His voice can be heard in countless classic animated cartoons still seen on television around the world. He was Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, and a hundred others. His fans included Groucho Marx, Lionel Barrymore, and even Albert Einstein. His work with satirist Stan Freberg sold millions of records. You have probably never heard of him. His name was Daws Butler.

Included are The Christmas That Almost Never Was, the classic 1940s children’s radio show; What the Butler Wrote, his 1975 acting workshop scripts; Rare Daws Butler, a selection of comedy recordings; and Daws Butler Teaches You Dialects, a tutorial in English and American accents, as well many other performances.

Joe Bev 
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.
Not content to hide behind his microphone, Bevilacqua will be seen acting in the upcoming feature films: "The Green Blade Rises" directed A.J. Edwards, "The Fly Room" directed by Alexis Gambis, "Cold in July" directed by Jim Mickle, and "Hits" directed by David Cross.

Joe Bev (Bevilacqua) can do hundreds of voices, dialects and impressions. For the upcoming movie "The Fly Room," he not only portrayed the on screen character of Uncle Dwight, he was personally commissioned by the director Alexis Gambis, to act as vocal coach to the cast during the entire shoot and wrote, produced and voiced a number of audio sound beds in the style of old time radio for use in the film. Bevilacqua has been selected for the role of British General Bernard Montgomery for the upcoming History Channel WWII miniseries.

Sound Stages Radio is airing two unique Joe Bev Audio Theater shows per week:
Tuesdays 8:30 am ET, repeat Wednesdays 2:30 pm ET and Fridays 1:30 pm Fridays, repeat Saturdays 5:00 pm, streamed at
