What you have there is a varactor (a.k.a. varicap) tuned circuit. It is analog.
It's cheaper to use that kind of circuit than to use a tuning capacitor. It works, but unfortunately it can be rather unstable.
This was/is the problem with the GE/RCA Superadio 3.

A shame-that's a nice looking radio.

Sounds like a mechanically tuned DSP with the soft mute cutting in and out as you tune. I can't stand DSP radios for that reason

If someone were to make a radio with that styling, with good performance, I'd buy it without hesitating. I love circular tuning dials.
