Review of A Guy Named Joe Bevilacqua

I really like this piece! It's takes a very creative approach to what could have been a simple, two-dimensional story. It's also very memorable-- I recall hearing this on the air, and that was over a year ago. This makes for fun listening!

Review of A Guy Named Joe Bevilacqua

Good story, with a little twist and a lot of interesting story. It's fairly conventional a safe bet for any station looking at perhaps a lighter side of name mixups or identity theft (hard to find a "lite" side to that, though).
