American singer, songwriter, and jazz pianist. the first black musician to ever have a weekly radio and television show.
The first episode of the Nat King Cole Show was aired 5 November 1956 and the last December 17, 1957. Cole had survived for over a year, and it was he, not NBC, who ultimately decided to pull the plug on the show. NBC and Nat had been operating at an extreme financial loss due to the lack of sponsorship his show received. Cole said shortly after its demise, "Madison Avenue is afraid of the dark." ________________________________________
