"Reverend Billy" in some people's minds should be followed by "Graham."
But that's not the Reverend Billy we plan to talk to. THIS Reverend Billy is known to public radio audiences for his appearances on West Coast Live and other shows.
He is the leader of the Church of Stop Shopping, a collection of singers and performers who oppose consumerism, militarism, and other isms.
William Talen (his given name) wrote a book called "The Earth Wants You;" his visits as part of a string of West Coast appearances.
