I was looking for some knobs to use as replacements which lead me down a rabbit hole of the coolest antique radio collection I've ever encountered. Radio Guy Antiques is a slow website, unfortunately, but it's worth the hassle of waiting for the pages to load if you're into history.

Atwater-Kent created some of my favorite antique radios mostly because I appreciate their style. This one is niftiest I've seen with the rainbow tipped bulbs.

It's in excellent shape for something that appears to be made of plastic.

I actually had, and sold, one of these. I don't think they are that rare. Even though they weren't sold directly to the public, many stores sold their display model once they were done or went out of business. I picked mine up at an estate sale and the daughter said her grandfather simply asked the owner to get him one, or at least that's what she grew up hearing.

There are some interesting antique instruments too.
