April 14th in Gennett History, 1995: Burl Ives passed away. Didn’t know that Burl Ives had a Gennett connection? On 7/23/1929, Ives auditioned for Gennett and recorded “Behind The Clouds” in Richmond. The recording was rejected and unfortunately destroyed. He went on to have an amazing career and most of us remember him as the narrator of the Christmas classic TV show “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”
