This was the most powerful R&B radio station in the country at the time and the DJs there wielded enormous power. Like his friend and fellow jock 'Hoss' Allen, Richbourg was ready to try his hand at the record business by the late 1950s. Initially he got involved with James Hendrix in the Carrie label, but when Hendrix relocated to Detroit, John started his own Rich Records imprint and the Cape Ann music publishing company in partnership with his wife Margaret.
