    No Longer Relevant

    Marianne August 9, 2013
    Though the original "Daws Butler's Halloween Happening" may have suited the audience of his time (when radio dramas were the equivalent of today's IMAX theaters), this new production comes off as strange and outdated. The story is clunky; the jokes fall flat; and the music sounds cheesy. There are better Halloween stories out there.

Reader Biography

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.
