I opened up the LC to see if I could figure it out (didn't have a long enough allen wrench to open the Classic ) I traced the noise to the internal speaker; sure enough, when I plug something into the headphone port, the speaker is disabled and the noise goes away. As near as I can figure, this is RF interference between the speaker and the fan, which are right next to each other on the LC board; I don't know if this is also the case with the Classic (though I suspect it is,) and I don't know why it would do it now when it almost certainly didn't when the computer was manufactured. So, quick fix: use external speakers or headphones.
