Hearing On Future Of King Records Building Delayed


The former home of Cincinnati-based King Records will stay intact for at least the next six months after a hearing on whether the building's owner may demolish the structure was continued. The Cincinnati Historic Conservation Board says both sides agreed to delay the hearing from today until August 27 in hopes a deal can be reached to save the building. Dynamic Industries believes demolishing the studio would make the 12-acre site more valuable for a potential sale. The city hopes to restore the recording studio and construct a small museum. King Records was the nation's sixth-largest record company at its peak during the 1940s and 50s.
