Does the radio go dead or does it sound like the signal disappears? An FM signal can be swamped by noise sources - I wonder if your alternator is putting out enough noise to swamp out the radio signal. If that theory is correct, listening to an AM station should tell the tale. AM will reproduce the noise audibly. If AM is going dead also, then I'd lean towards grounding issues. If AM is noisey then you probably need to install a noise filter in-line with the radio power lead, put a filter cap on the alternator, and or examine your ground straps.
