby pushes bout 5v or summat similar
your speakers act as the antenna powered by the power thru standby
and your sub is the speaker
