Default 2006 Ram - Radio won't turn on after cold start.

I have a 2006 Dodge ram 2500 work truck which recently developed a new electrical problem. The stock radio with clock won't turn on after I start the truck for the first time of the day. Clock is not lit up either. I drive the truck to work - about 15 minutes and everything is dead.

Shut the engine off and restart it and both the radio and clock are back on. The clock has the right time too. If I do errands throughout the day the radio works just fine.

I'm assuming that the 'start' circuit computer must shut off things like the radio so that all 12v goes to the starter on cold starts.

I'm puzzled and don't really know where to start!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
