...or take those caps out and install a modern line filter somewhere
Also, if you do install a third ground wire (which I DO recommend), you
be able to power the radio on a circuit that is protected with a GFI
Fault Interrupter). It'll pretty much pop the GFI every time.

You are kidding, right? If there is that much leakage current, then the
problem should fixed before adding the three wire line cord. There
is no reason to pop a GFI.
Also, the maximum value for the bypass cap, which should be UL
rated, is about .015 mfd.
