Note: Just found some info on the internet that Jim Brunner and The Rhythaires may have recorded a 45 with KL Recording Services as KS-1 on the A side only. Bill Landowski & Village Brass were KS-2. KL was a recording studio in Hubertus and they were established in 1952!

June 24, 2015 - Maxine Brunner Fleury You might not see it, it's up under the Eagle...LPS-1001. I'll have to get together with my family and get pictures of the studio, recording board/equip and list of the recordings he made. He even recorded groups that sang jingles - the one that comes to mind is Skipper Buds. My brother Max and I heard it so much we can still sing it to this day wink emoticon Yes, you are correct. My father-in-law is Don Fleury. My husband Tom played bass with him as well as several other contemporary bands. I'm surrounded by musicians smile emoticon I'm sure Don would be happy to share whatever information you need.
