Carl Burkhardt formed Queen City Records in 1950. The house labels was such as Alcar, Arc, Big 4 Hits, Kentucky, Gateway EP, Gateway Series, Gateway Top Tune (Parade of Hits, Top Tunes).
In early 1957 Burkhart sold RITE's discount labels to a company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It appears that Rite continued to press all the records for the new owners. The Philadelphia owners occasionally issued the same exact records with other labels names that were less often used such as; Worthmore, Music Please, hep, Deresco, Super-Value, Coast to Coast and Four.
