Would it not be better to just have them on the normal top menu. This way there is no need to code anything.
Follow the steps for my Audiobooks views (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQ1Y9MoTBrM&hd=1 )
But replace anything that would have the name or tag "AudioBook" with "Radio Show" (or Radio Shows).
Then to just re tag all your mp3/mp4/what ever audio files you have that are radio shows with a 'genre' or "Radio Show".
This way you don't need an Audio menu item and you can just turn it off in the skin settings.
You will end up with a menu like this
---Movies---TV Shows---Audiobooks---Radio Shows---Weather---Shutdown---
I Hope that makes sense
@ KiSUAN Thanks for taking a look

And since my other libraries, Movies and TV, use submenus I'd like to have my audio the same way if possible so that my home menu just has Audio, Movies, TV.
Also, at present I can't open the album information page ("i") within playlists launched from the home menu.

That is true. You can't use the album information page.
But why would you wish to use ("i")? All info about an audio book is already shown. That is if you have set it up right. The only bit of info you don't see is what format it is in. I Am sure there is more fileds or ID3 tags to read info from. But we don't have a defineing standerd as of yet. And until the XBMC dev team build in full Audiobook support. We have to make do with fudging the "Album.nfo" a bit.

oh well.. I did say I was not sure. But on a side note. You can still do that by going to the normal "Music/Audio" library. Oh wait, That's what you are trying to get rid off. This will take some thinking about.
