NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Longtime New York radio disc jockey “Dandy” Dan Daniel has died.

Daniel, the self-described “world’s most adequate swinging disc jockey,” spent decades on New York radio stations beginning with WCMA in 1961. His smooth voice was loved by many, 1010 WINS reported.

Over the years, Daniel made the rounds on several local stations, including WHN, WYNY, and most recently WCBS-FM.

He was known for mixing songs and segues with the smoothest banter on the radio.

Daniel’s oldest son, Chris Daniel, put out a message saying his father died “suddenly” Tuesday morning. The cause of Daniel’s death was not indicated.
