Music Corporation of America
MCA was founded as a music booking agency based in Chicago in 1924 by Jules Stein . MCA entered the music business in 1962 with the purchase of the US Decca branch, including Coral Records and Brunswick Records. In 1979 it acquired ABC Dunhill Records along with its subsidiaries ABC Records, Paramount Records, Impulse Records, Dot Records and Dunhill Records. Chess Records was acquired in 1985, Motown Records was bought in 1988 (and sold to Polygram in 1993). GRP Records and Geffen Records were acquired in 1990. In the same year, the MCA Corporation holding company was purchased by the Matsushita group. Its assets have since undergone other sales, and MCA is now part of the Universal Music Group.
MCA ran "RadioMOI" Music On Internet company.
