As a kid, I remember watching Jukeboxes in local Pizzarias, and was wondering how they gota machine to know which record was selected, and how it remembered multiple selection choices.
My first machine was a Seeburg AY-160 I bought at a Coin-op show in Anaheim California. I paid $600for this machine in very good working condition. At the show, I asked about manuals, and was shown another booth that had operating and repair manuals. I thought I was in heaven!I even purchased a box of Elvis 45's.
I brought it home, by laying it on its back (not recommended!) and not getting the machine ready to transport. Not the smartest moves, but I didn't know any better at the time.
I unloaded it at home by myself by pulling it out of the pickup bed, and resting the Jukebox on its rear wheels. I then tilted the machine all the way up, and rolled it into the house. (OK, I had to lift the right and left sides of the machine to get the wheels over a step and threshold).
I moved it to the gameroom, and plugged it in, turned it on, and fed it quarters. My 3 year old son got the bug too, and couldn't resist pushing the buttons to get songs to play.
Since then, I have learned a lot.
