Yes to question
The Wave Band knob should have Gold, Red & Green dots for the MW, LW, and FM bands. The Blue dot is the gram position.
Looking at the knob from the right of the radio then turning fully clockwise should be MW (yellow dot), then Next click is LW (red Dot) then next click is FM (green dot)
The odd thing is the colours on the dial do not go in the same order as the coloured dots on the waveband knob.
Do you have the little gold pip which indicated which colour you are on or is it missing.

One point to watch is dont strain the knob if it is very stiff on these sets the plastic can go very brittle and crack. If the shaft of the knob does crack it can be repaired by building up a good layer of good quality epoxy around the shaft. I dont use quick setting araldite I find it useless and does not set fully hard.
