These groups wanted Lou to record the songs they were singing on the street corner and help propel them to stardom.

    Lou's faith in the material he was producing was so strong that almost every time he was ready to release a master, if he had difficulty placing it with a record label, he would release it on Cousins and soon a major label would eventually lease the product based on its local sales and strong teenager appeal.The Chesterfields recorded "I Got Fired" and "Meet Me At The Candy Store" and the record eventually sold to ”MGM Records” released by subsidiary Cub Records.
