How are you dataBinding your RBL?
Here is a link trying to do that:

Other option is to use a DataBound Control like GV/Repeater and place a RadioButton and an Image Control.

Im not sure how to implement the example in the url. This is how I am populating the radiolist...

 if (!IsPostBack)
            {
                dt = BMHAccess.GetProducts();
                PopulateList(RadioButtonList1, dt);
               
            }
 
private void PopulateList(RadioButtonList list, DataTable products)
    {
        list.DataSource = products;
        list.DataTextField = "Name";
        list.DataValueField = "ProductId";
        list.DataBind();
 
    }

From where does the image come?
i.e. how do you get url to your image?

Yes ..you will need some mapping between the images and corresponding products.
So say you have a column imageFileName in your DataTable then your PopulateList function should look like this:
 private void PopulateList(RadioButtonList list, DataTable dt)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < dt.Rows.Count; i++)
        {
           // here 'images' corresponds to the folder in your application
            string imgsrc = "images/" + dt.Rows[i]["imageFileName"].ToString();;
            string value = dt.Rows[i]["ProductId"].ToString();
            list.Items.Add(new ListItem(String.Format("<img src=\"{0}\">", imgsrc), value));
        }
    }

Note: you cannot display the Name here.

ok I almost got it!
this displays correctly
 list.Items.Add(new ListItem(String.Format("<img src=\"{0}\">" +  " "+dt.Rows[i]["Name"].ToString(), imgsrc), value));

but now my string manipulation is wrong... because of this ("<img src=\"{0}\"> stuff can you help me fix this string manipulation to correspond witn what I got


        string sFormat = RadioButtonList1.SelectedItem.ToString();
        string[] nameprice;
        nameprice = sFormat.Split('-');
 
        btnTodaysSelections.ItemName = nameprice[0].TrimEnd();
        btnTodaysSelections.ItemNumber = RadioButtonList1.SelectedValue;
        btnTodaysSelections.Amount = decimal.Parse(nameprice[1].Substring(2));

Try like this ...
list.Items.Add(new ListItem(String.Format("<img src=\"{0}\">", imgsrc) + dt.Rows[i]["Name"].ToString(), value));

oh i see what you mean:
try this:
     char[] ch = {'>','-'};
       string[] s1 = s.Split(ch);      
        string itemname = s1[1];
        string amount = s1[2];
