Twink Records

Welcome to Twink Records!

Dr. James Polk


Twink Records was founded in 1969 by Dr. James Polk as the result of a recording project collaboration initiated by Polk and long time friend James R. Hurst. "Twink" was the nickname of the proprietor of the Hide-A-Way Lounge, a popular night club in East Austin during the 1960's. Twink gave Polk permission to use the name for his label.
