In 1971, Bevilacqua's father bought him a cassette recorder, on which is created his first audio story: Willoughby and the Professor, acting all the voices himself at the age of 12.
In 1975, Daws Butler, the voice of Yogi Bear and many Hanna-Barbera and Jay Ward cartoon characters, dubbed himself Joe Bev's personal mentor, after hearing 120 minute cassette of Bev's Willoughby improvisations.
Since 1980, Bevilacqua has produced any award-winning radio programs for National Public Radio, Sirius XM Radio and others.
