Tony Dodge, real name Alan Mark David, born in 1928 in New York City. David’s father worked for the New York Press.  Well, not exactly.  Essentially, he was a presser in New York’s Garment Center.  But, when asked what his father did for a living, he always said he was with the New York Press.  Of course, his mother was a housewife, no self-respecting woman worked outside of the home in those days.  The family moved to Bensonhurst, Brooklyn in 1935.

A Korean War Veteran, Alan David was with the United Service Organization and an entertainer in New York, City & Suburban Night Clubs.  Joined the Dr. Scholl Company in 1954.

Owner of Square Records was Marvin Silverman.

Artists on the Square label (1960-1962) : Joanne Carter, Bobby Reno, Bobby Lance, Dave Zaval, Johnny Crear, Alfred Rage, Renee Matthews, The Axcents, Matt Cord and Lee Randy
