Default Radio help, 1985 C4

I have a Bose radio problem!!

The radio acts like a tach, as revs get higher the static gets louder, if I turn the radio on. If I leave the radio on and turn the ignition off, the next time I turn the ignition on to start the car the radio works fine!!!

This sounds more like a problem with one or more of your speakers. The radio itself may be fine. Try to listen to each of your speakers separately the next time you notice the problem. You may be able to isolate which speaker it might be. Each speaker has an amplifier on it and they tend to go bad. You will notice a high pitched whining noise in the speaker as the engine rpm's increase. Usually it "pops" or stops working altogether. The speaker/amplifiers can easily be replaced.
