Best of the Fest: Alley Pat: The Music Is Recorded

  • The Plaza Theatre

In celebration of Alley Pat's 2013 Georgia Radio Hall of Fame Award, 2010 ATLFF Audience Awad Winner "Alley Pat: The Music Is Recorded" will have a rare screening at The Plaza Theater, 1049 Ponce De Leon Ave on Monday October 14 at 7:30PM. The documentary celebrates the outrageous era of classic Rhythm & Blues radio with the trailblazer who helped start it all, James 'Alley Pat' Patrick. This laugh-out-loud film is full of infectious music, vintage graphics, and a trove of barrier-breaking ''airchecks.'' Pat is the last surviving DJ from the first black-owned radio station in the USA, Atlanta’s WERD-AM, which signed on in 1949.

Alley Pat and director Tom Roche are Scheduled to be In Attendance
