Can't play Radio...

I'm a relatively new owner of a 86 Audi Coupe GT..  Am I missing something, 
or is it really the way the car was designed?  I have to have the ignition 
turned on to apply power to the radio.  If so, does it hurt anything to have 
the ignition on without the engine running?  I can anyways wire the radio 
around the ignition switch, but why on earth didn't the Audi engineers put 
in an auxilary position on the switch like all good North American Cars?

     Hmmmm.....And I thought there was a German Law that sez the radio has 
     to play all the time, key or not......
     Don't take this the wrong way, but have you tried just turning it on? 
     True, there is no aux position, but you really don't need one.  If you 
     are used to American cars, you may not have even tried turning it on 
     without the key in the ignition.
