Throwing Back to...'DR. N. VENTOR'

By Steve Crum

Kansas City TV's Dr. N. Ventor (Murray Nolte) sets the gears on his Idea Box. His local kids show was popular during the 1950's on WDAF-TV's Channel 4 (when it was owned by NBC). The good doctor puttered among his inventions, gave us light humor, and showed cartoons from Paramount Studios. He also had a tall robot, Oom-a-gog. 


Nolte also announced for the station, did commercials, and was eventually elected Mayor of Merriam, Kansas...in Greater Kansas City. He died in 2001.
