Blogging 159: The unofficial Catholic Channel blog


Father Harry revealed


For regular listeners of The Catholic Channel, a 60-second promo by a man named Father Harry causes mass hysteria, due to the relative anonymity of such a voice and the strange inebriated words of wisdom mixed in with popular music.

However, using a little elbow grease on Google, I was able to track down this man, and he is none other than Monsignor Harry Schlitt, who serves as the Vicar for Administration and Moderator of the Curia in the San Francisco Archdiocese. Apparently, he's been "Father Harry" on the radio for years.

You can download some more Father Harry here, at the Bay Area Radio Museum. Now, after being able to pair the Sirius promos with an identity and face, they aren't as creepy anymore.

    Now that's a lede if I ever read one. :-)

    Father Harry was a good friend in the 60's. Bill Pledger (Bee Sharp), Jim Stanley, Cliff House and at the time I was married to Chicken Man for KICK radio in Springfield..He was awesome! Congratulations Padre on your retirement! Enjoy slowing down!
