1952 - 1958
Gateway Records was a Cincinatti, Ohio, based budget record label, founded in 1952.
The label belonged to Carl Burckhardt's record company Rite Record Productions and issued cover versions of hit recordings.
There were three different Gateway labels: Gateway, Gateway Top Tune, and Gateway Parade of Hits. The records were recorded and manufactured by Rite.
Rite sold Gateway in 1958 to a Philadelphia record company, which closed the label the same year.
