The radio programming is a rather thinly veiled allusion to Hary Reser's Clicquot Club Eskimos, who graced the very early NBC radio of the 1920's and 30's.
The radio itself is a bit of an anachronism - I don't think the first all-in-one tabletop radio (tubes and speaker) was marketed until about 1930 by Philco. Prior to that, tabletops generally consisted of a coffin-style box and a separate speaker. I always found the classic cathedral style radios appealing, however, and I wanted to draw one. My conscience may compel me to replace it with something a little more accurate when it comes time to print a Volume 2 book, though.
