  1. Here's a bit I plucked off the song poem website about AIR

    "While most of the major song-poem companies maintained their own studios, Jack Curry's Air label, located clear across the bottom of the U.S. map in Miami, neatly complemented Hudson's operation, with a label but no studio. Although still subcontracting masters from other song-poem production houses, Curry became one of Hudson's best customers, and many of the recordings on Air and its "subsidiary" custom labels were Lee Hudson productions" Lee Hudson had a studio in Northridge California, but no label. I wonder where Jack Got this one from?

    According to the song poem website Air was also Hasil Adkins first label. He was billed as "Hasil Adkins and his Happy Guitar". I think it's always best if your guitar is happy.
