I got to talking with Jerry Williams about an old Juke Box I restored, and thought
some of you might be interested in seeing it. It's a '61 AMI Continental.
It holds 100 45rpm, or 7" 33 1/3rpm, and plays both sides, so is called a '200 Select'.
I bought it in '95, and restored it over a 3 week period.
I left the '75 Texas sticker on the dome; the last time it was licensed to play in a bar.
As it looked in my den in San Antonio, TX (the fur football was a joke :-) - The back open; not mine, but the same kind.
Pick a song from the titleboard, then select a letter A-K (there's no 'I'), and a number 1-20 (11-20 not shown)
Here's a video I did for Jerry, of it playing Brenda Lee singing 'One Step At A Time', her first hit, at age 12. Click it.
Please note it was shot with my camera, so it ain't da best, and the audio kinda sucks; also, please excuse the shaky hands.
I also have a Seeburg Library Unit, also a '200 Select', that the bartender would play on the back bar.
You can also see the Wallbox that matches the AMI, and that RCA 45rpm plug-in we all had.
Customers would select a song from this book, and the bartender would flip the switches to make it play.
