Leon is a native of Montgomery, Alabama and a proud graduate of the historic Booker T. Washington High School. Although surrounded by family members in radio and entertainment, Leon chose sports… playing football and basketball in high school and college. Recognizing the need for change in our society, he joined the United States Marine Corps, which turned out to be one of the most important decisions of his life.
The military experience which he gained in the U.S.M.C. served him well later in life when he was afforded the privilege of working with disabled veterans. A very vital part of the therapy for the veterans that Leon cared for was the infusion of music into their daily regimen, and it was this realization that persuaded him to understand that music is not merely the “universal language”, it is nectar for the soul. The passion for serving as caregiver and counselor for veterans influenced him to exercise his special gift in a broader way, so he accepted an invitation to join the TLBN family to share the therapy worldwide.
True to form, Leon swiftly carved out his own niche in the entertainment industry by creating a Friday night habit called Heavy and the Fat Cats, an irreverent mix of R&B, Gospel, Blues and News, which airs from 7 until 1Opm central time. Heavy’s guests range from athletes to entrepreneurs to recording artists to authors, politicians, and community activists And his sports acumen is not lost as he regularly co-hosts The Sports Bar with Rennie Jones a weekly feature on TLBN’s Tan Town Coffee Club.
HEAVY MAKES YOU HAPPY …… FRIDAYS ON TLBN!
ABOUT William “Mouse” Boswell
William “MOUSE” Boswell, from Montgomery AL., I am a graduate of Sidney Lanier H. S. and I also attended Alabama State University. My junior year in high school, I founded WRMA. Since then, my life has never been the same.
My time there prepared me greatly for the “next phase”. In 1975, I moved to Chicago, where I became the house DJ at the” 1623 Club” Evanston, for 7 years. I also became producer of “the Jim Heard Show” (WOJO). Sometime later, I moved to Atlanta, working at WYZE. I was fortunate to work with the legendary DJ, “Ally Pat”, it was Awesome.
I found my way back to Montgomery, AL., and it too was a blessing. I began working with a dear friend & classmate, Nathan Jones (Herman Bennett), and Bill Black, a gifted engineer and both men would teach me more than I can imagine and I will be forever grateful. For the past 20 years, the place for me has been The ELK’S Club. I have added a new adventure as member of the Tan Town Coffee Club Team with Hilton “Tracy” Larkin where I not only report on the hottest entertainment events in the city but I also host an afternoon program of the funkiest music in the Capital City directly after TTCC. Send me an e-mail and tell me what you like! firstname.lastname@example.org LATER!
