I just remembered the man a while back and decided to find out what happened to him.

Apparently there was an event where MTV had him do a live show in Germany, and Die Toten Hosen were advertised as a perfomer. It turned out the gig was broadcast via video from somewhere else and people got mad, throwing stuff at Cokes and acting out.

Seems like he got blamed for the whole thing and he disappeared from MTV. It seems he's still doing stuff though and there are some recent interviews with him on Youtube.

It's been a while, but I remember watching MTV's Most Wanted every night when I was home. Such a likable guy and had a funny reaction to every situation, even when things at 90s MTV UK weren't always handled so professionally.

Ray Cokes and MTV's Most Wanted, I clearly remember the episode where he said he loved Command & Conquer.
Too bad MTV has become a load of "reality" crap...

My first post here, and it's some good old MTV's Most Wanted trivia:

The cameraman's nickname was Ben (usually named as Ben Dover)
The director was Will MacDonald, and the default prize was an MTV's Most Wanted Goody Bag
