This is caused by the A/C Clutch relay if I recall correctly. Everytime the A/C compressor kicks out, it causes a voltage spike, which causes the radio to pop. There is a cheap fix soldering in a new diode I believe or you can spend big $$$ and buy a new relay. There should be plenty of info in the Archives or maybe on Chris Miller's page.
