Union Signal is Jeff Ward and Doug Bost. From their ruined garage, they’ve been producing radio plays that have been broadcast on National Public Radio, Pacifica Radio, and Bavarian State Radio, as well as on local public radio stations across the country and on Joe Bevilacqua’s The Comedy-O-Rama Hour in its first XM Radio incarnation. Their plays have won awards with the BBC and the Midwest Radio Theater Workshop, as well as the Mark Time Award and the Charles Ogle Award.

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.
