Light interference...

I just installed the first 5 fluorescent lights in my shop and they work well....bought them new. The only problem I have is when I turn them on they jam up my radio causing static. I have seen this in years past but never knew what caused it or how to fix it. Can this be fixed? Can't have a shop without a radio.

That's the electronic ballasts causing the noise. Not a whole lot you can do.
Time to switch to FM radio.
