OTR fans rejoice! Tired of listening to the same shows? Here are two new OTR stories, produced with wonderful sound effects and music by veteran radio theater producer Joe Bevilacqua. This hour of comedy was recorded before a live audience at SUNY Dutchess in Poughkeepsie, New York on March 20, 2007.

Includes:

Fibber McGee and Molly: “The House of Wax” It’s 1953 when Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve makes a less than triumphant return to Wistful Vita to introduce Vincent Price at the Wistful Vista Bijou premiere of the 3-D movie The House of Wax. Meanwhile, Fibber tries to save five cents by making his own 3-D glasses. Teeny, Mr. Oldtimer, Wally Wimple, Mrs. Uppington, Harlow Wilcox, and even Fibber’s closet are all there in this brand new “Fibber” tale!

Duffy’s Tavern: “If We All Talked Like Allen Jenkins” Archie, Finnegan, Eddie, Miss Duffy, and all the gang are back “where the elite meet to eat” in this first new Duffy's Tavern outing since 1952. Archie tries to lure the Shriner’s Convention to the tavern with promises of big stars he can’t deliver, not knowing the real Warner Brothers movie actors Edward G. Robinson and Allen Jenkins are hiding in the kitchen.

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.
