« "Whom do you write your poems for?" [by Katha Pollitt] | Main | The Expulsion [by Katha Pollitt] »

August 05, 2009


Jukebox -- the very sound of the word makes me happy. Thank you for this terrific post.

Favorite jukebox reference in a song lyric: "I got the routine / So drop another nickel in the machine / I'm feelin' so bad /I wish you'd make the music dreamy and sad." Lyric by Johnny Mercer, music by Harold Arlen. "One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)."

Yes, this brings back memories. I love the jukeboxes that are on diner tables. Loved sitting with Victoria and Maudy singing along with "Moon River"

Thanks for the cool article about the Jukebox. I had no idea that Louis T. Glass would use listening tubes that looked like stethoscopes when operating the machine. I'm kind of interested to learn what these looked like and how Glass used them.

Thanks for your comment. I do not have any further information.

on when I
left the house

of coming back
ten hours later
