Ooh, that's a very uncommon radio. You should grab that!

Dual purpose stuff like this reminds me of things like a bronze horse with a clock in the belly ... to place on a mantle.
I used to see these in people's homes a lot back in the 50s.
I never understood why these two items were paired. When you need to see the time... it helps to also see a horse? Or when you want to look at a horse you need a clock to be sure you don't stare too long? :-)

The lamp and radio, sort of makes a little more sense.

I guess the idea was for those moments when you sit down in your comfy chair to read you turn on the lamp... but you forgot to also turn on your radio and you don't want to have to get up to do it now. ... lol
