Why does my radio get perfect reception when i'm standing next to it, but it fades to static when i walk away?

It's an FM station. Perfect to nothing , simply by walking 6 or 7 feet from it. Do I possess special antennic powers? Can I get a job serving as a human reception-enhancer?

Mine does the opposite - works when I'm a few feet away, then stops when I'm next to it. Weird, huh!
