EPSTEIN, LOU (C. 1924-1963)

Lou Epstein was majority owner of the Jimmie Skinner Music Center in Cincinnati. He managed the store and also managed Jimmie’s career during Jimmie’s most successful years. He acquired the Radio Artist record label in the late 1940s and used it as a tool to promote Jimmie Skinner exclusively, releasing eleven records by Jimmie in 1949 and 1950, which led to Jimmie getting signed by Capitol Records.
