Summer Season 2021 Look-Back.

Time flies at the Jersey shore. 50 years of Jerry Blavat and Memories in Margate.

The place to be on Amherst Ave along the bay since 1972.

Let’s take a look at the amazing life of the Big Boss with the hot sauce, the Geator with the heater.


In 1953, Blavat debuted on the original Bandstand on WFIL-TV with Bob Horn.

The Geator got his start in radio in 1960.

From 1965 to 1967, Blavat produced and hosted a weekly television show in Philadelphia called The Discophonic Scene, a dance show.

In 1998, included in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of exhibit in Museum of Radio and Records.

In 2002, inducted into Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia‘s “Hall of Fame”.
