Yes, tube gear is making a come-back! I noticed in a radio trade journal back in the '90's where Manley Labs started advertising as building tube amps and radio gear again, because artists and audiophiles wanted that warm sound again!
By the way, being an old radio lover myself, it is widely known that "real radios glow in the dark" (just like that old Zenith bakelite table radio did when I listened to KAAY as a kid)!
