Yusuf Noordeen is the Director of the English Services of the oldest radio station in Asia, the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation in Independence Avenue. Vernon Corea’s daughter Ouida Corea Wickramaratne and her family recently met with Yusuf Noordeen on a visit to SLBC in July 2013. It was a very nostalgic trip for Ouida who is the daughter of Vernon Corea – she said memories flooded back of her childhood in Sri Lanka and her frequent visits to Radio Ceylon, now the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation in the 1960s and 1970s.
