 As I remember it from an electrician that married a 2nd time to my Aunt. hi.   
The ground lost its connection and the coiled wrapper became hot like a "hot 
plate" carrying the current.I was about 10 years old then and just wondering 
how a radio worked.

How did the metal wrapper get hot? Was current passing througgh it? The BX I 
had included a ground wire; maybe the earlier BX used the wrapper as the ground.
