Oh come on, dude, don't be lazy! The very first google hit for "Ipod
FM radio" is this:

http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore?productLearnMore=MA070G/A

A $50 combo wired remote and FM radio. The radio chats with the Ipod
over the data link (what Will was trying to tell you.) so you can
control it via the Ipod but the radio itself is in the accessory pod.

Will RockBox work with that accessory? Probably not until someone
wants it to badly enough to code for it.
