Nat King Cole
Introduction

Between October 1946 and April 1948, the King Cole Trio had their own nationally-sponsored radio program—King Cole Trio Time—broadcast weekly on NBC radio. While many of these 15-minute shows were transcribed and pressed to disc by AFRS, several were not, although a handful of shows without pressing still exist. This page only reports performances that are currently known to exist.
