Fredlo Recording Studios was located at 2224 East 12th Street, Davenport, Iowa, for the last twenty years of its 25-year existence. The label was owned and operated by Fredrick R. (1913-1995) and wife Lois R. (1921-1996) Mauck, who had their living quarters on the floor above the Davenport studio. Fredlo had its origins as the Inter-City Recording Service, which was in operation at 1715 15th Avenue, Moline, Illinois, as early as 1948, engaging primarily in the production of acetate recordings for personal and commercial broadcast use, with the business listed as a “transcription recording service” in the 1949 Moline city directory. Fred Mauck and his first wife, Mayphine, were listed as residents at the Inter-City studio address and were likely employed there, along with colleagues Charles B. Conover and Robert J. Lindley. The Fredlo imprint was operating at 2436 16th Street in Moline, Illinois, as early as 1951, relocating to the Davenport address around 1956 and remaining there until it ceased operations in 1976. Fred was also employed as a film projectionist at Moline’s Roxy Theater in the earliest days of the Fredlo imprint. Most of the first Fredlo issues appear to have been acetates (not unlike those cut by Inter-City), many of which were cut for a local dance studio. The earliest known record pressed by Fredlo for commercial sale appears to have been a 10″ 78 rpm single by a popular local dinner club organist named Bill Ingogly, featuring the songs “Dreamer With A Penny” and “Love, Mystery, and Adventure.” The single was first advertised in local newspapers in February 1952 as being for sale in local record stores. Very little additional information about this single is available. A more common release was first advertised in newspapers three months later in May 1952, a 10″ 78 rpm single by a Western Swing ensemble known as Buddies of the Airlanes in 1952 (“Wind” b/w “Keeper of My Heart”, Fredlo 52063). The first two digits of the catalog number invariably indicate the year of issue. The catalog number consisted of four digits in 1951, expanding to five digits beginning in 1952, scaling back to four digits in 1956. The label appears to have ceased operation in 1976, with Fred returning to work as a film projectionist by 1977. The Maucks left the Quad City area for Grand Marais, Minnesota, by 1979, spending the rest of their lives in that community.

The name Fredlo is a contraction of names of the owners, Fred and Lois.

(1) A “test cut” 10” acetate also exists
(2) This 45 has been duplicated as a modern pressing
(3) A four-song acetate EP numbered 6311 also exists. Two of the songs are from a released 45 by The Escorts; the other two songs are obviously The Escorts but were never released.
(4) Although no mention of Fredlo appears on the record label, this was apparently pressed by Kay Bank Custom Pressings (2541 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis) on behalf of Fredlo.
(5) Rereleased on 180-gram vinyl (limited quantity of 450) and compact disc in February 2008 with four bonus tracks on the Shadoks label from Germany (catalog # 090)
(6) The Guys Who Came Up from Downstairs were formerly known as Grandma’s Rockers
(7) Viewed on eBay. Catalog number duplicates another Fredlo release apparently, but this one appears to be correct.

 

Incomplete Information for the Following Five Releases:

73xxIowa All State Band, Chorus & OrchestraLP“Twenty-Seventh Annual Festival Concert”1973
?The BullocksLP“Let’s Talk About Jesus”?

Fredlo was primarily a recording studio. It’s very likely that individual acetate recordings could be made at the studio. Commercial vinyl pressings in quantities of 100 or more appear to have been outsourced to companies such as Kay Bank Custom Pressings, 2541 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN (from as early as 1960 into 1969) and Wakefield Manufacturing of Phoenix, AZ (from late 1969 to at least 1973).

  • 1920 – Federal census shows him living in Tipton, Iowa, with his parents, older brother Harry Sr., and what appear to be two maternal aunts.

  • 1930 – Federal census shows him living in Des Moines, Iowa, with his parents and older sister Ruth.

The band is reported to have traveled a territory ranging from Iowa to the Canadian Border, and south through Kansas. While touring through areas known as The Dust Bowl, dust would pile up in the car, obligating the band members to wear handkerchiefs over their faces. The Freddie Mauck Orchestra is reported to have disbanded on 31 December 1936.

  • 1979 – by this year, Fred and Lois had left the Quad Cities to retire in Grand Marais, Minnesota, on the Canadian border. The building at 2224 East 12th Street initially went to Dave R. Hodam, but by 1980 was being shared by Com-Pac Corporation and Quad City Brokerage Service.
  • 2011, June – Ragged Records, a retailer of new and used records and compact discs located at 418 E 2nd Street in Davenport, sold 200 Fredlo acetates, test pressings and unsold commercial releases recovered from the basement of Fredlo’s former Davenport studio. The winning bid of $723 was made by an unidentified Italian collector.

 

Fred and Lois were married 3 August 1951. The marriage may have prompted the recording business to change its name from “Inter-City Recording Service” to “Fredlo.” Inter-City Recording Service was operating in Moline from at least 1948, with the Fredlo imprint being seen as early as 1951 on acetate recordings prepared for the Rae Dance Studio. The label on Fredlo recordings shows the city of operation as Moline into 1954. The Fredlo studio is listed in Davenport city directories from 1955 through 1976. By 1977, Fred is listed as a film operator at Spruce Hills Twin Theater. By 1979, Fred and Lois left Iowa to retire in Minnesota. Fredrick Raymond Mauck (b. 24 April 1913 in Yetter, Iowa; d. 11 March 1995 in Duluth, Minnesota) was the son of noted Iowa pharmacist Harry C. Mauck, Sr. Fred’s brother, Harry C. Mauck, Jr., was managing editor of the Council Bluffs Nonpareil, while his sister, Jane, was a staff member at the State College of Iowa in Cedar Falls. Lois Rita Fennell (b. 7 June 1921; d. 14 January 1996 in Duluth, Minnesota) was the daughter of Monroe Fennell (died in Muscatine or Davenport at the age of 74 on 31 January 1972) and Marie (Pokorny) Fennell. Her parents Monroe and Marie were married 16 September 1920 in Bettendorf. Lois had married Milton Hansen and had a son, Milton Hansen II, and daughter, Betty Lou, prior to marrying Fred. Fred and Lois had a son, Fredrick Mauck Jr., who was known to be living in Santa Ana, California, in the mid-1990s.
