I hear a radio station when I'm watching cable TV. When I mute the sound I can still hear the radio music. Also the bottom receptacle in all of my electrical outlets do not work. I've checked my breaker box and nothing has changed. Any thoughts?

Two thoughts on your receptacles: (1) Often, half of each receptacle is controlled by a wall switch -- look for it. (2) In other cases, the two halves of a receptacle are on separate circuits -- in this case, you may have a tripped breaker or GFCI.

May not be either, but these are pretty easy to check.
