Jerry Blavat, known to millions as "The Geator with the Heater" and "The Boss with the Hot Sauce", is the man many credit with having invented the oldies craze. A broadcasting pioneer, Blavat was the first disc jockey in the early '60s to play music from the '50s. He took risks, introducing audiences to songs no one else played, which became local and national hits all over again.
Every Saturday you can take a one hour ride into the musical encyclopedic mind of legendary disc jockey, and Philadelphia icon Jerry Blavat. The Geator will play the roots of rock and roll and R&B with a local slant that has made Philly one of the great music cities of the world but also the music that inspired generations.
