There is a timer that retains power to your accesories after the car is shut off, that timer/relay may have become damaged. As much as it will stink, you may need to disconnect your battery after you shut off the car until you can fix the problem.

If his radio is on, I would actually suspect an issue with his key/ignition cylinder. When you take out the key and the car is off, but the radio is on, if you open the door, does it give the door chime sound that indicates your key is still in the ignition?

When the car is off, key out, the only power that stays is the power for windows/sunroof. That power will stay on for a couple mins or until the driver door opens.
