Petey Greene was an ex-convict whose hit radio show made him a vital figure in Washington DC's black community during the turbulent 1960s. Don Cheadle, who stars as Greene, has the tough task of playing a man who was funny, outrageous, ground-breaking and could make listeners in their thousands ready to rise up in anger or step back from the brink of rioting.
