Eddie and Leo Messner launched Philo Records in 1945.
The Mesner brothers owned a record store in Los Angeles called the Philharmonic Music Store & shorted the name to Philo for their new label.
When the U.S. Patent Office refused to let them use the name because it was too close to Philco Recording Services, the brothers changed the name to Aladdin Records.
All of the Philo titles were re-released by Aladdin in 1946.
