Joe Bev has been producing radio in many genres since 1971 when he was 12. At 19 in 1980, Bev became the youngest person to produce a radio show for public radio. He co-hosted The Jazz Show with Garret Gega in the early 80s, a four hour a week mix classic jazz and comedy. Bev also worked for WBGO, Jazz 88 in Newark, NJ and produced documentaries for WNYC New York Public Radio on jazz legends including Louis Armstrong, Wynton Marsalis, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Cab Calloway, and Lionel Hampton.
Bev also produces, directs, writes and voices half of The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, which is has been highest rated radio show on Cult Radio A-Go-Go! for many weeks. Joe Bev's other weekly radio show, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour debuted two Saturdays ago at #2.
The veteran voice actor is about to add his third hour for Cult Radio, called The Joe Bev Experience which will air right after The Jazz-O-Rama Hour, giving him a three hour block of air time.
On the Saturday, July 21 premiere of The Joe Bev Experience, will be a new episode (the 53rd) of Cartoon Carnival, in which one of Bev's many alter egos Mr. Jazzbo (a talking 78 RPM record) introduces soundtracks from Max Fleischer, MGM and Warner Brothers Cartoons that feature classic jazz
