did wwii planes have radios?

I know they had radar, or the allies did at least, but I'm wondering since the cockpits were still open, and that's the way I have my planes in my story, if the noise of the engine would have defeated the purpose of a radio on board a fighter plane of that level of technology, or if headphones would be required to make it plausible for these planes to have radios in them.

setting: steampunk, wwii level tech, secondary world, so everything's made up, but trying to keep it real.

Googled: WWII, dogfights, fighter planes, radio, combinations

TIA
