It looks like someone said "I can install a radio in my phonograph myself".

I think you’re right, although (and it’s hard to be certain from the small Craigslist image) it looks like they did a good job of it.

Out of curiosity—anyone have an idea what it might cost to fix this machine?

The Freed-Eisemann model 30 dates from 1926, and the phonograph would appear to be several years older, so it looks like an owner conversion. I think that this sort of conversion was not uncommon at the time, and helped to preserve the investment in the phonograph.
