About The Group
Appearing on the WLBC Hoosierland Jamboree, the Rhythm Serenaders were heard regularly over the WLBC airwaves out of Muncie, Indiana. We found an article about them in July 1952 that indicated that they had been formed two and half years prior to that by Paul Norman and "Buck" Buckmaster.
They got some national acclaim for their renditions while at WLBC. They were known for their close harmonies as a sextet group.
Paul Norman was the veteran vocalist and guitar player of the group. "Buck" Buckmaster also did vocals and rhythm guitar. Harold "Red" Stanley played the fiddle. On lead guitar was Freddy Voyels. Providing the steel guitar sound was Kenneth Cox. Bill Black doubled up on bass fiddle and rhythm guitar and occasionally when called upon, did a 'smooth' vocal or two.
