Exhibit shares efforts to preserve Detroit's musical past

February 04, 2019 - 6:14 AM

DETROIT - A new exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum has a jukebox salvaged from a former beauty shop and a stage from an old jazz venue.

"Salvaging Sound" shares the story and preservation efforts of the Detroit Sound Conservancy . An opening reception is scheduled for Friday.

The jukebox is a refurbished Wurlitzer High-Fidelity & Stereophonic 2500. It comes from Jordan's Barber & Beauty, near the original home of Motown Records, where it had been since the 1960s with records still inside. The stage is from the Blue Bird Inn, which the non-profit group plans to buy and restore.

Other items on display include photographs, posters, oral history recordings and music. The free exhibit is open until April 7.
