Billy Dean and the Westernaires


As far as I know, the Request label was the first record company based in Minnesota.  That is if you don't count Herschel Gold Seal, which was an imprint of Gennett, in Indiana.   The Request labels were printed gold on green, which makes them difficult to read.  I would guess it started in the mid to late 1940s.  I know of about 20 or so releases on Request.

Billy Dean was a cousin of Eddie Dean
