52-Hour Radio Marathon Breaks Record

It's nice to know that in 2011, radio is still the preferred medium for good old-fashioned stunts, such as the 52-hour marathon broadcast made late last week in the UK on BBC Radio 1.

According to a story on the BBC website, Chris Moyles and Dave Vitty broke the previous Guinness record of 51.5 hours (for a DJ team) and raised 2.4 million pounds for the charitable organization Comic Relief.

The record for the longest radio broadcast of any kind is apparently held by Italian DJ Stefano Venneri who stayed on the air for more than 100 hours a few years back.
