On this day in music history: June 4, 1942 - Capitol Records is established in Hollywood, CA. Founded by songwriting legend Johnny Mercer (“You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby”, “Autumn Leaves”, “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)”, “Hooray for Hollywood”), songwriter/film producer Buddy De Sylva, and music store owner Glenn Wallichs (Wallichs Music City), Mercer proposes the idea of starting a record label the year before to his friend Wallichs. A few months later, Mercer proposes the same idea to De Sylva who is an executive producer at Paramount Pictures. With the third partner aboard, the three get to work organizing their first releases and opening their first offices in a building south of Sunset Blvd. By July 1, 1942, the label releases its first nine singles. The label innovates new techniques in promoting the sales of records including being the first to distribute free records to disc jockeys for promotional purposes. Capitol quickly builds up an impressive roster of artists that includes Les Baxter, Les Paul, Peggy Lee, Stan Kenton, Les Brown, and Nat King Cole. Over the years that list of artists grows to also include Frank Sinatra, Stan Kenton, Judy Garland, Stan Freberg, Gene Vincent, Dean Martin, The Four Freshmen, Al Martino, The Kingston Trio, Nancy Wilson, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Linda Ronstadt, The Band, Steve Miller Band, Bob Seger, Natalie Cole, Tina Turner, George Clinton, Duran Duran, David Bowie, Queen, Heart, MC Hammer, Garth Brooks, Radiohead, Coldplay, Foo Fighters and Katy Perry. Happy 75th Anniversary, Capitol Records!!!

hey, I’m andy! I think this pen pal thing is pretty cool, and I’m really looking forward to having one. I’m pretty open to anyone I guess. I LOVE music. I write songs, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to perform them at some point. I’m always trying to get new hobbies, so if you have any suggestions I’m ready. I don’t really watch tv because netflix and youtube are a lot more entertaining. I listen to pretty much any kind of music, but mostly alternative. I love musicals they’re awesome, but I’m kind of new to them. I’m really into astrology, and anything that claims to know who I *really* am (by the way I’m an enfp). Also if you live in another country hit me up because mine is so boring sometimes I need a break.
Hi! I dont have very many friends and im bad at talking in person sooo
I’d like to give this a try! I love learning about dufferent cultures
and countries. I listen to a combination of music. From Kpop (my
favorite) to alternative to country to rap. I watch a lot of Rick and
Morty, Doctor who, sherlock, Game of Thrones, and probably every show
ever tbh. I love Harry potter! Im a slytherin but also a ravenclaw
(slytherclaw) and Lord of the Rings. I am a pretty nice person i love
giving compliments but im also sarcastic haha. I sleep a lot, draw, and
write and read a lot.
Preferences: Ages between 14 to 19. Other than thag no preferences! I can speak spanish, french, and i am learning Korean
Hi there. I’m a freelance tattoo artist and a Concert Photographer and upcoming Journalist for ‘Discourse’, we focus on music, tattoos and gaming. mostly alternative, metal, rock, etc. - Which is great cause i’m into all of those things :) I have one tattoo, but I’m soon to get loads more.
I guess I’m mostly looking for a pen pal who’s into music journalism as well, but I’d love to just meet and talk to people from other countries. I have a lovely Maine coon cat and a love for big fluffy dogs. I’m part Maori and have only ever traveled to Australia.
I dunno what else to write here but I look forward to hearing from someone :)
