How do I find the population within a defined radius of a certain point?

I'm looking for a tool (preferably free) that will provide population data for the area within a defined radius of a point on a map.

Ideally, it would be a website that allows you to click on a map, set a "center," and choose a radius from the center (say 10, 20, 100 miles). It would then provide information on the population within the chosen radius. At a minimum I need information on population size, but other demographic data would be helpful as well.
If there's no such site (or it's expensive), next-best would be a tool that at least provides this information for major metropolitan areas.
