Join us for a special screening of Brother Sam Tate: A Life On Air. Sam Tate has been a radio DJ for almost 60 years. He began his career at WEAL in Greensboro, NC while a student at North Carolina A&T University. In 1983 he built Blowing Rock's first radio station, WOIX above Mystery Hill. Now he produces Gospel Gems, the only internationally syndicated Oldie Goldie Black Gospel radio show. Sam has had an extraordinary life, from riding on James Brown's leer jet to building a radio station in Belize. This film chronicles some of his experiences. Following the screening Sam and film director, Willard Watson will field audience questions and discuss the effort that went into producing the film. A Life on Air: Brother Samuel Tate is a finalist of the 2022 BooneDocs Film Festival. This event will also serve as an opening reception for the exhibition, A Life on Air: Brother Samuel Tate, which will be in the Alexander Community Gallery for the month of June.
