    Chris Moyles and Comedy Dave Comic Relief Challenge

    I've not seen a thread about this over the last couple of days, I know hes not everybodys cup of tea but you have to say that 52 hours live on Radio and Raising over £2.4 million is pretty impressive!

    I'm thinking of maybe getting the Students that run the radio station here to try and beat it next year!!

    the world record is 172 hours i believe.. Not much of an achievement, and I hes a bit of a tw4t to be honest.

    But kudos for raising money for a good cause.

    I guess there is a big difference between "swimsuit" and "bikini" so I guess it's not the end of the world...

    it was just the fact it suddenly jumped up loads when that was offered!

    Also when comedy daves 4/5 year old daughter came in at 8:20 this morning and gave chris her £2 pocket money for "the children in africa that have no food or toys"

    it was quite sweet!!

    You're wrong. And to be fair, they've both done well. Regardless of whether you dislike him you can't argue with that.

    I think my second sentence is quite obvious that I am not arguing with the fact that it is good that money is being raised for charity.

    Mr BLobby raised a lot of money for charity one year too Im sure as well..

    As to my first point, I just went by the first hit on Google. A New Record: 175 Hours On Air

    Totally agree there, most don't realise the concentration that you need to present a show, not just the gift of the gab as such. Not once while I was watching did I see him sit down for start... he was always at the controls, and apart from a few technical issues (the Louis Walsh telephone interview comes to mind) last night he managed to pull off a good 'set.' Yes he had an army of producers and assistants, but at the end of it he and Comedy Dave were the ones who pulled it off.

    Kudos and Congratulations to them both.

    It was all for a good cause, I donated a pound, which isn't a massive amount when you consider how much he raised I know but I can stand proud in the knowledge that I have helped in my own little way.

    None of those have been Guinness Verified... so yes they may be the longest broadcast, but not within the strict criteria of the Guinness World Record people

    there was a very strict guidelines they had they both had to speak in every min of the show except when playing music and also during the news.

    Chris also made a personal rule of one of them had to be in the studio at all times.
