A data acquisition and transmission system for surveying a plurality of remotely location jukeboxes via telephone lines. A data collector, operatively associated with each jukebox, includes a song identification arrangement and storage memory for determining the number of times a particular song is played over a given period of time. At regular intervals, a central station contacts each data collector via telephone and requests the stored information which is subsequently transmitted via telephone lines to a central computer which tabulates and stores the information. The collected data is then processed to provide a distribution scale useful in determining the proper allocation of royalty fees received from jukebox licensing fees.
