The fifth edition of Joe Bev's Jazz-O-Rama Hour airs this Saturday, July 21 at 2 pm (ET) / 11 am (PT) on Internet radio powerhouse Cult Radio-A-Go-Go! (http://www.cultradioagogo.com).



This Saturday Joe Bev presents 78 RPM Jazz with a Sense of Humor: "Helen Kane & Billy Costello, the 78s of Betty Boop & Popeye the Sailor":
I'm Pop-eye the Sailor Man - Billy Costello (1935)
I Wanna Be Loved By You - Helen Kane (1928)
Man on the Flying Trapeze - Billy Costello (1934)
Button Up Your Overcoat Helen Kane (1929)
The Teddy Bear's Picnic - Billy Costello (1935)
That's Why I'm Happy  - Helen Kane-  (1929)
Let's All Sing Like the Birdies Sing - Billy Costello (1935)
I Have to Have You - Helen Kane (1929)
Good Ship Yakihiki Dooda - Billy Costello (1935)
My Man is on the Make - Helen Kane (1930)
Nagasaki - Billy Costello (1935)
I Want to Be Bad  - Helen Kane (1929)
Dinah - Billy Costello (1935)
Dangerous Nan McGrew - Helen Kane (1930)
Tiger Rag - Billy Costello (1935)


William "Billy" Costello a.k.a. "Red Pepper Sam", was the original voice of Popeye the Sailor in animated cartoons. Costello had worked with the Fleischer Studio as the voice of Gus the Gorilla on the Betty Boop radio show and they felt that the raspy voice he had used for that character would work for the new Popeye character they were planning.[1] He was cast to provide the voice for the first Popeye cartoon, 1933's Popeye the Sailor. Costello appeared in the next 24 Popeye shorts until he was fired by the Fleischers, allegedly over "bad behavior," and was replaced with Jack Mercer. Costello's final appearance was in You Gotta Be A Football Hero (1935).


Helen Kane became known as the 'Boop-Boop-a-Doop Girl' because of her baby-talk, scat-singing tag line to that song. This version was recorded right when Kane's popularity started to reach its peak, and became her signature song. Kane's first performance at the Paramount Theater in Times Square proved to be her career's launching point. She was singing "That's My Weakness Now", when she interpolated the scat lyrics “boop-boop-a-doop.” This resonated with the flapper culture, and four days later, Helen Kane’s name went up in lights.Two years later, a cartoon character named Betty Boop was modeled after Kane. In 1930, Fleischer Studios animator Grim Natwick introduced a caricature of Helen Kane, with droopy dog ears and a squeaky singing voice, in the Talkartoons cartoon Dizzy Dishes. "Betty Boop", as the character was later dubbed, soon became popular and the star of her own cartoons. In 1932, Betty Boop was changed into a human, the long dog ears becoming hoop earrings. Helen Kane unsuccessfully sued Max Fleischer over the character.


Joe Bev has been producing radio in many genres since 1971 when he was 12. At 19 in 1980, Bev became the youngest person to produce a radio show for public radio. He co-hosted The Jazz Show with Garret Gega in the early 80s, a four hour a week mix classic jazz and comedy. Bev also worked for WBGO, Jazz 88 in Newark, NJ and produced documentaries for WNYC New York Public Radio on jazz legends including Louis Armstrong, Wynton Marsalis, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Cab Calloway, and Lionel Hampton.


Bev also produces, directs, writes and voices half of The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, which is has been highest rated radio show on Cult Radio A-Go-Go! for many weeks.  Joe Bev's other weekly radio show, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour debuted two Saturdays ago at #2.

The veteran voice actor is about to add his third hour for Cult Radio, called The Joe Bev Experience which will air right after The Jazz-O-Rama Hour, giving him a three hour block of air time.

Whale Wars Mocumentary on Joe Bev's "Camp Waterlogg" Radio Theater Hour- Sat July 21, 1 pm (ET) on CRAGG


Ellis & Elise are back from there Pastafarian Honeymoon and the Baluga Battles  on Camp Waterlogg radio comedy airing Saturday, July 21, 1 pm (ET) on CRAGG


The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is followed by The Jazz-O-Rama Hour & The Joe Bev Experience, part of Joe Bev's 3-hour block, airing every Saturday starting 1 pm (ET) / 10 am (PT) at  cultradioagogo.com. 



