B-W

B-W records includes two seperate series. The first series was started by Quentin "Reed" Welty in 1961 and based in his home town of Wooster. The B-W name came from Welty and Dana Burns, a former partner of Welty's who had no actual involvement in the label. The inital B-W series ran until 1970. The label went dark, briefly, but was revisied with a completely different logo and catalog number sequence. At that moment Welty was only involved with the publishing, his main business interest. The second B-W series was run from Wheeling, West Virginia with some connection to the legendary country radio station WWVA. Most of the B-W records are country, as that was Welty's main focus.
