Jose Armada Jr. founded multiple Miami based record labels starting with Joey Boy Records with partner Allen L. Johnston.
In an effort to help keep his son in the family business, Jose Armada Sr. connected with Allen L. Johnston, a local promotion man who had worked with various labels and was at the time between jobs. Convinced that releasing hit records was simply a matter of finding the right song and putting the right amount of money behind it, Allen L. Johnston told Jose Armada Sr. that he was interested in starting a label but lacked the capital. Jose Armada Sr. made Allen L. Johnston an offer he couldn't refuse: "Get my son involved in the label and I'll back you". The rest is Miami Music History.
Some of the multiple Miami based record labels and corporations started by Jose Armada Jr. include the following: Platano Records, Joey Boy Records, JR Records, Parcha Records, Jalapeño Records and On Top Records; amongst several others.
