PubRadio Vet Joe Bev Reveals His Cancer Battle on NPR's Latino USA premiering Friday, March 13, 2015
The award-winning actor, writer, producer finds silver lining in prostate cancer: a Chilean immigrant named Patrick Nilo (owner of CJ Cabs, Ellenville, New York).
Bevilacqua recorded his cab rides and a 4-minute collage will be broadcast on National Public Radio's Latino USA (http://latinousa.org/)
Bev completed his prostate cancer treatments on December 1, 2015, with a clean bill of health after 48 radiation treatments.
In addition, the complete four hours of cab ride audio is coming out May 2015, as an audio book, "The Cancer Cabby Chronicles,"
This intimate audio vérité conveys a candid realism that will make listeners will feel as if they are in the cab with Joe and Patrick as they share very personal stories of their lives. It was recorded in November and December 2014 by Joe during two months of one hour cab rides from his home in Napanoch to Dyson Center for Cancer Care in Poughkeepsie, New York and back again.
"As I told Patrick during one of our cab rides, I feel like getting cancer was my lucky charm. I met so many new people and had so many new experiences that have made me a better person. Patrick has called me "a winner" and has encouraged me to get my positive story out to the world," reveals Joe Bev.
Bev also produces, directs, writes and voices half of The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, and produces 14 other shows: The Joe Bev Experience, Cartoon Carnival, The Joe Bev Audio Theater, The Voice Actor Show, Lorie's Book Nook, Fred Frees Favorites, Audio Classics Archive, The J-OTR Show, The Lost OTR Show, Aroma Thyme Radio, What's Cooking?, The Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Celebrity Interviews, and the upcoming new show Movies on the Air.
