(Cincinnati ommission, and City Council Neighborhoods Committee, City Council and Mayor Cranley are poised to designate the remaining former King Records buildings and parcels as a Landmark Designation. Joined by Evanston Community Council President Ms. Adkins, King recording artists like Otis Williams, Denise Kinnard, Jimmy Railey, Philip Paul, and the oposed King Records Experiential Learning Center, the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation’s and Bootsy Collins Foundation’s joint application has helped to significantly raise the importance of these buildings.

“There is no other place in Cincinnati that busted down racial barriers like King. At this civil rights landmark The Stanley Brothers joined with Hank Ballard and changed the world,” said CMHF President Marvin Hawkins.

“It will be an exciting day for Cincinnati and the King Records fans across the world,’ said BCF President Patti Collins.

BCF and CMHF will continue to reach out to owner and team of lawyers to try and find win-win for all that does not tear down any of the buildings, especially the structure where the studio still stands and where Danny Adler proved recording can still be done with The Last Session On Brewster. BCF and CMHF greatly appreciates an open dialog, even while owner sues city, and hopes owner will sell to #SaveKingOnBrewster.
