Ray Cordeiro, whose storied career as a DJ spanned seven decades, has passed away at the age of 98, Variety reports.
Cordeiro died over the weekend at Hong Kong's CUHK Medical Centre, with family by his side. He was reportedly sent off with grace to the sound of "You’ll Never Walk Alone."
Cordeiro wasn't immediately aware of his calling as a DJ and radio personality. But during his studies in London, the opportunity of a lifetime arose when he was presented with the opportunity to interview The Beatles. Cordeiro didn't even have time to prep—nor did he arrive with his own recorder—but the event of that day awakened something in him that would shift his life's path forever.
