Profile: A prominent Midwestern American record label that operated in Cincinnati, Ohio from 1943 until 1968.

1944 to 1968:
King Records, Inc.
1540 Brewster Ave.
Cincinnati, Ohio 45207

Founded by Syd Nathan, it initially focused on the Midwestern country music market, but proceeded to expand to pop, rock, R&B, soul, and other genres while working closely with several sister labels, which included Bethlehem Records, DeLuxe, Federal Records , Queen , and several others. During this time, it operated alongside Royal Plastics Corporation, a pressing plant, and King Studios, a recording studio, from adjacent buildings on Brewster Avenue in Cincinnati


Earl Bostic (April 25, 1913 – October 28, 1965) was an American jazz alto saxophonist and a pioneer of the post-war American rhythm and blues style. He had a number of popular hits such as "Flamingo", "Harlem Nocturne", "Temptation", "Sleep", "Special Delivery Stomp" and "Where or When", which all showed off his characteristic growl on the horn. He was a major influence on John Coltrane.
