In continuation of Mani's masterly summing up
re Sri Vesel's question,I may just add a few lines.
The only traditional reference to Radha in Sri
Bhagavatham is taken to be the phrase-
<anaya-radhito> in the Rasakrida chapter.When
Krishna disappears suddenly and the gopis go
in search of him they find indication that one
girl seemed to have been with him.That phrase
with the possible pun on the letters "radh"
is taken as the hint that the favorite of
Krishna's was Radha.

The later Brahma Vaivarta Purana deals extensively
with Radha and even details their marriage.
