Leo Nelson was born in the USA, (perhaps he was the inspiration behind the iconic song?) but says he has lived in Perth for “forever”. Leo has been working in radio since he left high school, a career he knew he always wanted.
Leo is a real family man and a die-hard Dockers supporter, however, his true love might just be music. If his family and friends were asked to describe him they would say Leo is “passionate about music”, around the 6iX office we consider Leo a music encyclopaedia.
Leo Nelson doesn’t like being asked what his favourite songs are as he likens it to being asked to name your favourite child, but when we pressured him for an answer he said Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers, God Only Knows by the Beach Boys and Original Sin by INXS.
For Leo, 6iX means great music across the decades and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you tune into Leo weekdays from 2pm for your drive home (unless he has run-off to join Bruce Springsteen on tour) to 7pm.
