Melron Records

Melron's "King Love" by the Allures was used in Season 2, Episode 5 of Netflix's "Master of None" starring Aziz Ansari. In that episode, Ansari's character, Dev Shah, is at a bar with a date. As he and his date are talking, "King Love" is playing softly in the background.

Download song samples and full length MP3's of Melron's "Philly Sound" music from the late 50's and early 60's. Then purchase the CD or download or stream your favorites from Apple iTunes or the Apple Music service
