    The context is that I often hear my neighbor listening to the radio, and I want to know what station it is so I can listen to it, because I always like the music very much.

    My attempt: Melyik rádióállomást halgat?

    Melyik adót hallgatod? (informal)
    Melyik adót tetszik [ejtsd: teccik] hallgatni? (formal)

    I think rádióállomás is possible too, though less common. In such case:

    Melyik rádióállomást hallgatod/hallgatja/tetszik hallgatni?

    Yes, there are many possibilities.
    I think you can even say: Melyik rádiót hallgatod? It sounds terrible and illogical but if my memory serves me well people used to say it, right???

    PS: It might not be as illogical: Kossuth Rádió, Danubius Rádió (no longer), Juventus Rádió, etc...

    It's not illogical because - as you say - nowadays (it was new to me too when I came back) the radio stations are just called x rádió as opposed to x adó (e.g. Kosssuth adó) before I moved abroad.

    I don't suggest anything containing "tetszik", unless the person you are talking to is very old/there is an important difference of age between the speakers.
