Drystone Radio DJs out to break record for a live broadcast
11:00am Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
Two South Craven men will attempt to break a world record for the longest live radio broadcast to raise money for charity.
Jason, 20, and Mick, 46, who are presenters for the community radio station, have registered their attempt with the Guinness Book of World Records.
It will start at 9am on Friday.
“We’re going to film the whole event to show we’ve done it,” said Jason, who said both were allowed one five-minute break every hour.
“We can either have a five-minute catnap or build it up and sleep for one hour after 12 hours.”
Mick, an electrician, who served for three years in the Army’s Royal Armoured Corps, is looking forward to the challenge.
“Sleep deprivation is nil in my eyes as long as we’re raising money for a good cause,” he said. “The fact that I’m ex-forces means the determination to break this record is there.
“If we do it, we’ll be in the Guinness Book of World Records’ 2014 edition by Christmas.”
The current official record of 73 hours is held by German radio station Kiss FM.
