"There are hundreds of hours of great audio not being heard on radio today," says Bevilacqua. "Radio theater, comedy, long form documentary are no longer heard in any great amount, even on public radio. But with the proliferation of high speed Internet, Wi-FI, and handheld devices, these neglected genres are finding new audiences."
Bevilacqua's first outing into distribution is Radio Tales for the Road, an ongoing series of transformational journeys through time, space and memory, written, produced, and narrated by public radio stalwart Barbara Bernstein.
Radio Tales fore the Road, Volume 1 is available at Amazon, iTunes, Audiobookmart, Theaudiobookstore, and Audible for Kindle, Blackberry, Android, iPhone, iPod or iPad download, or CD purchase or rental

Combining story-telling, documentary audio, radio drama, and original music, Radio Tales are vivid recollections of the Summer of Love, the Days of Rage, discovering the wilderness, and the dysfunctional families that propelled so many of us to create our own realities. These wild and edgy tales dispel the notion that if you remember the sixties you weren't really there.
In "Getting Lost", Bernstein contrasts personal experiences of being lost in the wilderness, as a young hippie gets lost in Big Sur on her first trip out west and then 30 years later as a seasoned hiker, when she gets lost in a canyon in Southern Utah and meets the many faces of Coyote the Trickster.
In "Hidden Waters", Bernstein explores life and death on underground rivers and underwater waterfalls, the ghosts of once abundant salmon fisheries that were formally waterfalls and rapids, now inundated behind the dams on the Columbia River, and then a culverted river in the producer's hometown on the day of her father's funeral.
Radio Tales for the Road was broadcast on Oregon Public Broadcasting, KBOO-FM, and other stations in 2000 and 2003.
Barbara Bernstein has been producing radio documentaries for over 20 years and has received numerous awards, including quite a few NFCB Golden and Silver Reels and two NLGJA Radio awards. Her most recent productions are two one-hour documentaries"
