My father (1915-1959) was a juke-box operator in Orangeburg, S.C. and always referred to the machines as piccolos. He was known as the "piccolo man." His locations were about half white and half black. For us, it was purely an oral usage: I don't remember ever seeing the word written down. George Dorrill dorrill[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]selu.edu
