Harlem - Week Of 7/30/07 - King Records Story Pt: 1



Part 1

Syd Nathan launched KING RECORDS in 1944 as a country & western label in his native Cincinnati. He controlled every aspect of the business from recording, record pressing, album jacket printing and even distribution. He got into the R&B market in 1947 with the signing of Bull Moose Jackson. For the next 2 weeks, Matt The Cat digs deep into the satellite vaults to feature the hit, misses and influence of this "king of all labels". There will be vocal group sounds from The Midnighters, The Swallows, The Dominoes and the "5" Royales as well as down-home R&B from Bull Moose, James Brown, Little Willie John and Freddy King. This is part 1 of a 2 part special on The King Records Story.

Monday 7/30 @ 1pm EST
Tuesday 7/31 @ 9pm PST and midnight EST
Friday 8/03 @ 6pm EST
