Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It isn't at all uncommon for a radio to fail after a battery disconnect, dead battery or jump start.

The first thing that should be done is check fuses. If fuses are good then the next step would be to remove the radio and test it's power and ground feeds to ensure there isn't a wiring or power distribution issue. Since the problem happened after a battery disconnect it's unlikely to be a loss of power or ground if fuses are good, the radio will almost surely need to be replaced or be sent out to somewhere such as United Radio for repair.
