Tales of the Diamond K - Single Episodes

(4.7 stars; 3 reviews)


There is not much information available about Tales of the Diamond K, despite extensive research done both on the internet and in the newspaper logs. It was a 15 minute syndicated show aimed at a juvenile audience and appeared to have been aired on a daily basis, during the mid 50's. Some sources indicate that as many as a thousand shows were produced, but there are only 39 known to be in existence. The series starred Ken Maynard as the host who introduced and told a different story each day. Most of the stories took place in the Old West. From the Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. See "Note" Section below for more information on the OTRR.

This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.



Early Western star branches out!

Fans of this pioneer singing cowboy & film star will be ecstatic to find his rare radio work on this website! Other than one movie, there isn't a whole lot available past 1945 from KM! Tales (from) the Diamond K is a well produced reality type series with, beside Ken, a host and a horse. The audio is good along with the story telling. There are tie-in commercials for record albums and t-shirts as well! There is an entry for Mr. Maynard in the Harmony Illustrated Encyclopedia of Country Music, so you Country Music fans give a listen too!
