Use it or Lose it?

This thing is in the middle of our dining room wall. It has an AM radio, and an intercom system. The radio works, the intercom ... worked once on move in day. There's only one speaker by the front door that I can find. I can't decide if we should rip it out or just leave it. Right now it's totally covered by the monster desk/hutch combo, but there's a chance we will someday not want a huge desk there. We're in the process of stripping wall paper, priming, and picking a paint color. We need to decide soon. What would you do?

You absolutely MUST keep this.

OK- I just found your blog and have to tell you that we have the same intercom/radio system all through our 1969 house! I'm not quite sure what to do with it either - for now, we are leaving it there just because we don't have time to patch a bunch of holes all over the house!

I ended up having it taken out. It was charming, but rather large in the center of the dining room wall. My husband wasn't thrilled when he found it, but the patch wasn't bad. Just one hole. ... Now when we go to take the one out of the bricks by the front door it's going to be trickier.
