The homes in my neighborhood were built in the 1950s. Most of the people who own these homes played around the construction as they were being built; many are WWII Veterans (thank you). The night before trash, on 2 separate occasions, I found an old radio cabinet in really nice shape, although gutted. Now, I dont know what to do with them. I happen to be a radio personality with 4 different shows oddly enough.. and now, I dont know whether to make old into something mod and cool, or sell to someone who restores them. Also thrown out from the same house were caddies for Tung-Sol electron tubes.

This one here, I can't find a positive ID anywhere online, but it does have what seems to be a model number right on the front placquard of 8484AJ.
