Dr. Turk Logan's, Broadcast
Dr. John C. "Turk" Logan, Jr. is a Forty five year veteran of Radio/TV Broadcasting. A recent Inductee into the Broadcasters Hall of Fame in Dayton, Ohio (9/09), Dr. Logan is retired as General Manager of WCSU-FM ("Your Urban/Jazz Connection"12/31/09) Central State Ohio. I am very proud to have created a successful format, Urban/Jazz 1986 c, and managed a great radio station for 24 years. In his autobiography The Reality of A Fantasy, he spins a tale of a young man in love with broadcasting, whose early life seemed more than full of challenges. Losing his father at an early age, young “Turk” had to find it in himself to overcome those obstacles that race and education would put in his way. Still, he overcame. In the early 1970's, “Turk” found himself in a sales position with Dayton’s pre-eminent Black radio station, WDAO-FM, "THE SOUL OF DAYTON". Though sales was not his dream, he worked hard and persevered. His hard work was recognized when he was given a chance at an on-air shift. His rise was meteoric: from disk jockey to music director to program director in only a few years. The clear pinnacle of his success was his guidance of a series of music groups to National success. Such groups as “Johnnie Wilder Jr. and Heatwave," “Dayton,” “The Ohio Players,” “Lakeside,” “Platypus,” "Faze O," "Slave," "Zapp," with Roger, "Sun" and many others had their first exposure on WDAO-FM, "THE SOUL OF DAYTON". The wall of gold records awarded “Turk” Logan over the years pays tribute to his uncanny ability to hear a million seller long before others.
