Why is my radio working like crap?

I just dug it out of a box that it's been in for 20 years, covered in dust. You'd think it would be perfect!

Well, that takes me back! I'm guessing all the years sitting in a garage cycling through hot/cold weather has a lot to do with it. It was fun finding a power cord and getting it working again, but I think I'll use a different radio to actually listen to.

Since there is a lot of static, I'm guessing the expansion/contraction of boards and components play a big part. Connections aren't what they were.
