Online station breaks talk show record
An online radio station has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest marathon radio talk show by a team.
The team at RadioMade.ie started talking on Friday at 9am and continued till Sunday night – 63 hours in total, raising just over €3,400 for Movember.
The previous record was 57 hours, held by a group of American DJs in a Christian station in the US.
Speaking to TheJournal.ie, presenter Dan Murphy said they were delighted with their achievement: “We finished up around midnight, after 63 hours on air, so we’ve beaten the previous record holders, a Christian station, who had prayers to keep them going.
“We had good conversation and bit of craic. We had a topic per hour, so the guys prioritised what they wanted to talk about. We narrowed it down to about 60 topics. We talked about everything from religion to music to politics – a little bit of everything. Some things ran out of steam though.”
