About Jimmie Haskell and His Orchestra
Haskell got his first break in the music business through his mother, who knew Anita Steiman, who ran the publishing company for Lew Chudd, owner of Imperial Records. Steiman introduced him to Chudd, and Haskell eventually convinced Chudd to hire him. Chudd was a cut-throat operator who produced a steady stream of hits for Imperial by having Haskell copy the arrangement off of regional hits Chudd had sent to him from his network of local disc jockeys. It might not have been ethical, but as Haskell admitte later, " knew how to make hit records."
