Here's an instrucable for that,

It's nothing more than one of the many varieties of crystal radio.  Although presumably one of the first versions.

I would love to buy one pre-made. Could someone make one for me? I have preamps.

For those who want to build real Tesla spooky radio, here is the schematics of Tesla antennas, and some few words:

As preamp you can use my Light reader, modified as a radio preamp:

Instead of photo-resistor connect here output from crystal-reciever. It is modified old guitar fuzz and it's clipping diodes will protect your PC LINE-IN input from damage when crackles or hum will come from magnetic or electric storm going around. Output is never more than cca 1,5V RMS. Never connect it to MIC input!! It is too high for it! CHI
