The area’s impressive number of Bandstand era heartthrobs get honored in a brand new mural at Broad and Tasker streets that’s being dedicated Saturday. The artwork, painted by Eric Okdeh, shows nine of our greats, like Frankie Avalon, Chubby Checker, Eddie Fisher and Jerry Blavat. An afternoon block party abuts the dedication with live food, DJ music and a performance by “The Geator With the Heater” himself.
