Storyline

Celebrates the daring and outrageous era of classic Rhythm & Blues radio with a rich profile of the man who helped start it all, Atlanta pioneer James 'Alley Pat' Patrick. Full of infectious music, vintage graphics, and a trove of loopy, rare and barrier-breaking ''airchecks'' by the last surviving DJ from the first black-owned radio station in the country. Pat sings and screams over classic 50s jazz and blues, while he imprudently improvises his way through hilarious live commercials. But beneath Pat's clowning is some deadly serious business: civil rights pioneers including Andrew Young reveal Alley Pat's quiet but pivotal role in their shared struggle. This new film revels in Pat's on-air anarchy during broadcasting's pre-corporate era, and brings his socially engaged spirit boldly to life. Alley Pat is the righteously real ''Mouth of the South.'
