RCA 816k Console Radio, circa l938  c.l999 catskillki  
oThe main tuning knobs, coarse and fine,
are coaxially arranged and controlled by the  "Big Lou" of all tuning knobs,  This beast is about 2 inches in diameter,
and is ribbed for your listening and tuning pleasure.

As if that's not enough, by pushing one of the eight tuning buttons, a fractional horsepower ac squirrelcage motor
rotates the knob forth and back frantically.  Auto reverse..even!

Mebbe this is why this model radio was the favorite of rich bored houswives in the 30's... Oh yeah.. It played dance music..too....
