Loudenphat’s Radio Revival
As a result of Loudenphat’s inept use of his satellite pirate radio takeover technology, Loudenphat’s Radio Revival ends up being an incredibly eclectic collection of music from all genres from rock to funk to R&B to country to metal to jazz to blues to comedy to grunge to alternative and the indescribable, as well as much of Loudenphat’s original ministry material.

Brother Jeremiah Loudenphat is the world’s foremost combat televangelist and is the world’s record holder in fast draw evangelism, having once saved a man from the pits of Hell using only half a Bible verse from Deuteronomy. He once swam the English channel – backwards; climbed Everest – blindfolded; and memorized the internet – all because of God’s blessing. The leading expert scholar on the hyperbolic anointing (patent pending), until recently, Loudenphat was on the move practicing his ministry in a mobile satellite unit that operated as a pirate radio broadcast tower, taking over random FM radio frequencies. (Which is a federal offense) However, Brother Loudenphat was apprehended by federal law enforcement while in the hospital after contracting Covid-19 (because he refused to wear a mask, claiming the germs were scared of his freedom). He is now serving a sentence of 147 years in the North Dakota State Penitentiary for fraud, racketeering, embezzlement, transporting stolen goods across state lines, tax evasion, and violating agricultural quarantine laws.
