It so happens that your radio decodes the FM signal to normal audio (20
to 20,000 Hz). What is transmitted from the radio to your ears is thus
not a radio signal, and your finding is not relevant to the problem of
how far a radio signal could travel between brains. If your brain could
receive the FM radio signal you would not need the radio at all, just
turn your head into the right position.
