A Philly Music history lesson you’ll want to listen to by The Geator, Jerry Blavat
Jerry Blavat, The Geator With The Heator, is one of Philly’s greatest music legends. So when you’re talking the Philly music scene from the earliest days of American Bandstand, when The Geator was a dancer on the show, the go-to guy, hands down, is The Boss With The Hot Sauce. Every Saturday night at 6 p.m., Jerry DJ’s The Geator’s Rock and Roll Rhythm and Blues Express on WXPN, and XPN’s Bob Bumbera got him on the phone to drop some awesome history for Philly Music Day, #tbtXPN.
One of greatest “Geatorisms” is his advice to “keep on rockin’ cause you only rock once.” At 76 years strong, The Geator is the hardest working man in showbiz. Between working his club, Memories in Margate, to keeping the fans happy at dances in Wildwood, the dances and shows at the Kimmel Center, the Geator’s schedule is non-stop, all while he’s DJ-ing on XPN and various other stations.
The Geator’s knowledge of Philly music is second to none, which is why we asked him to talk with XPN’s Bob Bumbera for Philly Music Day. Listen below.
