Question about radio

I tried searching but I wasn't coming up with much


Is there anyway to have the radio stay on after you kill the engine?


Far too many times I arrive at my destination and there is a good song on the radio that I wanna hear but at the same time I don't wanna burn the extra fuel.

you can just click the key back so it will stop the engine, but not turn off the truck and there is no skip in the song

You could run both the power wires together to a battery source either directly to the battery or to a similar powersource in the dash or fusebox. I did this once because I did not like to have my key in the ignition just to play some music.
