Do i need a radio?

I have been doing some digging but haven't been able to get an answer. I'm wondering if I can play my music with my iPhone through the speakers without the radio. I have a radio it just doesn't have an auxiliary and it's in an overhead console that I would just like to get rid of. I also have an amp in it, will that help me? Not to good with these electronics so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Yes you can...all you need is an amplifier. You use an RCA to 3.5mm headphone cord and plug it into the red and white inputs of amplifier. You control the volume with the iPhone.

This is basically the setup i have in mine. In my case to power the amp I ran a mainpower line to feed the amp(use good cable) and a switched power to turn it on and off. I think the switched power is usually handled by the carstereo which in this case is not part of the system.
