September 26th in Gennett History…

1935: Ken Card recorded “The Last Flight of Wiley Post” and “Will Rogers, Your Friend and Mine” in NYC.  Both recordings appeared on Champion 45148.  Both songs paid tribute to these two men, an aviator and an American humorist, who died in a plane crash near Point Barrow, Alaska in 1935.  Here is a news reel about these two men and their fated flight.
