Patience

What a great picture !

In those days people had more patience to listen (or look) to their favourite music. What a difference with the way we listen to music nowerdays, you just download hundreds of songs on your cell phone etc. without any effort by yourself

The Wurlitzer Model 750 could play 24 records and hold 24 selections. It was the first year with the so called bubble tubes. Number produced - 18.500

The Mills Panoram Soundies machine is for sale here in Holland

Keep up the good work

Before MTV there was the Mills Panoram.

Fully restored, and very cool indeed:
