Wurlitzer

Richard Myrland was a wizard, just as his name suggested! As a product designer for Wurlitzer, Dick created the famed 1050 juke box. With his devotion to the “Wurlitzer Way” credo, he, as much as anyone at the Wurlitzer Company, cultivated the warm sense of family within the company and along the way (1953-1981) became one of the company’s best loved employees. His NAMM Oral History interview was completed on August 7, 2003 on the occasion of the Wurlitzer reunion outside of Chicago.
