Jerry Blavat the GEATOR WITH THE HEATER…
When I first entered the press room at the Roosevelt Hotel for the press conference, I was given a press kit and directed to set up at a table off to the side. I was escorted over to the table and the person who escorted me asked the person sitting there if I could sit at one of the empty chairs at the table. There was a short/skinny fellow sitting at the table who was adjusting his tape recorder, his head was down and he replied, ‘sure why not’
I put down my bag and started getting my own tape recorder ready and he says to me…
He smiled and said…
After I got my tape recorder set up, I interviewed Jerry Blavat, the LEGENDARY Philadelphia DJ who may very well be the person who INVENTED the concept of ‘oldies radio’, back in 1962, when he started playing some of his old 1950’s R&B records on the air!
After I got a wonderful interview on tape (which you can hear on Soul-Patrol.Net Radio), Jerry Blavat had to leave.
Jerry has also done a lot of other noteworthy things.
We talked for about 15 min.
I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
