Paywalls and platforms
Is a jukebox a paywall or is it a platform or is it a platform with a paywall?
All I know is that this twentieth century technology was a great way to get some personal enjoyment in an era that offered very little “on demand” choice for entertainment beyond a book or a magazine. Even recorded music played at home involved multiple steps to go from silence to bliss.
The amount of money it cost to get instant gratification from a jukebox always seemed worth the price to me. Not just in sonic amusement but in the realm of control. Being my own DJ was a rare event indeed.
Got change for a dollar?
