Jerry Blavat

Jerry Blavat, the legendary Geator with the Heater, was one of the early rock-and-roll DJs who revolutionized theprofession and invented the “oldies" format. He had national success in the 1960s as host of the popular CBS-TV dance show The Discophonic Scene, but is best known as a high-energy oldies DJ on the air and at live events throughout the Middle Atlantic region and on PBS. With a successful nightclub outside Atlantic City (Memories in Margate); regular radio shows on WXPN 88.5 in Philadelphia, WVLT 92.1 in South Jersey, WBCB 1490 in Bucks Country and Trenton, and AtlanticCity's WTKU Kool 98.3 FM and WOND 1400 News Talk Radio, and scores of sold-out live dance events and concerts every year both in the tri-state area and all around the country, including his annual Philly/Jersey Shore reunion at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Blavat is more popular than ever and is celebrating his 59th year on radio. He was inducted into the Rock & RollHall of Fame in 1998, and his autobiography, You Only Rock Once: My Life in Music, was published by Running Press in July 2011 and has also been released in paperback and audiobook. He continues to live in Philadelphia, PA.
