Leo’s Casino, was a premier nightclub in Cleveland for Motown artists and Rhythm &Blues performers, including Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Jackie Wilson, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick, the Supremes, the Temptations and many others.
Our station is in honor of this renowned venue known for its racial diversity during the tumultuous 1960s riot in Cleveland Ohio’s Hough community.
Leo’s Casino Radio was created to allow youths to learn the historical facts surrounding the events of the 60’s in the Hough community and Greater Cleveland as well as listen to interviews from individuals who experienced that time in Cleveland history and how music shaped their lives. Youths will also appreciate the music that mapped the way to the music they enjoy today. They can learn the music history, the songs writers and performers and tie the information directly to their favorite musical artist who are sampling these songs today.
For older ones that attended a concert at Leo’s Casino or who heard about the events there or simply enjoy the Motown sound, blues, jazz and R&B of the 60s, 70s and 80s, they can appreciate and enjoy the 24 hour/7 day station on their laptop at leoscasinoradio.com.
