I'm trying to display the channel entry category with {categories}{category_name}{/categories} but nothing shows up. I'm assuming that the channel:form somehow interferes with the channel:entries loop.

{exp:channel:form channel="message_on_hold" secure_return="yes" return="order/moh-checkout/ENTRY_ID" member_data="yes" error_handling="inline" secure_action="yes" entry_id="{segment_3}"}
    {if option_value != ''}

      <input type="radio" name="moh_music[data][]" value="{option_value}"{checked}>

      {exp:channel:entries entry_id="{option_value}" dynamic="no" limit="1"}
         {categories}{category_name}{/categories} ### Doesn't work, shows nothing

is the channel you are linking to in the relationship field properly set up with a relivent category group (in Channel Preferences)?

Remember that within the channel_entries tag we are working on the child channel entries, not the parent!
