COUNT BASIE
William "Count" Basie was an American jazz pianist, organist, bandleader, and composer. His mother first taught him piano and he started performing in his teens. Dropping out of school, he learned to operate lights for vaudeville and to improvise accompaniment for silent films at a local movie theater in his town of Red Bank, New Jersey. By 16, he increasingly played jazz piano at parties, resorts and other venues. In 1924, he went to Harlem, where his performing career expanded; he toured with groups to the major jazz cities of Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. In 1929 he joined Bennie Moten's band in Kansas City, and played with them until Moten's death in 1935.



That year Basie formed his own jazz orchestra, and in 1936 took them to Chicago for a long engagement and their first recording. He led the group for almost 50 years, creating innovations like the use of two "split" tenor saxophones, emphasizing the rhythm section, riffing with a big band, using arrangers to broaden their sound, and others. Many notable musicians came to prominence under his direction, including the tenor saxophonists Lester Young and Herschel Evans, the guitarist Freddie Green, trumpeters Buck Clayton and Harry "Sweets" Edison and singers Jimmy Rushing and Joe Williams. Basie's theme songs were "One O'Clock Jump," developed in 1935 in the early days of his band, and "April In Paris".

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.

The Comedy-O-Rama Hour: Camp Waterlogg: The Bollywood Honeymoon of Lefty & Olive


The Comedy-O-Rama Hour
Camp Waterlogg: The Bollywood Honeymoon of Lefty & Olive 
Lefty & Olive in puppet form bedazzled
 by the sites & sounds of India
 In the hour, Sgt. Lefty (Joe Bev) and Olive Pitts (Lorie Kellogg) are magically whisked off to India for their honeymoon by famous Indian magician Kutmar Kutmar (Joe Bev), leaving the Camp Waterloggers bewildered: Ellis da Boatkeeper, Adam Maxwell, Woody, Lil Andy (all Joe Bev)  and Elise, Like, and Mrs. Terwilliger (all Lorie Kellogg).

Meanwhile, Stinky and Luigi (both Kenny Savoy) start digging out of a freak snow storm. 

Since he was twelve, Joe Bev has been creating original radio theater, first from his childhood bedroom in Iselin, New Jersey.

Forty years later, Bev has defied fickle broadcasting trends and found a home for his audio theater on such radio stations as WBAI, WNYC, and networks such NPR and Sirius-XM, around the world via Internet radio, Audible, Amazon and Blackstone Audio.

"Our characters really interact a lot in this week's show, so we did a lot of talking to ourselves!" laughs Bevilacqua, who maps out the plot of each hour and improvises the dialogue, not from a studio but in the real world, including the woods of Napanoch, NY.

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 for XM Satellite Radio, 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.

Lorie Kellogg is the co-producer. Kellogg started her education at the Kansas City Art Institute. There she studied painting, printmaking, photography, commercial design and video. She continued to Graduate School at the California Institute of the Arts where she received her MFA in Film/Video.
