Bring Back The King!

I started to become a fan of Radio ever since High School when a friend introduced me to Magic 89.9’s Boogie Nights, the first time King DJ Logan and Slick Rick voices made me set aside the things that I usually do on a weekday night. I neglected TV and sleeping early over the 9pm-12mn time slot of radio. The show presented no dull moment and I became a fan, at that moment up to the present.

I miss the partnership of the two and that particular show. For those who just appreciated Boy’s Night Out, Boogie Nights is pretty much the same with Magic 89.9’s BNO of today. Some of the styles and program format of BNO’s Sam YG, Tony Toni and Slick Rick reminds me of, what most radio fans proclaim, King of Philippine FM radio. The Confession Session (a.k.a. Radio Tabloid), the Apir style, and some other stuff came from Boogie Nights.

The King never ran out of airtime after his suspensions and controversial break-up with Magic 89.9. I later can hear the famous Brando Braganza once again on Max FM and later on 99.5 RT. An exception to the overly unfriendly rants of his about Magic 89.9 and other DJs, he again lived up to his name being King DJ Logan by being innovative in radio. One of course is one of my favorites: drinking inside the DJ booth with fans who frequently visit his show.

His team up with Tina Ryan didn’t click as what listeners expected of their show coming from their previous team up in 93.9 KC FM years ago. After a few months, his voice again became absent in the evening airwaves. Many from the Brewrats, BNO, Tina Ryan and fans confirmed that he is now focusing his dayjob career, a living that can provide more for his family.

Nowadays, KDL is being missed in the airwaves and fans are anxious to hear his voice once again on-air. I wish 99.5 RT can bring him back, this time bringing his 2 other DJ friends from Logan’s Alley replacing the Brewrats’ previous timeslot in the evening. WE JUST WANT THE KING BACK!
