Fun Fact Quote
In April 1976, Lorne Michaels, producer of Saturday Night
Live, jokingly made an on-air offer to the Beatles, hoping
that they would reunite on SNL. He remarked that if
all four Beatles were to appear on SNL, he would
give them $3000 to be split four ways:
"You divide it up any way you want.  If you want to
give  less to Ringo, that's up to you."
 
Did You Know?
In 1939, jukeboxes used 30 million records.  In 1942, 60 million
records went into jukeboxes, which accounted for half of all
records produced that year! By the mid-'40s, competition
from local radio, network radio, home phonographs
and other sources began to cut into the jukebox
scene. So, jukeboxes morphed into very ornate
machines.  In 1946, "The Wurlitzer 1015,"
complete with its bubble tubes, sold more
than 60,000 units - making it the most
famous Jukebox of all time.
