Veteran award-winning producer Joe Bevilacqua hosts this hour-long program outlining the history of Threadgill’s and Armadillo World Headquarters, their contribution to the birth of the Austin music scene, and their influence on the Nashville sound and country rock.

“This program offers a soup to nuts history of Austin’s growth into the live music Mecca that it’s become today. The show is more than just contemporary talking heads and music—it features an amazing collection of archival interviews and recordings (including tape of some never-before-heard early Janis Joplin performances, which should qualify as an authentic archival treasure). The production is well put-together, flowing smoothly between many different elements.”—Eric Nuzum, NPR’s vice president of programming

About the Author

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.
