The Art of Audio #5: "I'm Serious!"

The Joe Bev Experience

The Art of Audio #5
"I'm Serious!"

I sat on the couch next to Barbara Bush. It was the 2000, Lorie and I were at the Bush home in Houston, Texas interviewing the former First Lady for my radio documentary on Lady Bird Johnson, which won a 2001 NY Festivals Award.

Mrs. Bush leaned in on me and asked me to briefly turn off my recorder. I oblige and she told me an off the record story about President Jimmy Carter. Sorry, I can't repeat it. :-)

You may think this an odd place for a comedian and cartoon voice actor. But the fact is I have two careers. One funny. The other serious.

I was the last person to
interview John Houseman.
Listen to my documentary here.

My reports for National Public Radio have won me a number of awards and I have produced and directed hundreds of radio dramas.

Listen to this classic drama here.

My own plays, such as A Freneau Sampler: The Prose and Poetry of Revolutionary War Writer Philip Freneau, have toured before stage audiences.

The truth is I am a storyteller. Whether it's fiction or reality, comic or serious, I love telling stories that are positive, that uplift, inspire, or at least give comfort. There are plenty of horror stories out there, real and imagined. 

I can't tell these stories alone. The support I get from the many writers, actors, and musicians I work with is invaluable.

Me Off-Broadway with Vernon Morris.

Me with Katherine Graham at The Washington Post.

Who are these invaluable humans? Tune in next time and find out.. 

Best to you all,
Joe Bev.
