Here's a good one . . . (electrical problem)

Occaisionally my radio will die while I am driving my '73S if I turn on the headlights, turn signal, or even brake lights. If I stop and restart the car after a rest, all works well, but I have to push or jump start the car because the battery is drained.

The problem may be related to the state of battery charge when I start the car the first time. The last two times the problem has surfaced were 1) after I had the interior light on for a while and drained the battery while replacing door seals and 2) after the glove box light was inadvertantly left on over night.

Any ideas about whether something (batteries, regulator, etc.) is going bad, or is this normal for a low or drained battery?
