50: Jukebox Collector

Jukeboxes have fallen out of favor as time and technology marches on, but they still serve as reminders of a different time with respects to music and culture. Berry Bell shares information about jukeboxes and walks us through his collection on this week’s show. Put a few quarters in the machine and listen to learn more about the “jutebox” confusion, the Gullah roots of the machine’s nickname, and how jukeboxes changed radio programming forever.
