Joe Bev is a mufti-talent animation/comedy/radio/TV/movie history expert who can also do thousands of characters, who is successful bringing radio theater techniques to audiobooks. We just finished 200 Spanish children's stories translated into English. But we did not just read them. We acted them out, improvised scenes to make the narrative story more engaging, and I post-produced with SFX, music and stereo effects that give what I call a 3-D audio feel. We even do many of them as parodies. We did one as the B-52s!
His current (value added) audio book is: “Yabba Dabba Doo!: The Alan Reed Story”(the voice of Fred Flinstone) and is getting great reviews: Alan Reed ‘s biography is a "Clip-filled tribute to a master character actor... Movie clips, too, and it's amazing to hear all the parts Alan played over the years. Joe Bevilacqua, who turns up doing some narration, puts in backing music and various clips which make this a nostalgia trip into the Golden Age of Radio. "
