note: I don't know much about radios, but I'm good with electronics and I'm handy, so I can do most of the work if it is required to fix this thing.

I found this old radio in my garage, I took it out, played with it, I thought it was really cool. I picked up a station, but the antenna didn't really seem to be picking up much. I turned it off and then back on, I switched to change the station and I heard a *click* inside the right side of the radio, I'm pretty sure it's not the speaker, but it could possibly be the antenna.
any ideas?

Thanks guys

SOP would be to change the Electrolytics, and then try to operate it again. You didn't specify which band it received the one station on, or if it's working on both bands.
probably for FM you'd need at least a short length of wire (several feet) attached to one or both of the FM Ant terminals.
