A while back I
get a call from a fellow who runs a very respectable company in nearby
Van Nuys. He says he's
got this Rockola CD-8 Bubbler jukebox that he can only remember
playing one song on since he bought it some 14 years ago. I'm
curious and it's only a couple of miles away.
He meets me in
his warehouse and points to it over in a corner, covered in plastic
wrap and strapped to a pallet. We unwrap it and lift it off the
pallet. It’s beautiful, but dusty. He hands me a key that he's
recently gotten from the factory in Torrance, CA.
I open it up
and see that there’s still a CD in the play position. He says
that must be the one he's been missing all these years. Seems he
got it brand new from a local pool table store. It was on the
showroom floor playing at the time. He had it delivered, played
part of one CD and turned it off.
afterwards he moved into another home and placed the jukebox in the
back of his warehouse never to be played again. I wasn't sure
about his story, but the price was right and the unit looked great.
I got it back
to the shop and covered it up. Only recently did I get a chance
to examine it. The insides were as dusty as the outsides with an
extremely fine silt. Then I remembered he ran a wood molding
company. Thus it was wood dust.
I covered the
player and hit the whole machine with the compressor. Wow!
It really did look brand new. But I was still curious if the
fellow had only played one CD since 1995. So I punched up the
code and asked the computer how many actual CDs it had played.
(Keep in mind, this reading can not be cleared). It was just
over 3,000 plays. It was manufactured 11-3-94.
But if you
remember this was playing in the store when he bought it. Yet
3,000 plays is nothing if you consider that people who rent jukeboxes
for weekend parties put 500 plays on one in a few days. We
actually rent out this model ourselves through our other company, JUKEBOXES
FOR RENT ̉.
So here we
have a real beauty with barley any mileage on it from an era when
jukebox manufacturers weren't cutting corners to save a buck. It
was in it's own personal time warp waiting for me to come along and
about the Rockola reproduction "Bubbler" verses the
Wurlitzer "Bubbler" is that even the top section has
revolving color wheels. These are glorious in the dim light of a
You can also burn your own
