Scott Bradlee on PostModern Jukebox

Scott Bradlee, creator of PostModern Jukebox, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss how the company is taking modern pop songs and giving them a vintage twist that is reminiscent of the era of vinyl records. 

Bradley describes PostModern Jukebox as “a community of artists”.  This community has featured singer Addie Hamilton and American Idol alum Haley Reinhart.

“I wanted to create this alternate universe where today’s pop music would have existed many years ago,” he says. The modern songs that the company chooses are reimagined as though they were released back in the days of vinyl records and Motown.

Morristown Game Vault

By Nick Bougades


Do you miss the old-school gaming days of Dig Dug, Galaga, and Pole Position? Morristown’s new arcade on South Street offers a throwback experience for all ages!

Set in an old bank, the Morristown Game Vault is filled with vintage arcade-style video games, pinball machines, and even classic consoles like Super Nintendo.

Differing from the traditional token-driven arcade, at the Morristown Game Vault you can pay $7 per half hour or $10 per hour for unlimited play on all your favorites among over 90 games available in the vault area.

Aside from being the perfect spot for private parties, the Morristown Game Vault also holds a Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament every Thursday. Whether it’s for a whole afternoon of gaming or just killing some time before a dinner reservation, the Morristown Game Vault is a great spot for some family fun!
