Radio comes on when key is off 1999

My 1999 Ford Ranger's radio comes on when the car is off and no key in the ignition. Was doing it randomelyu but now I have to make sure and turn it off before leaving the car.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

On some vehicles the power windows and radio stay powered until a door is opened, key doesn't matter.
This is tied in with the door latch switch.

To see if this might be the problem just check and see if the "Door ajar" light comes on when Drivers door is opened, if not then the switch in the Drivers door is not working.
Then test if Radio goes off if you open the passenger door, if so then you have the "leave power on" option and drivers door switch isn't working.

Google: Ranger Door ajar light

Switch sticking open is the most common issue.
