The Comedy-O-Rama Hour: 
We Lost the Children
but Gained Some Chickens

When Lorie Kellogg married Joe Bevilacqua in 1997, she never imagined she'd also be married to timid Ellis, brash Lefty, silly Andy, and hundreds of other characters that have been coming out of Bevilacqua's mouth since he was a child.

Kellogg ad Bev provide all the voices in Camp Waterlogg-A-Go-Go! We Lost the Children but Gained Some Chickens. Ranger Joe and Ranger Lorie hike the New York Catskill Park, leaving Sgt. Lefty and Olive Pitts to heard eleven wild baby chicks (and their mom) to safety. Meanwhile Mrs. Terwilliger, her sister, and 56 camp kids are lost in the woods.

To create such a complex radio theater hour every week, Kellogg and Bev mix real life with fiction while recording in their cabin like home, and the surrounding woods and mountains.

"Lorie and I had to save those wild chicks anyway, so we did it in the voices of Lefty and Olive. What you hear is real but not real at the same time," admits Bev who improvises about half the show with his wife each week.

Bev recorded the couple's actually hike to the Red Hill Fire Tower some 3,000 feet atop the Catskills, complete with other hikers and a real park ranger telling its history.

Sidney Bechet was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer. He was one of the first important soloists in jazz (beating cornetist and trumpeter Louis Armstrong to the recording studio by several months and later playing duets with Armstrong), and was perhaps the first notable jazz saxophonist. Forceful delivery, well-constructed improvisations, and a distinctive, wide vibrato characterized Bechet's playing.

James Fletcher Hamilton Henderson, Jr. was an American pianist, bandleader, arranger and composer, important in the development of big band jazz and swing music. His was one of the most prolific black orchestras and his influence was vast. Fletcher Henderson led the most commercially successful of the African-American Jazz bands of the 1920s. The smooth sound of his orchestra gave birth to the Swing style of the next decade.
