Counting Down to the "The Count"

In Oklahoma, since 1958 a standard local television personality was John Ferguson aka "Count Gregore." Ferguson was a serious actor and appeared in several stage productions and screen appearances before he ever crafted the vampiric personality of the Count.  Once that persona emerged he delighted audiences for decades on the screen and at local events.  After 30 years, the regular televison shows died out but Ferguson continued to host specials, make appearances and provide a unique presence at various events.  Local station KSBI will bring him back for a special return engagement in "Count Gregore's Nightmare Theater",  on Oct. 27, channel 52, at 11 p.m.   It is hoped his presence will return on a more regular basis for new audiences to discover and enjoy.
