1. that is pretty much how i would do it

even the squirt of contact cleaner in the tuning cap.

the tube probably blew first, and then the radio was put away. those electrolytic caps will degrade with time even if the set is unused. using the old tube socket is a neat trick.

i don't remember the brand "air castle." you?

2. I would be interested in what/how,

but man, a guy wearing a hat indoors, drinking wine, and acting super dramatic had me out in 15 seconds.

Old electronics are very cool though.
