If the antenna is for the VHF band and is free of rust and in good
condition (all the elements are straight and in place), it should work.
When you put it back in service, be sure to replace the coax so you can
ensure good reception.

A lot of VHF TV antennae are also advertised as FM. I sometimes use
rabbit-ears for my FM radios at home.
