Sounds like speaker failure or perhaps a problem with the wiring harness to the radio itself.

well a lot of times the old chevys have bad wear on there antennas near the floor or elsewhere. so best bet and probably cheaper is to by an aftermarket antenna and while your at it get a new radio with cd to test the audio in speakers with out fm/am use. aftermarket harness from circuit city or gay bestbuy are color coded to any name brand after market radios.

sounds like something is wrong with the antenna.
