The Dying End?: A Joe Bev Radio Drama Audiobook

The Dying End?: A Joe Bev Radio Drama

Author: Daws Butler Narrator: Joe Bevilacqua, Peter Cummings, Rick Ramos Release Date: October 2016

In this post-Apocalyptic drama, Ten is unfrozen and guided into an unfamiliar world by caretaker Barnstormer Pfaff. This original radio play was written by Daws Butler (Yogi Bear) and produced and directed by Joe Bevilacqua. "Joe Bev" is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist. However, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. Since 1980, Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius XM Radio and others. In 2012, Bevilacqua signed an exclusive distribution deal with Blackstone Audio, for his more than 40 years of audio work. He is releasing hundreds of hours of audio documentaries, comedies, dramas, autobiographies and more. Not content to hide behind his microphone, Bevilacqua will be seen acting in the upcoming feature films: "The Green Blade Rises" directed by A.J. Edwards, "The Fly Room" directed by Alexis Gambis, "Cold in July" directed by Jim Mickle, and "Hits" directed by David Cross. Bevilacqua is the 2013 recipient of the Kean University Distinguished Alumni Award. His documentary "Lady Bird Johnson Legacy of a First Lady won the 2001 New York Festivals Award". He won a 2007 New York Festivals Awards for his "Tribute to Joe Barbera" which aired on NPR s All Things Considered.

The Comedy-O-Rama Hour: The XM Satellite Years Audiobook

The Comedy-O-Rama Hour: The XM Satellite Years

Now available in one collection for you to enjoy! Long before Sgt. Lefty and the Camp Waterlogg gang took over, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour residents were parody versions of Mysteries (Sherlock Holmes), Old-time Radio (The Shadow, The Lone Ranger, etc.), SCI-FI (Willoughby and the Professor), Superheroes (Teaman and Polfroon), and more. "Those were the XM years," explains Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev), who not only produced Comedy-O-Rama, but also wrote and voiced 80% of the productions, which aired four years on XM Satellite Radio. Joe Bev, explains, "The idea started in 1996 as a website paying tribute to old-time comedians. When XM Program Direct Steve Karesh asked me to turn the website into a weekly radio show, I wrote many hours of radio theater, complete with sound effects and music. Many others contributed and ended up making 60 hours worth!" The original scripted Comedy-O-Rama came to a conclusion in 2008, a victim of the SiriusXM merger. During the show's hiatus, Joe Bev created a number of other successful radio shows, including The Jazz-O-Rama Hour, The Joe Bev Experience, Cartoon Carnival, and The Joe Bev Audio Theater, all still produced and running today on many radio stations, as well as podcasts. In 2012, Joe Bev revamped The Comedy-O-Rama Hour as an totally improvised radio theater experience involving the fictional Camp Waterlogg. Over 70 hours of those have since been produced, and all are available, under separate titles, from Blackstone Audio. "Great parodies of old-time radio icons, classic moments with legendary comedians, and wonderful voice acting, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour picks up where great radio comedy left off decades ago. Heck, it's even produced in the Borscht Belt."-Steve Karesh, Program Director, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio

The Ology of Isms: A Nigerian Twist on The Emperor's New Clothes Audiobook

The Ology of Isms: A Nigerian Twist on The Emperor's New Clothes

The Ology of Isms is a Nigerian twist on Hans Christian Anderson's classic fairy tale "The Emperor's New Clothes," written by Nigerian playwright Emmanuel Adeleye. This radio theater production is produced by Joe Bevilacqua and features sound effects, music, and a full cast. Emmanuel Adeleye was born in Nigeria in 1961. After graduating high school, he worked with the Nigerian Television Authority and with the Federation Radio Corporation of Nigeria as a playwright, actor, and artist. He then came to the United States, where he studied theater at Kean College (now Kean University) in Union, New Jersey. In 1981 Adeleye teamed with Joe Bevilacqua to create The Ology of Isms, his first radio play ever presented in the United States. It first aired on WKNJ Radio and later on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio. Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev, is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist. However, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film, and television as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. In 1971 Bevilacqua's father bought him a cassette recorder, on which he created his first audio story: Willoughby and the Professor. He acted all the voices himself at the age of twelve. In 1975 Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Joe Bev's personal mentor after hearing a 120-minute cassette of Bev's Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980, Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, and others.
