Auxiliary Chord out of a stock radio?

I wasnt really planning on buying a new deck but am getting tired of running my ipod the my cassett player. Is there any way that i can splice a wire or something in order to be able to use and auxiliary chord?
Thanks in advance

If your factory deck has an input for a CD changer (or other aux in), then you should be able to figure out the pins and buy/make a connector cord.

If not, then I suggest an FM modulator that plugs into your iPod.
I use this option and I am pleased.

You select a vacant frequency for your area and set a radio preset for that freq.
I set all of my FM2 presets to the empty freq. of my modulator...that way no matter what preset I was on on FM1, when I hit the FM2 button, my iPod plays.

They are approx $30 us. Sizes and styles vary by mfg.

Another option might be something like this:
