Power Line powered FM radio

I had an idea of building an FM receiver that is powered from the electromagnetic fields generated by power-lines.
My question is , how can I make the electromagnetic field receiving antenna? Will a simple copper coil work? If so, can the same coil be used as the RF antenna or will that have to be separate?

Harvesting unmetered power from electric company power lines is illegal.
But perhaps you are harvesting power from your household power lines.
