Reverend Billy Radio
Billy is the pastor of "The Church of Stop Shopping" in New York City. Although his church has tens of thousands of members, Billy is "a preacher with an unknown god". He is not Christian, but wears a priest's collar and televangelist's hair. His followers shout "Earthalujah!" and "Change-a-lujah!" on the sidewalks. He started the show while locked down in NY, with death raining down on the skyscrapers. He likes to stop preaching suddenly and play music. In his show, "The Fiery Eagles of Justice", a jazz trio that is hard to fathom, and "The Stop Shopping Choir" a 35 voice chorus of trespassing activists - help the reverend slide into his next sermonette. Proud part of Pantheon - the podcast network for music lovers."It's an act! It's an art! It's almost a religion!" ---Constance Hays, the New York Times
