Reviews of The New Adventures of Johnny Dollar, Volume One: "A must buy for anyone who is a fan of cartoon voices or of old radio shows.""Joe's personal flair gives these recreations a life of their own.""I love the works of Joe Bev. He's done fun radio shows in the past and can impersonate lots of famous voices.""Clever scripts and great that you use the language of the day.""Good choice of incidental music, all in keeping with the style of a Johnny Dollar episode. We'll done.""These shows have been lovingly recreated and the production, editing, and mixing are first rate. Highly recommended just for that!"
