KUSF 12.09.08 In the Soul Kitchen DJ Harry D

The Geator With The Heater-Jerry Blavat
This is Part 2 of a Tribute to the Musical Genius of Jerry Blavat, legendary Philadelphia
dj, performer and tireless, soul rebel spirit whose innovations turned the sound of radio
in Philadelphia upside down beginning in the 60's.

Philly DJ Jerry Blavat/The Geator With The Heater is a broadcasting legend and solid
sender of vintage r&b, pop and soul sounds whose deep love and respect for the music
are matched only by his wealth of knowledge and generosity of spirit.

The Geator is one of the most innovative and influential djs ever to get behind the mike
and On The Wheels of Steel in Philly. He is responsible for turning on several
generations of listeners and dancers to great black music over nearly five decades on
the radio both inside and outside the Greater Philadelphia/Jersey Shore area.

Plus The Geator still throws down every week at his high energy record hops, live
broadcasts from The Philly Park Casino, with the live stage shows he promotes with the
best soul, r&b and pop artists of the 50's-70's at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center and with
the ongoing series of Geator Gold cd reissues of this music that features both well
known and obscure artists and songs.
