A diagnosis of cancer is never welcomed by anyone. But for veteran radio producer Joe Bevilacqua, his diagnosis had a silver lining. He struck up an unexpected friendship with the cab driver who took him to his radiation treatments, a Chilean immigrant named Patrick Nilo (owner of CJ Cabs, Ellenville, New York) who came to the United States in 1973. We go for a ride with them. This intimate audio vérité conveys a candid realism that will make listeners feel as if they are in the cab with Joe and Patrick as they share the very personal stories of their lives. It was recorded in November and December 2014 by Joe during one-hour cab rides from his home in Napanoch to the 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. Joe Bev completed his prostate-cancer treatments on December 1, 2014, with a clean bill of health after 48 radiation treatments. A brief collage of his cab ride recordings was broadcast on National Public Radio's Latino USA on March 13, 2015. Bonus Tracks: Also included in this set is an interview with Joe Bevilacqua, conducted by Steve Mendoza. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Nilo, Joe Bevilacqua.

Like a blazing shooting star, Jenni Rivera lit up the lives of millions of people, yet the sky swept her away before her time. A complete, entertaining, and objective biography. Written by one of the country’s leading experts in Latin music. Jenni Rivera was the top-selling artist within the Regional Mexican music genre. With a weekly radio show, her own reality show, a makeup and clothing line, and her own foundation, she was at the height of her career and life. Everything she had conquered, with blood, sweat, tears, and smiles, happened, as she said, with God leading her by the hand. However her life, her dreams, and the joy she shared with so many came to a tragic end just before dawn on December 9, 2012. In Jenni Rivera: The Incredible Story of a Warrior Butterfly, Leila Cobo - pianist, TV host, and Executive Director for Latino content and programming at Billboard - brings us Jenni Rivera’s intimate and moving biography, reflecting on the party girl, the elegant woman, the great diva, the friend, the mother, and the grandmother. Discover the humble beginnings of Jenni’s life and career, as well as the emotional and sometimes turbulent moments that defined her persona and spirit. Like a candle blown out before her time, we not only lost the “Unforgettable One,” the “Queen of Queens,” the “Warrior Butterfly,” we also lost a brave woman who fearlessly faced life’s ups and downs to attain the happiness she so fervently wanted for herself and her family. With Jenni’s departure, we celebrate a shining legacy that will forever reverberate within every note of her voice. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alma Cuervo.
