I'm thinking the JBL Xtreme is a Bluetooth speaker.
Check to see if you can stream the FM station you want to it via your phone.

Honestly, with all of the echo and noise you get in a bathroom/shower, you won't get hifi out of the best speaker in the world. You can still enjoy the music, but sound quality goes out he window.

I just use a small sony Bluetooth speaker in the bathroom and use a cheap prepay phone I got for $15 as the source, so I can play Pandora, slacker, spotify, etc... you could use the I heart radio or tune In apps to stream your radio of those stations are on the apps. The JBL speakers do sound quite good for the money, maybe look at the Charge 3 or charge 2+ since they are ok to get wet.

I'd never spend that much time in the shower that I'd need a radio! :p
I shave my head and do it in the shower. It's nicer than doing it over the sink. I have one of those little fog proof mirrors in there. Figure time to brush my teeth and fine trim up my beard and ears (ears. I never used to have to trim my ears. wtf?) and I'm a solid half hour in the bathroom.

So while I'm in the bathroom I can enjoy my music with the JBL Charge 3!*

*Guaranteed not to rust, bust, collect dust, explode, corrode or sink in the commode. :p

Really, it's a decent little speaker. Good bass for its size and gets plenty loud in my bathroom.

No AC powered devices near the shower. A girl was just electrocuted when her cell-phone, charger and extension cord fell into the tub.

Hey, you can try Pyle PSR7, it has fm tuner so you can listen to radio, but it's also under the 50$
