1940 - 1948
In 1940, Asch established Asch Recordings in New York and concentrated on publishing and selling phonograph records. In 1942 ASCH Records formed partnership with the Stinson Trading Company. In overall, this relation was mutually beneficial thought not without serious problems that eventually lead Moe Asch to dissolve the partnership in 1946.
Asch overextended his operations and went bankrupt in 1948.
