RCA 816k Console Radio, circa l938  c.l999 catskillki 
oThe Mighty and Magnificent glowing filaments of the
5u4 pairs of fullwave vacuum diodes... the pulsating fine blue glow about the plates of the pair of 6L6's, often to the beat of the bass of the music.. 

The flickering of the magic eye tube.. Ah.. the wonder of the radio  mindplays as a child gazes thru the slots in the cabinet, the faceplate of the dial...
one day I'll replace those 5U4s with diodes to save
on the heat and amperage on an aging power transformer....
