GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 04 Jan 21

Note: There is still no Stinson Records label; Herbert Harris or any else to justify a war-time shellac ration, as yet. The second record label in the mix was founded by Moses Asch.

Three different Asch record labels usually get lumped together in the histories. The first and rarest of the trio is “Asch Recording Studios.” This was a direct continuation of his contract for WEVD-AM's new transmitter and was located in their new 46th Street broadcast studio.

New recording company, ASCH Recording Studios, entered wax field this week with headquarters in New York….”
