Hall of Fame Essay


Jerry “The Geator” Blavat

Let me take you back to a different time, a time when we were all kids listening to music different from our par­ents’. It was harmony, it was soul, it was rhythm & blues. When I was a kid in South Philadelphia, even before realizing  that one day I would become the Geator, that sound haunted me.
