Big Boy was a "Heavy" disc-jockey. He revolutionized the radio airwaves in the late 60's in Brazil, broadcasting all the new pop stuff releasing it simultaneously with Europe and U.S.A.(which had never happened before in South America). He also created the "Baile da Pesada"(Heavy Ball) that was the seed of brazilian Funk.
He died at 33 but despite of that he became a spokesman of an entire generation of pop music fans. In the 70's he wrote about this music in major newspapers and magazines, he also had the "film clips" in Globo TV where he exposed all of his diggings and discoveries from the wolrd of music. Producing and presenting three shows at Radio Mundial he also found time to manage Radio Eldorado FM which was a Rock radio.
The Big Boy Show tells some of these stories. The focuses are his work at the radios and the balls he promoted, it's for those who want to recollect a memory of him as well it is to introduce this essential character to the young generations that never heard about this man that revolutionized some social behavior in Brazil.
