Jay-Ohs! - Hoodat Singer

I've been sharing retro Blue Jays songs on this blog for over a decade. I loved those old cheesy Jays songs from the late 80s and early 90s.

Hoodat Singer, who I believe to be Geets Romo from the old Pete and Geets radio show Dave Platel, Associate Manager of Celine Dion, has appeared before on these old compilations. Here he is singing Rhythm & Blue Jays, my least favourite of the old retro Jays tunes.

This one isn't a whole lot better, but we're down to the nitty gritty now. With apologies to Harry Belafonte, here's Hoodat Singer with Jays-Ohs!, released in '91.

I believe Hoodat Singer was a guy called Dave Patel who was an exec at Sony Music..

I've done more digging. It's definitely either Dave Platel or Geets Romo.

It's not Geets. The only people who sang at CFNY were Freddie P., Himble, Hal Harbour, old Promo guy Darren Wasylyk and me.

Loved those songs. I used to have the tape (yes I am that old) but have worn it out. Would love to get my hands on a copy again. Oh yeah, what about Rocking Robbie and We fought them all and the Jays won.
