George Renfro

George Renfro spent his career beating the bushes in the record business, calling on radio stations, following up with concert promoters and being a freelancer for record companies in the effort to promote new hit records. The nearly forgotten role of record promoter was at its peek in the 1950s and ‘60s when George was hired by nearly all the record labels in the Los Angeles area to get their latest records heard. As a result George is given credit for countless successful acts getting their start in the record business.
