Coins go into a jukebox and they make a slippery metallic sound as they slip down into it's guts, and a wonderful pleasing shing ding sound as they are registered, and the jukebox is alight and ready to fulfil it's purpose. It makes a wonderful crunchy sound as the selection buttons get pushed in, and lovely whir as the records spin around to the selection. The robot arms grabs the 45 and with a wonderful thunk lays the record on the platter. Then another great but more electric thunk as the heavy tonearm brings the needle violently onto the record. And then the hiss of anticipation as it tracks along the run in groove, moving ever closer to the explosion of music. So many wonderful sounds before the record even starts.
