Put an appropriately rated fuse between the variac and the radio.  If  
there is a direct short in the radio, the current going through the small wire  
in the variac can burn out the winding.  Protect your variac.  Don't  ask me 
how I know.

get  to 100 volts -- and by then it may be too late. If you have a variac
that  measures current or some other ammeter that is always very  useful.
