Ice, I'm not quite sure myself since your computer and the radio are far apart and there shouldn't be any interference at all but It wouldn't hurt to disable some fan and see.

If it doesnt, the simple answer is dirty power. You are most likely using a cheap no name brand power supply which is causing the issue.
what, so interferance from the computer is going OUT through the psu, into the house's electrical circuits?

Yeah, exactly. How do you think electrical signal quality degrades in your house?

if it was the mains power (which i assume you are talking about), then how come it only affects some stations
