Thomas Wright Waller was the youngest of four children born to Adaline Locket Waller and the Reverend Edward Martin Waller.
Fats Waller
He started playing the piano when he was six and graduated to the organ of his father's church four years later. At the age of fourteen he was playing the organ at Harlem's Lincoln Theater and within twelve months he had composed his first rag. Waller's first piano solos ("Muscle Shoals Blues" and "Birmingham Blues") were recorded in October 1922 when he was 18 years old.

He was the prize pupil, and later friend and colleague, of stride pianist James P. Johnson. Fats Waller was the son of a preacher and learned to play the organ in church with his mother. Overcoming opposition from his clergyman father, Waller became a professional pianist at 15, working in cabarets and theaters. In 1918 he won a talent contest playing Johnson's "Carolina Shout", a song he learned from watching a player piano play it.

Fats Waller
Waller composed many novelty swing tunes in the 1920s and 1930s and sold them for relatively small sums. When the compositions became hits, other songwriters claimed them as their own. Many standards are alternatively and sometimes controversially attributed to Waller, including "I Can't Give You Anything but Love, Baby". Waller copyrighted over 400 new songs, many of which co-written with his closest collaborator Andy Razaf. In 1926, Waller began his recording association with Victor Records, his principal record company for the rest of his life.

The Zombie cocktail so named for its effects on the partaker was invented by Donn Beach of Hollywood's Don the Beachcomber restaurant in the 1930's, Became popular when served at the 1939 New York Worlds Fair. In 1940, pianist Fats Waller recorded a novelty song called "Abercrombie Had a Zombie" about the effects of the cocktail on a previously law-abiding citizen who has a few zombies and becomes a public menace. The song also mentions Aquacade and other features of the 1939 New York World's Fair where the drink was popularized.



Joe Bev
Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) has been producing radio in many genres since 1971 when he was 12. At 19 in 1980, Bev became the youngest person to produce a radio show for public radio. He co-hosted The Jazz Show with Garret Gega in the early 80s, a four hour a week mix classic jazz and comedy. Bev also worked for WBGO, Jazz 88 in Newark, NJ and produced documentaries for WNYC New York Public Radio on jazz legends including Louis Armstrong, Wynton Marsalis, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Cab Calloway, and Lionel Hampton. 

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 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.

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.
