Host: Bertie Pearson

Bertie Pearson found music during high school in Austin, Texas. After high school he was in bands and toured the country. But long before that, when he was just seven, Bertie told his father “I want to be a priest.” His atheist father said “That’s fine, if you believe there’s a big guy in the sky who controls everything.” Now the Reverend Bertie Pearson works for the Episcopal Diocese in San Francisco and plays in a synthpop band called Altars. And though he’s no Christian rocker, he’s very much Christian, and very much a rocker.
