fadedsignals:

Faded Signals introduces a new source for radio-related advertising, articles and photos. This is U.S. Radio, a trade publication that apparently was in business from 1957 to 1961. You can find a complete archive on David Gleason’s outstanding American Radio History website.
This ad from 1961 welcomes newly inaugurated President John Kennedy and his administration to Washington and invites them to listen to WWDC-AM. Here’s an earlier entry about the station’s history.

The Cinebox was a coin operated Italian 16mm film projector juke box type machine invented in 1959 that appeared in Europe to rival the French made Scopitone that appeared in 1960. 

In 1963 it appeared in the USA and was retitled Colorama in 1965. Each juke box provided three minutes of sound film for 25 cents with 40 titles available at a time on the machine. (Wikipedia)
