A Flashback To Background Music Of The 1960’s

Posted by John on August 19th, 2010

Long before Custom Channels was delivering music to stores and businesses over the Internet, there was the Seeburg 1000, a jukebox playing specially made vinyl records to supply music to modern businesses in the 1960’s.

The philosophy was the same back then as it is today: music makes for a better shopping, retail and business environment. It’s just done in much more efficient way today with customized music and messaging over the Internet. That’s another thing in-store music in the 1960’s lacked: messaging.


Watch this short video (and read the description) to see how businesses got “background music” before there were DSL and T1 connections and before desktop and lap top computers in every restaurant and retail location.
