Changes in Entertainment
When 1933 came around, the popularity of jukeboxes grew because of the Repel of Prohibition movement that was happening. Jukeboxes were placed in drinking establishments as forms of entertainment and due to this, not only did the popularity of jukeboxes increase, but so did record sales.
Later on down the road, the record industry started making it big off the back of the film industry. With films being very popular at the time, the record industry was able to make a large profit by selling recordings of movie stars. As this started to happen, Hollywood decided to come up with what they called Musicals, which allowed them to make a great profit while it also extended the fame of both the film and recording industry.
Underground Artists like Duck Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Lionel Hampton as well as many others took jazz music and played it in a way that hinted towards new kinds of bebop as well as new kinds of cool jazz. Country artists like Roy Acuff, Bill Monroe and Gene Autry changed the traditional country music into what was known as modern country, western music and bluegrass.
Soon characteristic Underground music was making it's way into mainstream music, producing top favorite underground artists like the Andrew Sisters and Guy Lombardo. As it became popular, record producers had to start choosing which songs produced from the underground would be okay for the public to hear, leaving behind only the music that was clean enough to be broadcast to everyone.
