It's possible that the wire that connects the starter to the battery has corrosion/battery acid on it and is creating a lot of resistance in the wire. Sometimes you'll have a good connection, sometimes you'll have a bad connection thus creating an intermittent problem. You should check the wire that hooks into the starter, disconnect it, clean it with a small, wire bristle brush, and maybe spray some of that red, battery terminal spray on it, then hook it back up. Make sure you disconnect the battery first. It's pretty hard to get down in there but you can save yourself a ton of money if you do it yourself. You may be able to reach it better from underneath if you drive the car up on some ramps.

Sounds like the starter may have some issues. However, the headlights and radio not coming on is a sign that either the battery is not charged up sufficiently, or there are some blown fuses.
Also, the connections should be checked at the battery for corrosion which can block the electricity from flowing freely from a 'charged' battery to the starter or the lights.
Good luck on this repair.
