Ken Maynard"From Ken Maynard's Diamond K Ranch, we're bringing
you stories of adventure, stories of circus life ...
fascinating transcribed tales of the old west where
cowboys still follow the cattle trails ...
Stories of rodeos and parades, colorful legends
of the red man, hidden gold and buried treasure!
The exciting tales from the Diamond K are
told by Hollywood's champion of western stars
-- internationally famous -- Ken Maynard."

Tales from the Diamond K was an early 15-minute 1950s radio series of 'real life stories' told by movie cowboy Ken Maynard, and his white horse, Tarzan.

It is believed that there were more than a thousand of these self contained radio tales directed towards young people, however less than 40 are known to have survived.Maynard Each is delivered in an intriguing and exciting style, tales of cowboys and cattle trails, rodeos and parades,hidden gold and buried treasure. Also listen for Maynard's premiums, an offer for a personalized phonograph recording of his stories, and the Western "K-Shirt" with the Diamond K Brand on the front.

Ken Maynard performed as a trick rider in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and served in the Army during WW1. He got his start in silent movies in 1921, at first as a stuntman. With his rugged good looks and excellent horsemanship he soon became a Cowboy star. Recording for Columbia Records, he was one of the first Singing Cowboys. With his two six-shooters, white cowboy hat, fancy shirt, and white stallion Tarzan, Maynard appeared in over 90 films between the 1920s and mid 1940s. Sadly his life and career were cut down by alcoholism. For a long period of time he lived in a rundown mobile home, supported by an unknown benefactor, believed by many to be Gene Autry. In 1973, Ken Maynard died penniless at the Motion Picture Home, Woodland Hills, CA. His star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is at 6751 Hollywood Blvd.
