"Helen Kane & Billy Costello,
the 78s of Betty Boop
& Popeye the Sailor"

William "Billy" Costello a.k.a. "Red Pepper Sam", was the original voice of Popeye the Sailor in animated cartoons. Costello had worked with the Fleischer Studio as the voice of Gus the Gorilla on the Betty Boop radio show and they felt that the raspy voice he had used for that character would work for the new Popeye character they were planning.

Helen Kane became known as the 'Boop-Boop-a-Doop Girl' because of her baby-talk, scat-singing tag line to that song. This version was recorded right when Kane's popularity started to reach its peak, and became her signature song.

Remastered Rhapsodies

What makes The Jazz-O-Rama Hour unique is that Bev remasters all the 78 RPM records he plays. "Most CD collections compress these old recordings to limit the hiss, pops and crackles. The result is a loss of the full depth of the music. I bring back all the bass, treble and mid-tones, so you can hear it all," explains Bev, who adds that listeners will notice a soft high pitched hiss on "Rhapsody in Blue," a small price to pay for the rich sound of Whiteman's band.

"Remastered Rhapsodies, including:
George Gershwin at the piano (1927)
The World premiere of the remastered "Rhapsody in Blue - The Paul Whiteman Orchestra, conducted by Nat Shilkret, with George Gershwin on piano (1927)
Creole Rhapsody - Duke Ellington and His Famous Orchestra (1931)
Fifi's Rhapsody - The John Kirby Orchestra (1941)

Jazz-O-Rama is an hour of the lighter side of early jazz--presented by Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev.)--from his personal 78rpm record collection.

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 the highest rated show on CRAGG.

CRAGG creator-owners Terry & Tiffany Dufoe add, "This is the music I listen to when I am not listening to Cult Radio A-Go-Go! and NOW thanks to Joe Bev CRAGG has the history and legacy of vintage Jazz. Joe will be the only host in CRAGG history to host two separate 60 minute shows at the same time!"

If that were not enough, Joe Bev also produces a third weekly radio hour, Cartoon Carnival, the first radio cartoon show ever, and his audiobooks are available on Amazon, iTunes, Audiobookmart, Theaudiobookstore, and Audible for Kindle, Blackberry, Android, iPhone, iPod or iPad download, or CD purchase or rental, as well as heard on Sirius-XM's Book Radio channel 80.

He is also the voice of Commander Crumpet for the Bob Camp (Ren & Stimpy) designed iPhone game Tanks of Fury produced by Iversoft, and the voice of Unicycler Cat for the North Bay Corp.TV & radio campaign.

"I've been wanting to share my 79 record collection with listeners for years, so I am very excited to present my new Jazz-O-Rama Hour!" says Joe Bev.
