A fully loaded, 1950s Rock-Ola jukebox belonging to British DJ Mike Read, will go up for auction next week as he sells off a record and music memorabilia collection worth more than £1 million. His 120,000 vinyl records spanning five decades are being billed as the most defining collection of its kind, while his memorabilia includes personal letters from the world’s top artists. Mr Read, 62, was forced to hand over his collection after he was declared bankrupt for the second time in February.
