 In the mid-to-late 1960s in Washingtonvibrant soul music and exploding social consciousness were combining to unique and powerful effect.

It was the place and time for Petey to fully express himself - sometimes to outrageous effect - and "tell it like it is."

With the support of his irrepressible and tempestuous girlfriend Vernell, the newly minted ex-con talks his way into an on-air radio gig.

At the station, Petey becomes an iconic radio personality, surpassing even the established popularity of his fellow disc jockeys, Nighthawk and Sunny Jim.
