Nat King Cole (1946-1950)



Nat King Cole Radio Show

(1946-1950)

Musical / Variety

Nathaniel Adams Coles was born in Montgomery, Alabama, on Saint Patrick's Day in 1919.
 
Radio played a huge part in the Nat King Cole trio's rise to fame . Their first radio appearance was with NBC's "Blue Network " in 1938, which was later followed by appearances on NBC's " Swing Soiree." Throughout the 1940's, the trio appeared on the "Old Gold," " Chesterfield Supper Club " and "Kraft Music Hall" shows.

In 1946, the trio sponsored their own 15-minute radio program called, "King Cole Trio Time." It became the first radio program sponsored by a black performing artist. During Nat's radio years, the trio recorded a large number of "transcription" recordings, made in the radio studio specifically for radio broadcast, that were used instead of commercial recordings.
