Design: The label design follows the distinctive format of the German Telefunken label, with the V-shaped segment at the top. The 'Radio Rundfunk' logo is translated as 'Radio Broadcasting.'

History: Speculation exists that the tracks on these records were 'lifted' from German originals during WWII. Label scan courtesy of jazzologist and collector Dave Dixon of Canada.
