Watch Independent Lens “Adjust Your Color: The Truth of Petey Greene” at 9:00 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18 on Wisconsin Public Television.
Petey Greene and Independent Lens… All I can imagine is the movie Private Parts based on the life of Howard Stern, but with higher production value. After all, Howard did make appearances on the show and when each of them was finally given a break they became icons of their time and changed the standards for radio and TV. It’s amazing to see one of the people behind it all. Not only was he a community activist and advocate for much needed change, but he opened the door for future generations of entertainers. From the streets to the military, from drugs to prison and finally to TV, Petey shed light on the topics everyone ignored and said the things others were too afraid to. Sufficiently intrigued? I found a little sample and added it below just in case you were still contemplating how to spend your Friday night.
