Sept. 1st in Gennett History, 1926: Vernon Dalhart recorded “There’s A New Star in Heaven Tonight (Rudolph Valentino)” in NYC. It appeared on Ch. 15139, Chg. 188, Ge. 3370, and Her. 75526. The Champion issue sold 3,094 copies between 1926 and 1928. I do not know if this recording came from the Gennett sessions.
