The Power of Radio

Since I switch careers from Architecture to Radio. I see the power of broadcast media. How one song you play can affect someone or a certain words can move or offend. It is quite an amazing medium. That is why I really want to see the movie 'Talk to Me'.

Academy Award nominee Don Cheadle portrays the one and only Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene Jr.; Petey's story is funny, dramatic, inspiring -- and real. In the mid-to-late 1960s, in Washington, D.C., vibrant 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."
