The radio fuse is under the hood, on the firewall (as are the window fuses, in pairs, RF+LR, LF+RR; and the aux fan). the contacts in these can get dirty, try cleaning it out with some fine-grit sandpaper if it's really bad, otherwise a pencil eraser will work quite well. I assume none of the fuses are blown? Check the blower motor for a leaf or two it may have sucked in - I assume you mean the heater blower (top left horizontal lever out of the 4) and not the AC blower (under the dash). The AC fuse is under the hood as well I believe. There should be a listing of which fuse is for what on a piece of paper in the fusebox cover - if there isn't an English description, flip it over, it has 4 languages

I cleaned and replaced the fuse for the radio and it worked for a few minutes. I drove the car 20 feet and it went out again. I do mean the heater blower. the first day i got the car i was messing with levers not knowing what they did yet. I heard the fan come on for seconds and it hasn't worked since. The radio I've actually investigated but the heater and or blower ive yet to look into. so dont no what to expect. as for the a/c ,it does not work at all! round knobs dont work ,green light does not come on and I detached the compressor belt for winter . I'll look into the a/c in spring.
but other than that the cars in damn good condition.I'll gladly email pics to any who are interested. thanks again george
