Lorie & Joe

“If there was an award for best husband and wife narrating team, I think the clear winners would be Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg. Come to think of it, why isn’t there an award for best husband and wife narrating team? Somebody needs to look into that. Anyway, individually, Joe and Lorie are both extremely talented voice artists. They can both do lots of entertaining voices, not just characterizations but whole personalities, and they both have a fine flair for drama, satire, and comedy. Put them together and, well, need I say more? If you haven’t heard these two at work, you’re missing out on something special.”      - Steven Brandt, Audiobook-Heaven

When Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) was a student his final semester at Kean College (now Kean University) in the Spring of 1982, he designed his own course in which he produced and directed a radio version of Hamlet.

Casting Kean faculty and students, and portraying the melancholy Danish prince himself, Bevilacqua not only completed his nearly four hour radio adaption of Shakespeare's greatest work, he did so while carrying a double major in Speech-Theater-Media-Communication and English, producing, acting in and sometime writing radio plays for The WKNJ Radio Theater he founded at the college station, rehearsing and acting in the college production of "Bedroom Farce", and working 20 hours per week as the Assistant Manager of Kean's Writing and Math Lab.

After graduating Summa Cum Laude, Bevilacqua's production of "Hamlet" was picked up and distributed by The National Federation of Community Broadcasters (NFCB) and aired on public radio stations nationwide.

Bevilacqua went on to become one of the most prolific radio drama producers in the United States, as well as an on-camera actor in such films as The Fly Room and The Better Angels and television shows, including portraying British General Bernard Montgomery in The History Channel's The Wars and the head of NBC in 1931 for HBO's Boardwalk Empire.

The master reels of Joe Bevilacqua's radio production of Hamlet were lost in the 1980s. On January 6, 2015, while going through some old files Bevilacqua came across an NFCB newsletter listing a number of his radio dramas, including Hamlet. He then traced the NFCB collection to The University of Maryland Libraries, where it now resides.
The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare at an uncertain date between 1599 and 1602. Set in the Kingdom of Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet is instructed to enact on his uncle Claudius. Claudius had murdered his own brother, Hamlet's father King Hamlet, and subsequently seized the throne, marrying his deceased brother's widow, Hamlet's mother Gertrude.


From the NFCB newsletter:
    This four-hour drama is both faithful to Shakespeare and creative in presentation. The acting is of professional quality. Joe Bev highlights the play as Hamlet by using great change of pace and dynamics, articulation and believability, along with superb vocal range. After hearing a tape of the production, veteran voice-man Daws Butler (Yogi Bear) said, "It is among the best Hamlets I have ever heard."
    Other highlights are the ghost's reverb processed bass and Claudius attempting to pray after murdering the king.
    Tech is good, the acting is excellent. You will understand every word, and get the full range of meaning (from tragic to comic) from the characters! Great use of sound effects and music!

BONUS TRACK: Another Point Of View (Hamlet Revisited), originally aired on The CBS Radio Workshop June 22, 1956. An analytical misrepresentation of Shakespeare's greatest hero, with William Conrad (narrator, author), Ben Wright (Hamlet, author), and John McIntire. 

These stories are available from Blackstone Audio and Waterlogg Productions, for purchase at all online vendors.

The Joe Bev Audio Theater is a one hour weekly anthology representing more than forty years of storytelling by Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev), the veteran, award-winning actor, writer, producer, director. Joe Bevilacqua, also known as Joe Bev is primarily known as a radio theater dramatist. However, 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.

The Ology of Isms, a Nigerian twist on Hans Christian Anderson's classic fairy tale "The Emperor's New Clothes", written by Nigerian playwright Emmanuel Adeleye. This radio theater and produced by Joe Bevilacqua, and features sound effects, music, and a full cast.

Emmanuel Adeleye was born in Nigeria in 1961. After graduating high school, he worked with the Nigerian Television Authority and with the Federation Radio Corporation of Nigeria, as a playwright, actor and artist. He came to the United States where he studied theater at Kean College (now University) in Union, New Jersey.

In 1981, Adeleye teamed with Joe Bevilacqua to create "The Ology of Isms", his first radio play ever presented in the United States:  on first aired on WKNJ Radio and later Sirius-XM Satellite Radio.


Though best known for The Red Badge of Courage, his classic novel of men at war, Stephen Crane produced a wealth of other stories that stand among the most acclaimed and enduring in the history of American fiction.
This adaptation of Crane’s classic short story “The Pace of Youth” was produced with wonderful sound effects and music by veteran radio theater producer Joe Bevilacqua, who is joined in the fine cast by William Melillo, Cathi Tully, Peter Cummings, and Leslie Spital.

Stephen Crane (1871–1900) was an American novelist, poet and journalist. He worked as a reporter of slum life in New York and a highly paid war correspondent for newspaper tycoons William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. He wrote many works of fiction, poems, and accounts of war, all well received but none as acclaimed as his 1895 Civil War novel The Red Badge of Courage. Today he is considered one of the most innovative American writers of the 1890s and one of the founders of literary realism.


Pedro Pablo Sacristan was born in Madrid and graduated with an MBA from a prestigious business school. His passion for education and writing led him to create Bedtime Stories, short stories that help teach kids values.

In 1971, Joe Bevilacqua's father bought him a cassette recorder, on which is created his first audio story: Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of 12. In 1975, Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Joe Bev's personal mentor, after hearing 120 minute cassette of Bev's Willoughby improvisations. Since 1980, Bevilacqua has produced any award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius-XM Satellite Radio and others.
