Although Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, his career has taken him into every aspect of show business. Joe Bev has released hundreds of hours of his audio work through Blackstone Audio. He has acted such films as "The Green Blade Rises", "The Fly Room", "Cold in July", and "Hits" (directed by David Cross), and on TV, as British General Bernard Montgomery in the History Channel's The Wars and the Head of NBC Radio (circa 1931) on HBO's Boardwalk Empire.

Challenge of the Yukon was a radio series that began on Detroit's station WXYZ (as had The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet), and an example of a Northern genre story. The series was first heard on February 3, 1938. The title changed from Challenge of the Yukon to Sergeant Preston of the Yukon in November 1951, and remained under that name through the end of the series and into television. The program was an adventure series about Sergeant William Preston of the North-West Mounted Police and his lead sled dog, Yukon King, as they fought evildoers in the Northern wilderness during the Gold Rush of the 1890s.

Volume One: 

"Joe Bevilacqua is an amazingly talented actor and producer who brings these stories to life! You will think you are listening to actual old time radio!" (Jim Harmon, OTR historian and author)

"Are you a fan of old-time radio? Do you wish they were still making those wonderful programs so you wouldn’t have to keep listening to the same old episodes again and again? Do you poop out at parties? Do you wish I would stop asking so many questions? Well wish no more o traveler of the airwaves. From Joe Bevilacqua and his Waterlogg Productions, the vita-veeta-vegemin of old-time radio, comes this echo from a bygone era. It’s The New Stories of Old-Time Radio! That’s right, creator, writer, and narrator Joe Bev has taken some of his own favorite radio programs, and created brand new episodes for all of us to enjoy. Contained in this set are all original episodes of Our Miss Brooks, Tom Mix, Candy Matson Yukon 2-8209, The Clyde Beatty Show, The Green Llama, and Sgt. Preston of the Yukon. Assisting Joe Bevilacqua on the narrating duties, is his wife and creative partner Lorie Kellogg. With these two working together, you really don’t need anyone else. They can create more unique voices between the two of them than you can shake a radio at." (Audiobook Heaven)


What the Critics Say about Joe Bev's The New Stories of Old-Time Radio:

"From the creators of The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes, and Old-Time Radio Parodies, comes yet one more nugget of creative gold. It’s Uncle Dunkle and Donnie ! Every day, little Donnie stops by for a visit with his old Uncle Dunkle, and occasionally Aunt Rapunzel, and the old-timers always have a new story to share with their favorite (and only) nephew.


"This collection contains 35 of the aforementioned stories. Sometimes the tales have a lesson for young Donnie, like the story of how Alexander the Elephant learned to remember what his mother told him, and sometimes the stories are just plain silly, like the story of how Uncle Dunkle and Aunt Rapunzel met, high atop Mt. Everest. But always the stories will make you laugh, with that special brand of humor that seems to be all but forgotten in this day and age. That’s right, Daws Butler and Joe Bevilacqua are funny without being vulgar. And it’s fun for all ages. Some of the jokes are the silly kind that kids enjoy, while others are the more subtle kind that adults can appreciate.


"In Uncle Dunkle and Donnie , Joe Bevilacqua conducts an absolute clinic on the art of voice acting. Like it says in the publisher’s summary, Bevilacqua voices all 97 of the characters in these 35 episodes. His voices are unique and are delivered flawlessly. And he also writes stories and music! This is quite a talented guy. As with Joe Bev’s other Waterlogg Productions, the music and sound effects are well done, and the sound quality is very good.

"Hey, do yourself a favor, and take a break from the murder mysteries and vampire stories for a while. Sit back and let the old pros entertain you. This is 5 hours of listening pleasure that you won’t regret." (Audiobook Heaven)
