He was born in Hong Kong 95 years ago, and his name is not misleading: Reinaldo Maria Cordeiro is a descendant of Portuguese people from Macau. Better known as Ray Cordeiro or the affectionate name "Uncle Ray", he still animates the radio waves of Hong Kong every night. In 2000, Ray was awarded as the World's Most Durable DJ by the Guinness Book of Records. Twenty years later, he celebrates 70 years of studio and radio. Even today, you can hear him on Hong Kong public radio - RTHK - on the showJust Jazz with Uncle Ray.
