Simon Waronker
Simon Waronker (March 4, 1915 – June 7, 2005) was a violinist and record producer. From 1939 to 1955, Waronker recorded music for 20th Century Fox films until he chose to enter the recording industry independently, co-founding Liberty Records.

One of the major acts who recorded on Liberty Records was Alvin and the Chipmunks, actually Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., who recorded as David Seville. Seville named The Chipmunks (Alvin, Simon, and Theodore) after Liberty Records executives Alvin Bennett, Simon Waronker, and Theodore Keep, respectively.[1]
