    I listened to Jerry Blavat in the early 80's (Memories From Margate). He always talked through entire songs. It was a bit annoying.

    Me too Johnny Raven. I listen to him in the mid 80s when I lived in Philly and worked in South Jersey. He was buddies with Little Nicky Scarfo back then.

    My mother knew him back in the late 50's/early 60's. She made some funny comments about him (none that I can remember now).

    Where is So. Jersey did you work? I grew up in Ventnor.

    In Cherry Hill and in Marlton. I've been to Ventnor. My company at that time also had plants in Barrington and Berlin, NJ.

    I know what you mean. I use to have that problem trying to watch Dark Shadows reruns on station out of Vineland NJ when I was living out in Valley Forge area.

    ...and Niagra Falls on WIBG, Joe Niagra.Blavat loved to "rap" through the records as they played over the radio.and don't forget WDAS with Jimmy Bishop and Georgie Woods.I was lucky enough to attend several shows at the Uptown Theatre as well as Georgie wood's Freedom shows at convention hall.

    Oh yes. Wasn’t Bishop/Woods involved in Barbara Mason’s career?

    Thanks for reporting the YouTube video of the Chantels. Great performance although I would have liked to see them face to face vs. sideways, but at any rate, what is shown is better than nothing.

    Does anyone know if there are any YouTube videos of Kim Weston's performance at the show? What did she sing?
