The radio is sort of working. After powering it up using a variac to very slowly bring the mains power up to the nominal voltage the radio actually produces sounds from various medium and long wave radio stations. The short wave side of it doesn't appear to work yet though.

Things are not right in some areas, most notably some things are running warm/hot that shouldn't be. This is almost certainly due to leaky capacitors. I've decided to spend at least a little more time on it so the next job is to source replacement capacitors for the faulty ones.
