October 17th in Gennett History, 1936: Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg made a political speech full of rebuttals that included recordings of President Roosevelt. The Senator from Michigan started by playing a recording of Roosevelt’s oath of office in 1933. Vandenberg accused President Roosevelt of forming a socialistic, radical “Roosevelt Party.” It appeared on Gennett Historical #2. A Gennett 1941 catalog stated “We introduce here our initial release of Historical and Educational recordings reproducing decisive moments of History, made as they occurred, or reproduced exclusively for Gennett by the author,” and that this recording was “1 double faced 16-inch 33 1/3 RPM $9.00”
