My Juke Box Hero

My husband bought a jukebox - dirt cheap! - from a fellow who said his girlfriend wouldn't let him keep it anymore. I am thinking the fellow ditched the wrong thing, because it's a real 1970s vintage box of fantastic topped with awesomesauce, and it works perfectly, too!

Here's a link to a photo: http://www.jukebox-world.de/Forum/Archiv/AMI/AMI_R-82.htm

It's the "Black Magic" one, on the right.

It came loaded with 100 records -- everything from Frank Sinatra, Conway Twitty, and Elvis, to the Beatles and Journey. Some great one-hit wonders, and some classics of country and rock-n-roll, many of them on the classic original labels like Decca, Parrot, and Apple. Too cool!

I think I might love your husband, just a little. Also, I'm wondering if I could convince my husband to get me a jukebox.

Definitely too cool for you. You should ship it to me. Even now, I'm thinking about how I'll rearrange my furniture to make it fit. That item deserves to be the centerpiece of a home.

Love,
Lola

I am so jealous now I can't even think. Oh, if I had only nabbed all those 45's from my parent's house- I'd be sending them to you right now.

You'll totally let me down if you don't have a dance party with this sucker- soon.
