1972 Seeburg Olympian 160

seebWe have been hard at work decorating and I thought I would share the jukebox we picked up. This is a 1972 Seeburg Olympian that offers 160 song selections.

Though this isn’t as collectable as earlier model jukeboxes, this is an affordable way to get that jukebox sound. Plus, it has a space age feel that goes great with our decor.

IMG_7935We chose to fill it with 70’s and 80’s music. It is a blast to crank this sucker up and hear it play.

The lava lamps you see flanking it are not old.  They are the largest ones I have have ever seen. I think they compliment the decor.

We love the way the concert posters look above the jukebox.

I really dig the purplish colors!

I have almost all the records ordered. I look forward to chilling out around this for hours listening to some great music!

They released three colors for this jukebox. I might be bias, but I like the purple one the most.

This jukebox has a unique selector key pad to select your music. This keypad looks like a phone dial pad.

I just ordered a CD that will allow me to print new label strips for the records we ordered.

  2. In 1972 I was nine years old. I remember going to older cousins’ “pads” and seeing décor just like in your pictures, the posters, area rugs, chairs, etc.(although never saw such a “groovy” jukebox). I loved it then and still love it now. You guys do an amazing job of creating the perfect “vibe”. Thank you for transporting me back to that wonderful time. I can’t wait to see more pictures of your space age “pad”!!!

  3. Outstanding job, that is one groovy looking room. I have that same jukebox, I love it. It looks & sounds great. I honestly think the 70s boxes look the best and in most cases they’re not super expensive. I’m working on a similar room, I just picked up a 1970 weltron 8-track player, it kinda looks like a space helmet that is now sitting on top of the seeburg. Fun stuff.
