The story of Washington D.C. radio personality Ralph "Petey" Greene, an ex-con who became a popular talk show host and community activist in the 1960s.
In the scene during Petey Greene's first day on WOL he mentions that his father was serving a 21 year sentence on Alcatraz Island Federal Prison. This couldn't be true because the year in that scene was 1966. Alcatraz closed down in March 1963.
Wake up, goddammit!
During his broadcast on April 4, 1968, Petye refers to James Brown as "The Godfather of Soul", a term not given to him until the early 1970s.
