History of the Jukebox

The word Jook is an old African-American term, meaning to dance. It has also been suggested that the Southern jute crop fields had workers who frequented road houses or makeshift bars, which were called juke (or Jute) joints, where these early Jukeboxes would appear. Whatever the origin, the juke joint was a spot for dancing, and the jukebox provided the music. By 1927, The Automatic Music Instrument Company created the world’s first electrically amplified multi selection phonograph. With this amplification, suddenly the Jukebox could compete with a large orchestra, for the cost of a nickel. Prohibition assured the jukeboxes success, as every underground speakeasy needed music, but could not afford a live band. Tavern owners were privileged to have a jukebox, which drew in customers, and was provided by an operator at no charge.

The importance of the jukebox to Bluesmen, and the White Country and Rockabilly artists at Sun Records cannot be underestimated. Much of early radio was live concerts staged at fashionable hotels, like the ritzy Peabody Hotel’s Skyway broadcasts where a young Sam Phillips started his broadcasting career.
