I'd love to have one of those tube radios. You can get the tubes online to replace the bad ones.

Back in high school, in electronics "shop" class they had one that only needed a couple of tubes and some TLC on the cabinet and it would have been as good as new. I was told that they were going to great rid of all the "junk" items that were in the "to be repaired" pile and if I wanted the old radio I could have it. I came in on clean up day ready to pick up my radio and the class before mine had not only chucked it into the dumpster but then proceeded to turn it into "target practice" for any heavy item they had to throw out... I was cheesed.. I suppose I could find one on ebay or something but nothing would have beat "free for the taking"
