"Cartoon Carnival Meets The Lone Ranger" Part 2 Saturday, January 26 - 4:30 pm ET on CultRadioAGoGo!



Bill Cosby, Bugs Bunny and Glenn Campbell give their take on The Lone Ranger on the 29th edition of The Joe Bev Experience, airing Saturday, January 26 at 4:30 pm ET / 1:30 pm, right after Joe Bev's Comedy-O-Rama Hour and Jazz-O-Rama Hour (part of "The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block" starting 2:30 pm ET) on http://www.CultRadioAGoGo.com




During "Cartoon Carnival Meets the Lone Ranger" part two, host Joe Bevilacqua presents Bill Cosby's version of "The Lone Ranger" (1964), Joe Bev, Jay Snyder, Rick Ramos, Alison Nead, Cathi Tully and Tom Babkowski in "The Old Ranger" (1987), Glenn Campbell playing "The Lone Ranger" theme, Mel Blanc in the Warner Brothers cartoon "Buckaroo Bugs" (1944), and William Conrad in audio from "The Lone Ranger" TV cartoon (1980).

The Joe Bev Experience is a weekly radio hour 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). 



80th ANNIVERSARY OF THE LONE RANGER ON THE RADIO

The first of 2,956 radio episodes of The Lone Ranger premiered on January 30, 1933 on WXYZ, a radio station serving Detroit, Michigan. Sources disagree on whether station and show owner George W. Trendle or main writer Fran Striker should receive credit for the concept. Elements of the Lone Ranger story had been used in an earlier series Fran Striker wrote for a station in Buffalo, New York.

In any case, the show was an immediate success. Though it was aimed at children, adults made up at least half the audience. It became so popular, it was picked up by the Mutual Broadcasting System radio network, and finally by NBC's "Blue Network", which in time became ABC. The last new episode was broadcast September 3, 1954. Transcribed repeats of the 1952–53 episodes continued to be aired on ABC until June 24, 1955. Then selected repeats appeared on NBC's late-afternoon weekday schedule (5:30–5:55 pm Eastern time) from September 1955 to May 25, 1956. (from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lone_Ranger)

From Mel Blanc to June Foray, from Disney to Hanna-Barbera, "Cartoon Carnival" is a lively hour of rare and classic cartoon audio, children's records, cartoon music and sound effects, new radio cartoons, interviews and mini-documentaries about the wonderful world of animation. 

WHAT CRITICS SAY: "Joe always has something that interests me on his show, whether it’s old Daws Butler records or (like last week) an interview with puppeteer Craig Marin, who told a wonderful story that everyone can identify with about how he met his TV heroes. Joe also plays soundtracks of old Hanna-Barbera (and other) cartoons. Hear for yourself if Chuck Jones was right to call them 'illustrated radio'." (Don Yowp, yowpyowp.blogspot.com

Improv "Sketch Comedy" Evolves into Improv "Situation Comedy"


This Saturday, January 26, at 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT, "The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block" will include radio comedy, classic jazz and cartoons, starting with The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, then The Jazz-O-Rama Hour and The Joe Bev Experience following.

Listen online for free at http://www.CultRadioAGoGo.com.

On this week's Comedy-O-Rama Hour, Sgt. Lefty joins a Mustang club, takes his son horseback riding, makes a pot of azuki beans and Chinese dumplings for his girlfriend Olive Pitts (Lorie Kellogg). The creator of the weekly radio hour, Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) voices both Lefty and his adopted son Andy, something he admits he could only do in audio.




"My two characters really interact a lot in this week's show, so I did a lot of talking to myself!" laughs Bevilacqua, who maps out the plot of each hour and improvises the dialogue, not from a studio but in the real world, including the woods of Napanoch, NY.

"I even cooked beans over my kitchen stove while we recorded this week's story. When we were finished we had both a new hour radio situation comedy AND a pot of cooked beans!"



Also on this week's Comedy-O-Rama, Jim Folly returns as Lil Jimmy, who loan sharks Stinky (Kenny Savoy). Ellis and Adam (Joe Bev), as Elise and Mrs. Terwilliger (Lorie Kellogg) are still cleaning up after the Camp's party when the Kerhonkson police show up.

Meanwhile, Andy (Joe Bev) critiques Lkie's (Lorie Kellogg) and mud pies, and there is still a line of elder folks blocking the gates, demanding tickets to a "thingamabob".

Now in its 46th week on Cult Radio-A-Go-Go! (and its 105th since 2002 including the Sirius XM broadcasts), The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is produced by Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev).

The show had a four year successful run on Sirius XM Radio. Since returning, Comedy-O-Rama has attracted such celebrity guests as Rick Overton, Stuart Pankin, Bob Camp, Phil Proctor, June Foray, Nancy Cartwright, Bob Greenberg, Julie Newmar, and Judy Tentua.

Joe Bev attributes the positive response to his radio show as a sign today's audiences are craving radio theater.

"We are creating a fully realized storyline every week, with continuing characters, sound effects, music, full production values... plus we're funny!" says Bev, who performs half the characters on the show.

The couple have been working together since they met in 1996.

Bevilacqua says of his troupe:

"One of the funniest guys I know is Kenny Savoy. Kenny can do voices and read a script as well as any actor I know, but what makes Kenny special is is bright open upbeat personality. He lifts the energy of everyone he meets."

"Kenny is also a great improviser. When we toured as Liquid Comedy--after the rest of us struggled before the audience with parodies of current TV shows and juvenile dialogues--Kenny brought down the house by pulling out his harmonica and ad-libbing a hilarious and clever blues song. I can also count on Kenny as a close and trusted friend. I look forward to many more years of making people laugh with Kenny Savoy!"

"The script, which I completed... poured out of me because I was inspired. I was writing it to showcase the talents of Jim Folly, the funniest man alive!"

"Jim has been a member of Liquid Comedy since we formed it in 1979. Jim is Don Rickles, Chico Marx and Allen Jenkins all rolled into one!"
