Juke Box Gets New Look (Feb, 1948)

Juke Box Gets New Look

A nickel in the slot will buy you one televised prize-fight round if the neighborhood tavern is hep to the latest thing in juke boxes. This is a chrome-and-mirror-bedecked coin phonograph, made by the Videograph Corp., of New York, with a 12-inch television screen added. You can choose your own records in the usual way, but the manager decides whether your five cents will buy a three-minute glimpse of television. And since he operates the controls, he also picks the program. If jive, wrestling, and boxing fans are gathered in one place, he’d better be a Solomon.
