Could be a lot of reasons. Animals' hearing is much more sensitive that ours. The radio could be too loud for him. Loud noises are not only startling, they can actually hurt the ears. As far as the dishes, maybe he got splashed with water while the dishes were being done so he associates the unpleasant water spritz with dishes. Maybe it's the activity going on while the dishes are being done...either too much movement, noise, or both. The tv probably isn't as scary because it's mostly talking, so even if it gets loud, he associates it with people in the house. Radios have lots of high pitched and weird tones in the music. Some of it even makes me want to run and hide.
