Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Odd are the problem is internal in the radio. It's possible that you could have a wiring or connection, ignition switch or power distribution issue causing a loss of power or ground to the radio, but odds are if you aren't having any other electrical issues at the same time the problem will be in the radio.
What will need to be done is test the powers and grounds at the radio at the time it isn't' working. The connections at the radio can be wiggle tested, if nothing is found then a test light should be used to test the powers and ground. If ok then the radio can be condemned.
