Georgie Woods, like Hy Lit, was a Philly radio legend. He worked for
black radio station WDAS. He may have been born around 1922.  He's

Hi bluestreak,

As always, thanks for the question :)

Georgie Woods was born on May 11, 1927. 

"The Guy with the Goods Turns 66," by Joe Logan. Philadelphia
Inquirer, May 11, 1993, p. E01.

On May 11, 1993, Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell declared it Georgie
Woods Day in honor of Woods' long radio career and civil rights
activism. A Philadelphia Tribune article details these events and
mentions that May 11 was also Woods' birthday.

"Georgie Woods Celebrated," by Tonya Pendleton. The Philadelphia
Tribune, May 14, 1993, p. 1A.