Ellis and Elise return from their seafaring honeymoon during which they were attacked by pirates, shipwrecked on desert island, rescued by the Bahamian Coast Guard, and finally star in their own reality TV show, Beluga Battles.


This mockumentary parody on the TV reality show Whale Wars will be heard on this week's edition of The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, the weekly wacky radio theater show created by Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev.) that takes place at Camp Waterlogg, the dilapidated kid's camp in the Catskills.


The Comedy-O-Rama Hour airs at 1 pm (ET) / 10 am (PT) as part of this week's premiere of "The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block," which includes The Jazz-O-Rama Hour and The Joe Bev Experience, at http://www.cultradioagogo.com.


Bev and his wife Lorie Kellogg not only co-write half the show and improvise the other half, the couple perform most of the voices in the show. On this week's Camp Waterlogg segments, Joe Bev is the voice of Sgt. Lefty, Ellis the Boatkeeper, The Professor, Willoughyby, Lil Orphan Andy, "Beluga Battles" ship crew members, cartoon drops of water, other narration and the announcer. Lorie Kellogg voices Olive Pitts, Elise, cartoon drops of water, "Beluga Battles" ship crew members and other narration.


"We improvise part of the show in the woods around my Catskills cabin home," explains Bev, who adds "and even our chickens end up in the final show! I use a portable stereo recorder and get most of my sound effects live on the spot! I even make actors climb trees if the scene calls for it."
The Jazz-O-Rama Hour
air every Saturday
1 pm (ET) / 10 am (PT) at
http://www.cultradioagogo.com. 


Bev reveals, "One trick I use is I move back and forth from right to left on the mike for each character I do. If you listen to my work, I am often all the characters in a scene, 2, 3, maybe 20, all panned in a different place in the audio landscape. We are no longer stuck in a studio. We can record anywhere. This is not your grandfather's radio theater!"

This week's Comedy-O-Rama Hour also features cartoons "A Drop of Water" and "Ice in the Jungle" by Pedro Pablo Sacristan, and a visit from Joe Bev's childhood creations Willoughby and the Professor.

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.

CRAGG Adds Third Weekly Hour of Radio from Veteran NPR Sirius-XM Producer Joe Bevilacqua


The Joe Bev Experience premieres 
Saturday, July 21 at 3 pm ET / noon PT
right after Joe Bev's 
Comedy-O-Rama Hour 
 & Jazz-O-Rama Hour
(part of "The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block"
 starting 1 pm ET)

http://www.cultradioagogo.com




As if Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) doesn't have enough to do producing and hosting two one hour weekly radio shows, online radio powerhouse Cult Radio-A-Go-Go! (CRAGG) has tapped the veteran NPR Sirius-XM radio personality to produce and host a third!




 The Joe Bev Experience premieres premieres Saturday, July 21 at 3 pm ET / noon PT on http://www.cultradioagogo.com, right after Joe Bev's Comedy-O-Rama Hour and Jazz-O-Rama Hour (part of "The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block" starting 1 pm ET)



The new radio hour is an anthology series representing the depth and breath of Bev's 40-plus year career in audio storytelling, from documentary to radio drama, and new and classic installments of Bev's older radio show Cartoon Carnival (still heard on many stations).


"A 60 minute show of alternating different shows & chapters of your audio books. I think it's a great fresh idea!!! Very excited!" Exclaimed Cult Radio-A-Go-Go! co-owner Terry DuFoe, who equates The Joe Bev Experience with the 1970s television anthology The NBC Mystery Movie, which featured rotating episodes of Columbo, McMillian and Wife, McCloud, etc.

"It is difficult to fit all of my audio work into one format. I guess this is the reason I have a comedy show, a jazz show, and now an 'everything else' show!" jokes Bev.


 On the premiere Joe Bev Experience will be a new episode (the 53rd) of Cartoon Carnival, in which one of Bev's many alter egos Mr. Jazzbo (a talking 78 RPM record) introduces soundtracks from Max Fleischer and Warner Brothers Cartoons that feature classic jazz. More details about this first show will be announced later this week.
