"Cartoon Carnival Explores Outer Space" - Revised!

Cartoon Carnival 

Explores Outer Space

Produced by Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev

Walter and JoePuppet by Craig Marin
"Powerhouse" (1937) is an
 instrumental musical composition
 by Raymond Scott, perhaps
 best known today as the iconic
"assembly line" music in
animated cartoons released
by Warner Bros.
Guest host Walter Cockeyed (Joe Bev) returns as guest host, substituting for Joe Bevilacqua while he's in outer space, featuring audio from the first two "Ruff and Reddy" cartoons (1957), Mel Blanc as Daffy, Marvin the Martian and Porky in "Duck Dodgers in the 241/2 Century" (1953) and as Bugs Bunny and Marvin in "Hare-Way to the Stars" (1958), and "Huckleberry Hound Goes to the Moon" (2010) - voiced by Joe Bevilacqua & Lorie Kellogg, based on the 1960 Hanna-Barbera Golden book, written by Carl Memling, illustrated by Norman McGary and Hawley Pratt.

Plus, Professor Ludwig Von Whatchmacallit (Fred Frees) introduces the show from his rocket ship!

This revised version of an earlier special also includes The Raymond Scott Quintette performing Powerhouse on 78 RPM record (1937) and live on the NBC TV show "Your Hit Parade" on April 16, 1955. 


Professor Ludwig is right! You can SEE the music on this video of Raymond Scott on NBC's "Your Hit Parade:

In electronics and telecommunications, modulation is the process of varying one or more properties of a periodic waveform, called the carrier signal, with a modulating signal that typically contains information to be transmitted. (WIKI)

In telecommunications, modulation is the process of conveying a message signal, for example a digital bit stream or an analog audio signal, inside another signal that can be physically transmitted. Modulation of a sine waveform transforms a baseband message signal into a passband signal.

A modulator is a device that performs modulation. A demodulator (sometimes detector or demod) is a device that performs demodulation, the inverse of modulation. A modem (from modulator–demodulator) can perform both operations.

A low-frequency message signal (top) may be carried by an AM or FM radio wave.

Raymond Scott (born Harry Warnow, September 10, 1908 – February 8, 1994)[1] was an American composer, band leader, pianist, engineer, recording studio maverick, and electronic instrument inventor. (WIKI)
Although Scott never scored cartoon soundtracks, his music is familiar to millions because of its adaptation by Carl Stalling in over 120 classic Bugs BunnyPorky PigDaffy Duck and other Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies animated shorts. Scott's melodies may also be heard in contemporary shows like Ren and Stimpy (which use the original Scott recordings in twelve episodes), The SimpsonsDuckman,AnimaniacsThe Oblongs, and Batfink. The only music Scott actually composed to accompany animation were three 20-second electronic commercial jingles for County Fair Bread in 1962.

Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev, is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist, but his career has taken him into every aspect of show business, including stage, film, and television, as a producer, director, writer, actor, and even cartoonist. In 1971 his father bought him a cassette recorder, on which he created his first audio story, Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of twelve. In 1975 Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many other Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Bevilacqua’s personal mentor after hearing a 120-minute cassette of Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980 Bevilacqua has produced many award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, and others.

"Joe has also combed through those mounds of audio (if I may mix metaphors) to come up with Volume One of "The Best of Cartoon Carnival." This features Joe's personal interviews, some of whom are no longer around to talk today: Joe Barbera, Leonard Maltin, Bob Clampett, Stan Freberg, Daws Butler, Mel Blanc, Bill Marx, June Foray, Bill Scott, Hoyt Curtin, and Craig Marin. The almost three-hour compilation show also features narration from Doug Young (Doggie Daddy) and Janet Waldo (Judy Jetson), both happily still with us today."   - Don Yowp

Incredibly, Joe Bev currently acts on stage, TV and in movies, reports for NPR (All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, Latino USA), and still finds time to produce 36 unique hours of radio every month, 12 of which are underwritten by book publisher BearManor Media. They are The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour, The Joe Bev Experience, Cartoon Carnival, The Joe Bev Audio Theater, The Joe Bev Sunday Edition, The Voice Actor Show, The J-OTR Show, The Lost OTR Show, and The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention Celebrity Interviews (all of which are also hosted by Joe Bev), plus shows hosted by others: Lorie's Book Nook with Lorie Kellogg, Fred Frees Favorites with Fred Frees, What's Cookin'? with Chef Steve Mendoza, Aroma Thyme Radio with Chef Marcus Guiliano, and Movies on the Air with Bryan Hendrickson.
