New podcast: The Joe Bev Experience,"True Taxi Stories"







True Taxi Stories
Host Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev)




COMING SOON TO
 BLACKSTONE AUDIO
The program begins with an audio excerpt from Bevilacqua's own personal story: Cancer Cabby Chronicles.

A diagnosis of cancer is never welcomed by anyone. But for veteran radio producer Joe Bevilacqua  (Joe Bev), his diagnosis had a silver lining. He struck up an unexpected friendship with the cab driver who took him to his radiation treatments, a Chilean immigrant named Patrick Nilo (owner of CJ Cabs, Ellenville, New York) who came to the US in 1973. We go for a ride with them.

Patrick Nilo and Joe Bevilacqua 
This intimate audio vérité conveys a candid realism that will make listeners will feel as if they are in the cab with Joe and Patrick as they share very personal stories of their lives. It was recorded in November and December 2014 by Joe during two months of one hour cab rides from his home in Napanoch to Dyson Center for Cancer Care in Poughkeepsie, New York and back again.

"As I told Patrick during one of our cab rides, I feel like getting cancer was my lucky charm. I met so many new people and had so many new experiences that have made me a better person. Patrick has called me "a winner" and has encouraged me to get my positive story out to the world," reveals Joe Bev.

Joe Bev completed his prostate cancer treatments on December 1, 2014, with a clean bill of health after 48 radiation treatments. A 5 minute and 20 second collage of his cab ride recordings was broadcast on National Public Radio's Latino USA on March 13, 2015: http://latinousa.org/2015/03/13/what-your-cabbie-can-teach-you/.

The complete 4 1/2 hour Cancer Cabby Chronicles is available on MP3 an CD from Blackstone Audio.

Also on the hour, Candid Microphone: Getting Change from a Cab Driver, aired on CBS Radio August 31, 1947.
Candid Microphone was a 1940s radio show which soon became the long-running TV series "Candid Camera" (38 seasons and 1,000+

Allen Funt
episodes). The show involved scenarios in which unwitting members of the public would be placed in a situation where unusual things began happening (caused by actors hired by the producers as well as various props). The victim of the prank's reactions would be recorded and at some stage the joke is finally revealed to them.

Joe Bev began making up stories into a tape recorder when he was twelve in 1971. 44 years and hundreds of hours of radio broadcasting later, and he’s still creating unusual audio that defies categorization. Whether it is creating a half-hour radio play, documentaries, features or personal essays for National Public Radio, or performing on stage before a live audience, he has made a career out of imaginative storytelling in the best aural traditions of the past.

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.
