The weekly radio anthology hour presents a different aspect of the diverse audio career of Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev).

On the Saturday, August 18th show, Bev presents the autobiography of the voice of Fred Flintstone, brought to life in radio theater style by veteran radio-theater producer Joe Bevilacqua and Alan Reed Jr., featuring rare interviews with Alan Reed himself, an interview with Joe Barbera, and clips from Reed's radio, TV, and film career, including The Fred Allen Show, The Shadow, The Life of Riley, Life with Luigi, Duffy's Tavern, The Postman Always Rings Twice, Viva Zapata, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and The Flintstones. This is an enhanced unabridged audiobook of the print book, which can be purchased from

What the Critics Say: "Alan Reed, the voice of Fred, is no longer with us, but Joe’s done his damnedest to bring him back in a five-hour, six minute audio book called 'Yabba Dabba Doo!: The Alan Reed Story.' Fans of old radio shows should be delighted to hear that contained within the mound of audio (if audio came in mounds) is Bill Marx narrating letters Fred Allen wrote to Reed. People may not realise Alan’s Falstaff Openshaw character was an early resident of Allen’s famous Alley; Allen used the Falstaff character to comment on political and social affairs through rhyming verse. Allen gave ownership of Falstaff to Reed when he left the show. The Openshaw voice was the one Reed used for ‘Frederick’ Flintstone in'“The Split Personality' (1960)." Don Yowp,

Also, on the hour, a new installment of Scenes from the Daws Butler Workshop, in which Joe Bev presents scripts written by his mentor, the voice of Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Elroy Jetson, Cap'n Crunch and other cartoon characters.

"Daws was a prolific writer and he fashioned these wonderful serious scripts, not cartoony," says Bev, who together with his wife Lorie Kellogg performs two Daws Butler scripts on this week's show: "Godot, Not Home (Revisted)" (a parody of Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot") and "My Brunch with A" (A takeoff on Wallace Shawn's "My Dinner with Andre").

Joe Bevilacqua is a veteran radio theater producer and voice actor. He also works on stage and is the winner of the 2012 New York TANYS Award for Excellence in Acting. He has performed at the Improv, Caroline's on Broadway, Catch a Rising Star, the Comic Strip, opened for Uncle Floyd, worked with Al Franken, Shelley Berman, Louis Black and Rick Overton. Joe has also MC'd shows featuring Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Mahr and Gilbert Gottfried. He has been regularly heard on National Public Radio and Sirius-XM Radio and has produced hundreds of hours of audiobooks.
