How can I decrease FM reception for my car? I have taken off the antenna, but would like to proceed further.

So, I have a new Sirius receiver and it broadcasts over whatever FM frequency I choose to my car radio. However, my area seems to have a lot of stations, with strong signals, so I get a lot of interference.
Obviously, I can just hardwire the receiver to the radio and this will solve my whole problem, but I was wondering if there was another step I could take in reducing the FM reception. Removing the antenna helped, so I was wondering if obstructing the remaining base it screws into would help. What material would dampen FM signals? Can I effectively reduce FM signals from the outside world but not one coming from inside my car, or is my whole car one big antenna?
