Believe it or not, it wasn't too long ago that the entertainment people had was that radio on that table. There were no TV's, just a radio, where people would sing, and have shows. It was easier on the actors as well, because they could be really, really ugly and still be employed. Each night dad would sit down on his chair with is pipe, mom would knit, and we would just sit in front of that thing on the floor. Sometimes eating in front of it with a radio dinner.
