Assunto:  spin the knob
 
Mensagem:  to spin = to turn quickly
the knobs = the dials, the controls (on a radio, television, electrical device, etc.)

"To spin the knobs" usually means "to turn manually the dials/controls" on something electrical.  It could also mean "to experiment with" something electrical such as a radio.

If it has another meaning, I don't know what it could be.
