Max B. Nimble and Children’s Television
Saturday March 28, 6-7:30pm
Join us at the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting as we welcome Max Howard, the actor who played TV’s Max B. Nimble during the mid-1970s as we discuss his show and children’s educational television in general.
Per Mike Martini, President of Media Heritage, the Museum’s collection of Cincinnati radio and TV broadcasting artifacts, “This will be a fun blast from the past as we discuss his show, children’s educational television in general, and why he claims his show was the ‘greatest kid’s show you never heard of,’” said Martini. “The show won 10 Emmys, as well as numerous other awards during the show’s 39-episode run. This is an amazing accomplishment for any television production, and yet, it remains unknown, even in Cincinnati. It’s a story worth telling and work worth remembering.”
We'll discuss the FCC's requirements for educational programming and how some broadcasters skirt around the rules. We'll even remember Max B. Nimble by showing some original scenes from the show and introduce some of the behind-the-scenes producers.
ADMISSION is $10 at the door. Reservations are recommended by March 26. To reserve a seat, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (513) 777-0027.
