Joe Bev Records 58th New Radio Theater During Draft Horse Show

"Sun, Rain & The Draft Horse Show" airs Saturdays as part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, which includes The Jazz-O-Rama Hour & The Joe Bev Experience, starting 2:30 pm ET, 1:30 CT, 11:30 PT on!

This Saturday, May 11th, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour presents "Camp Waterlogg-A-Go-Go! Sun, Rain & The Draft Horse Show". The new radio play is part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, starting 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT on

Frank the Ox at the Draft Horse Show
A rooster crows, a chicken clucks, a duck quacks, a crowd gathers. Not sounds one normally expects to hear on the radio. But when the creator of that radio show is Joe Bev, anything is possible!

Bevilacqua's latest one-hour radio play is also his 58th new "Camp Waterlogg" installment in just over a year. The break neck pace at which Bev is currently working is the product of what he calls "stepping on a lightning bolt and taking a ride. I feel as if I've advanced light-years in just one."

In two week's The Comedy-O-Rama Hour will celebrate its 60th new show on Cult Radio A-Go-Go! in nearly as many weeks. "It took me four years to do 60 hours of radio theater for Sirius-XM," admits Bev.

The Baby of the Woods Rides the Draft Horses!
On this Saturday's hour of audio madness, which mixes real life and fiction, Bevilacqua takes listeners to a Colombian restaurant in Elizabeth, NJ and The Draft Horse Show in Accord, NY--writing, producing, directing and voicing most of the hour's characters himself.

Bev plays Sgt. Lefty, Ellis da Boatkeeper, Lil Andy, Sal Pilvers, Ranger Joe, and other characters, including two new arrivals to "Camp Waterlogg": Cary Gooper and Gary Cant, homages to Gary Cooper and Cary Grant.

Bev's wife and co-creator Lorie Kellogg voices Olive, Elise, Mrs. Terwilliger, Lkie, Baby of the Woods, Ranger Lorie, and others. Kenny Savoy is heard as Stinky Peter and Luigi, and Jim Folly is Marcello.

Also featured on the hour will be the 6th installment of the first new "Lum and Abner" comedy since 1954, written and performed by Donnie Pitchford, who also draws the "Lum and Abner" comic strip appearing at in a "Sunday strip" format with a new installment each Sunday.

The Comedy-O-Rama Hour is just one of four weekly hours produced, directed, written and voiced by Joe Bevilacqua, who is the recipient of the 2013 Kean University Distinguished Alumni Award.

The May 11th Joe Bev 3-Hour Block includes:
Comedy-O-Rama #58: "Sun, Rain & The Draft Horse Show"
Jazz-O-Rama #41: "Battle of the Drums 1: Papa Jo Jones vs. Philly Joe Jones"
Joe Bev Experience #37: "The Cartoon Carnival Mother's Day Special"

Peggy Dunn Letter from the Kean University Distinguished Alumni Award

Peggy Dunn Letter
from the Kean University
Distinguished Alumni Award

"To have two memorable students receive this prestigious award in the same year is mind-boggling to me. I am honored to have been a part of both of their lives not only while they were at Kean but also long after they graduated. I am so proud of all the things they have accomplished in such a variety of ways. Lou Ann is not only a successful attorney and mom but also she is fulfilling a life-long dream to create theatre, not an easy task in today's world. I am not quite sure how she caught the theatre bug but I like to think her work in college speech tournaments started her on the road to creating and producing first, children's plays and then musicals about her beloved Jersey shore.
And Joe had a dream of working in radio when most kids his age merely listened to it. All of us in theatre vied for him to be in our plays because we knew that voice alone would capture an audience. And to think he even allowed us to be in his radio shows. 
Far too many of our students are lost to us once graduation occurs although social medial is doing its part to allow students and their accomplishments to remain in our lives. It humbles me when I read or hear from any of my students because they are all working in their individual ways to make the world a better place.....a lesson I would like to think they learned at Kean."
With great admiration.

An excerpt of Joseph Bevilacqua's acceptance speech:

"...but seriously I am shocked and honored to be here amongst a scientist who’s cured cholesterol, a playwright who is also a lawyer, and all of you. Because I am just a guy doing funny voices and trying to make people laugh and make people happy.  And I hope I am doing that. But without Kean I wouldn't have accomplished anything because I was really diamond in the rough when I got here. I don’t know how they didn’t throw me out because I was thrown out of the college I went to prior. Before I went to Kean I went to Middlesex County College and they ran me out of there on a rail and told me never to come back. And I took a semester off and I said to myself “what am I doing wrong?” and I kind-a cleaned up my act, I cut my hair different, real short and  it was 1982 and I put on an IZOD shirt and looked all preppie. I walked into the studio and Peggy Dunn is there in the studio theater and right away I am sucked in and involved with everything and I felt like I was “at home” and ever since I keep coming back.  You can’t get rid of me. You throw me out, I keep coming back and doing things for the college because it was such a wonderful experience.

 And I have taught at various colleges myself and I have always been slightly disappointed at the way they look at the world and the students. Because here at Kean (I could have gone to Princeton, I could have gone to Rutgers and I came here in a “open house”), I felt as though I was in a safe environment where you could be yourself and not be ostracized for it. But they always warned you: “you’re going to be ostracized” when you get outside in the real world. The real world is not as safe. So your were warned. But you were there to try all these things and experiment with what you had. And the mentors: Peggy Dunn, Jim Murphy... (Excuse me President, you should come out of your shell more. You are so shy.)... Bob Cirasa, big mentor of mine, a wonderful man. I am glad to see he is hanging upside down in China. It’s great.

So, thank you. Thank my wonderful wife Lorie Kellogg who is half of me. My sister Caryn who is here. Ken Savoy and Tom Babkowski. Kenny is on The Comedy-O-Rama Hour. If you listen just go to waterlogg with two g’s dot com. Lou Ann, a wonderful talent, great to work with her. And thank you President Farahi and Art Snyder who came here. I haven’t seen this man since 1982, and one last thing, the man suffered through me and Garrett Gega annoying him with different voices as he is trying to read the news. So thank you and I really appreciate this. It is a wonderful thing to me. Give it up for everybody else. Thank you so much."
