listening booth, Wallachs Music City, 1953 by Manitoba Museum of Finds Art, via Flickr - There were listening booths in many record stores in the 1950s and 1960s. This one is in Hollywood, CA. I've listened to music in those booths MANY times in the 1960s. Also in Sound City in Canoga Park, CA. You could take a stack of albums in there and listen to them before you bought anything...and you weren't required to buy anything.

    My dad would take me with him. I'd put the earphones on inside the booth, and listen to jazz and big band music. This was the neatest environment for music lovers. I think about this fairly frequently!
