More About the Author

Adrian Horn is a Design and Cultural Historian and writer of historical fiction. His intention is to bring to life past events and to give a voice to those who are no longer in a position to do so.

Product Description


Richard Hoggart believed that the juke box was a harbinger of all the worst features of American mass culture. Using a range of primary and secondary sources, from the trade press of the music industry to memoirs and interviews, and drawing on an established sociological and historical literature on postwar youth cultures, Adrian Horn has produced an innovative and scholarly work. He charts the cultural impact of juke boxes in Britain in meticulous detail, and sheds much needed light also on the cultural worlds of 'the juke box boys' and youth cafes of postwar Britain.' -- David Fowler, University of Cambridge.

Format: Paperback
The book gave me an apprecation of the influence jukeboxes had on young people in the 40s and 50s . A useful book in understanding the British approach to leisure time in those times
