Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Goldner (1918 - May 15, 1970) was an American record label owner and promoter. He worked, amongst others, with The Crows, The Flamingos, The Cleftones, The Shangri-Las, The Teenagers, The Chantels, Little Richard and Lou Christie. He had a son named Cary and a wife named Grace. His grandson George Goldner, son of Cary Goldner, was named after him. Goldner was born in New York, and originally made his living as a garment dealer. His love for Latin music led to him running dance halls, beginning in the early 1940s. In the late 1940s, Golder formed his first record label, Tico Records. In promoting his records, he resorted to paying DJs at radio stations, and this widespread practice came to be known as payola. Tito Puente was the most famous recording artist on Tico Records.
