Ray hosted the last instalment of his long-era programme, All The Way With Ray, on Saturday night.
“Well, that’s it. Thank you very much for tuning in, goodbye, thank you for coming,” Ray Cordeiro said in both English and Cantonese before signing off ahead of the 1 am news.
Ray is known for his baritone voice, flat cap and easy listening playlist. His programme has been running on Hong Kong's RTHK public broadcaster since 1970.
In 2000, the Guinness Book of World Records awarded him the title of the world's most durable DJ.
"To do what I want to do, to love what I want to love, and I don't think I have any regrets," he told news agency.
During his illustrious 72-year career, he got to know some of the biggest names in the music world, including the Beatles, Cliff Richard and Tony Bennett.
It was the coda to a radio career that began 72 years ago and a more than 50-year run for his show “All the Way with Ray,” which started on public broadcaster RTHK in 1970.
Along the way, he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Tony Bennett, the Beatles and Cliff Richard and nurtured rising Hong Kong pop stars such as Sam Hui.
Affectionately called “Uncle Ray,” Cordeiro is known for his deep, calm voice, trademark flat cap, and easy listening repertoire.
For his last show, he spun a variety of tunes from the Carpenters, Perry Como and Louis Armstrong, among others. He was born in Hong Kong of Portuguese descent.
New island emerges near Balochistan’s Kund Malir beach
A new island have popped up near Sonmiani beach of Balochistan— discovered by the fishermen sailing along the coast on Thursday.
The technical advisor on marine fisheries at World Wild Fund (WWF), Muhammad Moazzam Khan said that the new island appeared in west off the coast of Sonmiani near Kund Malir.
“Such phenomena occurs due to geographical changes within the ocean depths,” he said adding that these kind of small islands emerge, remain in place for a while and then diminish back into the waters.
It is pertinent mention here that such Islands had earlier emerged at the same location in 2000 and 2010.
The first known emergence, during November 1945, was concurrent with an earthquake of magnitude 8.0.
The 2nd and 3rd emergences were in March 1999 and November 2010 respectively.
In 2013, an island emerged off Gwadar coast after a powerful 7.7 magnitude earthquake struck Pakistan. However, the island disappeared after some time.
Landsat images of March 1999 and November 2010 emergences indicate appearance of round-shaped island of 4.4 and 5.2 hectare area, followed by erosion and disappearance. The island was composed of mud breccias and circular vents spewing mud slurry and methane gas.
