TV Fact #218 – May 30th, 2015:

“Richard Diamond, Private Detective” (1957-1960) was first a very popular radio show that starred actor Dick Powell as the titular sleuth. It ran for a few years in the early 1950’s. When it was decided to make it a TV series, Powell was approached to do it. However, he felt he was too old and instead recommended younger actor David Janssen who would ultimately play the role on television.
