Mike Church (born 1962) is an American radio and internet talk show host, and singer/songwriter.
The Mike Church Show was the first-ever produced talk show on Sirius Satellite Radio (now Sirius XM Radio). Prior to its cancellation in October, 2015, Church's show was the longest-running program on satellite radio. His final live show on Sirius XM aired on the morning of Tuesday, October 27, 2015. In 2011 Michael Dougherty, writing for The American Conservative, called Church "the most radical man on the radio".
Church also created original conservative-themed parody songs, which include "Manuel Went Down To Georgia," "There's Democrats Somewhere" and "Obama," a take on the Toto song, "Rosanna", and "Mr. Jefferson", a rendition of the Simon & Garfunkel song, "Mrs. Robinson".
His show was aired on SIRIUS XM Patriot, SIRIUS and XM channel 125 Monday through Friday from 6:00 am – 9:00 am Eastern time. Shows were generally aired live, with an occasional rebroadcast of a previous show. The show was also later rebroadcast on SIRIUS XM Patriot Plus, SIRIUS 816 and XM 138 (online only) from 12 midnight to 3 am Eastern time. His show was broadcast live from self supported studios in Mandeville, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans.
The Mike Church Band was a part of the show which providing conservative themed parody songs as comedic elements to the political/historical/topical discussions, most of which were aimed at the political left. Headed up by Mike Church, the band has released a albums including UnAmerican Idiots (2005), Libs on the Run (2007), and The White Album (2008).
Church is also the author, producer, and voice talent behind three documentaries:
Road to Independence – the story of the Declaration of Independence
The Fame of Our Fathers: How Immortality Inspired Our Constitution
Spirit of '76 – writing and ratifying the U.S. Constitution.
Taken from source material, including personal letters, notes and transcripts of debates, the three documentaries portraying the Founding Fathers in their own words. The first two projects were originally audio only documentaries, while Spirit of '76 is animated. Church has adapted the Road to Independence into an animated feature, also.
