When driving the radio died then the car died wouldnt start again wont even turn over


It sounds like your alternator went bad. The alternator is responsible for keeping your battery charged and at full power. If it goes bad, your battery eventually drains and things start to shut down.
Get your alternator and battery tested, I'm sure you'll find the alternator has died.

I ave a 994 pontiac, bonnieville. about a week


there is probably a dead spot in the fuel pump,and when it is hot and you shut off the car it will not run.Next time the car does not start,bang on the gas tank with a piece of wood or spray some starter fuel in the throttle body. if it starts,it is a fuel problem.
use a spark tester to see if there is spark as well.ignition modules and coil packs are common on those cars,as well as the EGR valve getting stuck.that will cause the car to idle ok but die out as soon as 2500 rpm is reached.
