Hal Uchida, a deejay, ad-agency vet and freelance Hollywood photographer, died July 15 following a massive stroke. He was 67.
Uchida’s career in entertainment included a stint as a deejay at an Atlantic City radio station, where he co-hosted “Innovations,” interviewing stars such as Joan Crawford and Stan Kenton.
In 1969 he became radio-TV manager for the Harry W. Graff Madison Avenue ad agency. He moved his career to Hollywood 10 years later.
Uchida is survived by his wife, Ellen.
