Nice machines. Whole lot of engineering going on there. They didn't have any of those mini machines that you'd see, like, in a diner. With the selections and buttons at each table and the actual record-containing machine located somewhere else.

I have vivid memories of feeding coins into those machines, and the small joy of having a quarter to offer up cuz you'd get a "free" song or two.

Some of those Wurlitzers got pretty fancy, with liquid-filled colored tubes and bubbles and such.

Highly memory provoking. That well done with that nod towards one of the beset-selling singles of all time.
