Oral History Information
Allan Pearlman grew up in Queens New York and taught at a local high school after college before working in the music industry. In 1975, Sid Hack, hired Allan as a sales rep for Unicord, the same company his father, Ben, worked for 31 years. Allen loved the industry and continued to work for the company even during company mergers, such as when Wick purchased the Unicord from Gulf & Western. The company carried many emerging products from Japan including the High Flyer Guitars and electronic keyboard made by a new company called KORG. Over the years as the KORG product line increased they purchased Unicord and changed the name to KORG USA.
