PYE

1953 - 1980

Pye Records was a British record label.

The Pye Company originally manufactured televisions and radios. Its main plant was situated off what used to be Haig Road, in Cambridge, and it entered the record business when it bought Nixa Records in 1953.

In 1955, the company acquired Polygon Records, a label that had been established by Petula Clark's father and Alan A. Freeman to control distribution of her recordings, and merged it with Nixa Records to form Pye Nixa Records.

The label changed its name to PRT Records in 1980, before being briefly reactivated as Pye Records in 2006.
