GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 01 Jul 21

Whatever their reason(s) the Asch-Stinson distribution deal took effect 23 January 1943 [Goldsmith]. The new year is the start of the second half of the Asch Recordings discography, the part 'offically' sold to Stinson Trading in 1945; who will nevertheless bootleg/fugace the first half anyway.

Here is Stinson/Arkino exec Noel Meadow buying the Stanley outright and also adding the Playhouse theater to the Arkino chain. According the FBI's Silvermaster file (above) Herbert Harris managed at total of 144 theater concessions. This in addition to Stinson Trading Co's several wholesale distributors:

55th St. Playhouse is now under new management, having been taken over by Noel Meadow, former newspaperman and publicity agent, who recently acquired the Stanley Theatre.
