July 27 in Gennett History…

Sometime in July in Gennett History, 1920: Monroe Silver recorded “Cohen at the Movies” in NYC.  The recording appeared on Gennett 9066 and Starr-Gennett 9066.  Silver recorded his Jewish stereotype Vaudeville character Cohen for several labels, not sure if this is the Gennett issue.  

1929: William Stoess and His Miami Ramblers recorded “Lonely” in Richmond.  It appeared on Gennett 6938, Champion 15800, and Supertone 9465 and featured Thomas Warner (vox).  The Champion issue sold approx. 900 copies in 1929 and 1930. 

1933: Hal Denman and His Orchestra recorded “Hand Me Down My Walking Can” in Richmond.  It appeared on Champion R-16646 and 40069 and featured Denman on vox.  Champion noted sales of R-16646 as approx. 44 copies in 1933 and 1 in 1934.
