Cleveland Ethnic Radio
Radio seems old-fashioned to many but almost everyone has access to it (even via an Internet or cellphone app). Ethnic radio in Cleveland has a long tradition of serving various communities. The radio show often created or encouraged ethnic events. For example, Tony Petkovsek did his daily polka show starting in 1961 and continued for over 50 years. His show led to the 185th Street Festival and the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame.
