Clearly there aren't any radio old timers around the board today! "mmF" is in fact the same as pF and comes from the days before digital technology brought us pico-second timing. I think Pico came into the electronics world fairly historically recently (say, within the last 40 years), whereas mmF dates back to early radio. You would often find variable capacitors (used for tuning) listed in a range of mmF.
