Unhappy Antenna/Rear Defrost Problems! HELP!!!

I just bought a 08 G6 GT recently and for some reason when I turn the Rear Defroster....'ON', the Radio Station goes....'OFF'

Does anyone know how to fix that?!

Thanks

Not sure if this has anything to do with yours, but if the same company is making all these windows, it could. I purchased a 2007 Buick Lacrosse on 9/16/11 and 4 day later I had to use the defogger and 15 minutes after I turned it on there was a loud boom and a huge hole was blown in my rear glass. After doing research on the net I found BULLETIN No: 03-08-44-005g. that states there could be static in the radio when using the rear defogger..It said NOTHING about it could explode. I also found other people on the internet that had had a hole to blow out in their rear windows too. I contacted GM and was told my 50,000 mile warranty had run out.. HOW DOES A DEFECT IN A PRODUCT RUN OUT....

I would keep calling, get ahold of someone high up, threaten to take it to bbb or a lawyer. That's bogus. Look at honda (i believe) and their sticking gas pedal. If someone was in the back seat, they could have gotton seriously hurt, especially for those who have small children that are in rear facing car seats.
