"These are not old time radio shows, but incredible simulations!" beams veteran award-winning radio producer Joe Bevilacqua, who voiced most of the audiobook, including dead-on impressions of Paul Frees as The Green Lama, Gale Gordon as Mr. Conklin, Richard Crenna as Walter Denton, Paul Sutton as Sgt. Preston, and even essays some of the woman roles, including the voice of Candy Matson! For the woman roles Bevilacqua could not voice, he turned to his talented wife and creative partner Lorie Kellogg, who has acted in many of his radio theater productions in the past. Kellogg is the voice of Eve Arden's Connie Brooks in the new Our Miss Brooks story, as well as voicing her landlady Mrs. Davis, Clyde Beatty's wife, and other roles. "OTR fans tired of listening to the same old recordings over and over will love these new audio stories!" concludes Bevilacqua. "Joe Bev." (as he also known) is a veteran radio drama producer, whose past credits include XM Radio's The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes, and Old-time Radio Parodies.
"The enthusiasm of the writers and their respect for the period is infectious." (Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine)
"Joe Bevilacqua is an amazingly talented actor and producer who brings these stories to life! You will think you are listening to actual old time radio!" (Jim Harmon, OTR historian and author)
"Are you a fan of old-time radio? Do you wish they were still making those wonderful programs so you wouldn’t have to keep listening to the same old episodes again and again? Do you poop out at parties? Do you wish I would stop asking so many questions? Well wish no more o traveler of the airwaves. From Joe Bevilacqua and his Waterlogg Productions, the vita-veeta-vegemin of old-time radio, comes this echo from a bygone era. It’s The New Stories of Old-Time Radio! That’s right, creator, writer, and narrator Joe Bev has taken some of his own favorite radio programs, and created brand new episodes for all of us to enjoy. Contained in this set are all original episodes of Our Miss Brooks, Tom Mix, Candy Matson Yukon 2-8209, The Clyde Beatty Show, The Green Llama, and Sgt. Preston of the Yukon. Assisting Joe Bevilacqua on the narrating duties, is his wife and creative partner Lorie Kellogg. With these two working together, you really don’t need anyone else. They can create more unique voices between the two of them than you can shake a radio at." (Audiobook Heaven)
