Wasn't there some discussion here about the old cable TV systems? Here
are two pictures of the switch that they used to mount on the windowsill.


we have still got an old rediffussion cable pole at the bottom of our
lane, now about 5 feet diameter covered in 2 foot thick ivy.

I cannot see these, but the ones I used to see had two knobs, one marked a b
c etc, and the other was a kind of rotary switch with no clicks for the
volume of the selected channel.
On some later sets things became a little more sophisticated in the sound


School classrooms and hospital wards used to have a wired radio
distribution system with a multi way channel switch and a second
switch for volume, resistive ladder probably. I wouldn't be at all
surprised if the NHS still has some working examples!
