The Reverend's Annual Holiday Tree and Balls Special

This themed show was another fun tradition on The Reverend Is In show. We posted two past shows as a kind of 10 year challenge. For some, the holidays have been at least partially stressful or depressing. It was our job to try to reverse that and provide great laughs and music. Now we are preparing to acknowledge the true deity: Brian from Monty Python's Life of Brian film.

Radio Volta

We now mark 20 of Independent Media Centers, most notably in Seattle during the anti-World Trade Organization actions. In Philadelphia, the IMC gave rise to Radio Volta which is where The Reverend Is In began. A detailed history was provided on most of our anniversary shows. Congrats to Philly IMC for 20 years of action and the recent reunion/ party. Thank you Thomas for reconnecting us.

You Tube

It is truly amazing how bad YouTube has become. Recently, a concert video was interrupted for an ad. Ads continue to appear directly on videos. It is time for discussions about the creation of viable alternatives. Perhaps one of the useless billionaires running for prez (any party) can pursue this more worthwhile effort.

Psycho Update

I'll start by responding to a question. No, the obsessive behaviors and mental issues did not begin with Nancy Mergatroyd's attacks on me. There is a significant history of harassment, stalking, cyber bullying and abusing nearly everyone who was ever in her life. This is all part of a long-standing Jihadist pattern. She routinely issues threats and efforts of intimidation. That means nothing to me. There is no chance that the fake site that bears my name will be met with silence. The Nancy Mergatroyd site shall be relaunched. Apologies for the delay. Her rationalizations and distortions of reality continue to be absurd. It merits repeating that posting in my name is unacceptable, even if the content was not laughably stupid and posted by a psycho.

Joke of the Month: One can still be labelled a “misogynist” for not supporting war-criminal, Trump-Lite, Wall Street rep Hillary Clinton lol.
