The Black Pope was the air name of Shelley Pope, an influential radio station[clarification needed] at "Soul Music" radio stations around the southeastern United States in the 1970s and 1980s.

An excerpt from one of these shows can be heard in the 1982 movie "Cat People" playing on the radio in a taxicab.
