HTML Question

html form radio buttons & php

I've made a html using html, and it contains some radio buttons. How would I know which button is selected? I need to send the selected option to my email, but I don't quite understand how it would be incorporated into my php script. Thank you all so much!

Below is my php script:

<?php

$to = 'dinefour4@gmail.com';
$subject = 'The subject';

$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$option = $_POST['place']; <-- is this the way to know the selected button?
$mobile = $_POST['mobile'];

$message = <<<EMAIL

$name
$email
$mobile

EMAIL;

$header = '$email';

if($_POST) {
mail($to, $subject, $message, $header);
}

?>


<div id="signup">
<form action="signup.php" method="POST" onsubmit="return validate()">
<label name = "sutitle"> <font size="7"> sign up here!</font></label> <br/>
<label ><font size="5" >Name:</font>
<input type="text" name="name" required ></label><br />
<label ><font size="5">Mobile:</font>
<input type="text" name="mobile" required></label><br />
<label ><font size="5">Email: </font>
<input type="text" name="email" required></label><br />
<label> <font size="5">Where to meet your Friends?</font><br/>
<input type="radio" name="place" value="revelle" > <font size="5">Revelle </font><br>
<input type="radio" name="place" value="muir"> <font size="5">Muir </font><br>
<input type="radio" name="place" value="warren"> <font size="5">Warren </font><br>
<input type="radio" name="place" value="erc" > <font size="5">ERC </font><br>
<input type="radio" name="place" value="village"> <font size="5">The Village </font><br>
</label>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>

 <?php

$to = 'dinefour4@gmail.com';
$subject = 'The subject';

$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$option = ""
if(isset($_POST['place']))
{
    $option = $_POST['place']; 
}
$mobile = $_POST['mobile']; 

$message = <<<EMAIL

$name 
$email
$mobile

EMAIL;

$header = '$email';

if($_POST) {
    mail($to, $subject, $message, $header);
}

?>

<div id="signup">
<form action="signup.php" method="POST" onsubmit="return validate()">
<label name = "sutitle"> <font size="7"> sign up here!</font></label> <br/>
<label ><font size="5" >Name:</font>
<input type="text" name="name" required ></label><br />
<label ><font size="5">Mobile:</font>
<input type="text" name="mobile" required></label><br />
<label ><font size="5">Email: </font>
<input type="text" name="email" required></label><br />
<label> <font size="5">Where to meet your Friends?</font><br/>
    <input type="radio" name="place" value="revelle" > <font size="5">Revelle  </font><br>
    <input type="radio" name="place" value="muir"> <font size="5">Muir  </font><br>
    <input type="radio" name="place" value="warren"> <font size="5">Warren </font><br>
    <input type="radio" name="place" value="erc" > <font size="5">ERC </font><br>
    <input type="radio" name="place" value="village"> <font size="5">The Village </font><br>
</label>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">

If the radio button is selected, then it will set in '$option' variable. Otherwise '$option' variable will be empty.
