Rahsaan Roland Kirk was an American jazz multi-instrumentalist who played tenor saxophone, flute and many other instruments.

Joe Bev remastered Kirk's work from his personal LP collection.

Joe Bev's in there somewhere too...

Stan Freberg (born Stanley Friberg August 7, 1926) is an American author, recording artist, animation voice actor, comedian, radio personality, puppeteer and advertising creative director, whose career began in 1944. He is still active in the industry in his mid-80s, nearly 70 years after entering it.

Comedian-actor-writer Rick Overton will make a guest appearance on The Comedy-O-Rama Hour.

"What an honor to have Rick on our radio show this week. Listeners are in for something special," says Comedy-O-Rama creator/performer Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev.).

Rick Overton and Joe Bev first met while performing the New Jersey college circuit in 1979 and shared the bill at New York's Improvisation in the early 1980s. Overton has been seen in many movies and TV shows, including "Seinfeld," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," and "Mrs. Doubtfire.' He won an Emmy for writing "The Dennis Miller Show."

On the show, Rick Overton plays Dimitri, a Russian mobster visiting the fictional camp. There is also a parody of the B-52s song "Rock Lobster," installments of "The Adventures of Teaman" and "Willoughby and the Professor", "Lum & Abner" and more.

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.

On the second edition of The Joe Bev Audio Theater:
"Arise from the Angry Seas"  Chapter 1 of "Ancient Rising" by JC Del La Torre
and & "The Little Stone Bird" by Pedro Pablo Sacristan

Copyright: 2011, DLT Atlantis Media
Duration: 11 hours, 13 minutes
Genres: action, adventure, mythology, science fiction, fantasy, radio theater


Publisher’s Summery:
Six years after its initial publication, Ancient Rising still captures the hearts and minds of adventurous readers (and now listeners) beginning their trek into the world of the Ancients. With Book I of the Rise of the Ancients saga, JC De La Torre puts together a fast paced adventure of a lifetime. Now, award winning radio theater artist Joe Bevilacqua breathes new life into the characters that make Ancient Rising one of the most exciting tales out there.

Bevilacqua introduces you to the Bev-O-Vision (TM) 3D Audiobook experience, designed to completely immerse you into the story. He weeps when the main character Dan Ryan loses someone close to him. He cries out when Ryan exclaims in pain. He becomes Ryan, Doc Constant, Mina, Hermes, and all of the colorful characters. JC De La Torre takes you on a breathless search for the lost continent of Atlantis and Bevilacqua delivers each and every action packed moment. From the debut of the Greek God Hermes, to the pits of Hades and the rise of Atlantis, Ancient Rising puts you on course for action-packed fun.

A Review from Audiobook-Heaven:
Who hasn't been fascinated by the legend of the lost continent of Atlantis? Scholars, adventurers, and readers alike have spent lifetimes trying to get to the bottom of the mystery, and still it enchants us. Now, J C De La Torre takes us on an action-packed thrill ride in search of the legend.

Best-selling author, Dan Ryan, is our guide on this tour of the ancient world. Ryan’s life is suddenly turned topsy-turvey when his wife and daughter are killed in a car accident, and he begins to wonder what he will do with the rest of his life. He finds his answer when the ancient messenger of the gods, Hermes, appears to him with a proposition. Zeus and the other gods have chosen Dan to lead an expedition to find the lost world of Atlantis where they have been imprisoned for some 12,000 years.

The journey begins at an archaeological dig in the Greek isles where Hermes reveals the location of an ancient tablet. The tablet provides a clue which leads Dan and his group of experts to the Egyptian city of Alexandria. A daring underwater discovery leads to a secret chamber beneath the Sphinx, and so on. Each new discovery provides another clue, and brings the explorers one step closer to the lost continent. Along the way, they will encounter ravenous sharks, the immortal undead, and greedy claim-jumpers who will stop at nothing to be the first to reach Atlantis. Through their skill, perseverance, and not a little luck, Dan and his group will reach their goal. Then they will finally discover the hidden agenda of the gods.

This audio production of Ancient Rising is touted as a “3-D Audiobook Experience.” I was pretty curious about that; what is a 3-D audiobook anyway? Well, it didn’t take me long to find out. Ancient Rising is performed, and I do mean performed, by long-time theater and radio talent Joe Bevilacqua. Don’t confuse him with other Joe Bevilacqua’s, the name is Joe K Bevilacqua. Joe does great voices for all the characters, and the whole thing is recorded in stereo. The main narration comes through the center channel as usual, but the character voices, along with sound effect enhancements, come from the left or right channels, giving the audiobook a real 3-D feel. With Joe’s voices, the sound enhancements, and the 3-D recording, this is a top-notch audio production.


Ancient Rising is a non-stop thrill ride through the world of the ancients. I found De La Torre’s blend of history and mythology to be fascinating and compelling. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this one.
