The breakfast host, who in 2009 climbed Mt Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief, began broadcasting this morning with his team at 6.30am with the goal to beat the Radio 1 in-house record of a 37 hour broadcast as well as trying to set a new record for ‘Radio DJ Endurance Marathon (Team)’ Digital Spy writes.
Radio 1’s previous in-house record was set in 1999 by Simon Mayo and will need to sail past 50 hours if they're to beat the world record.
Moyles and co-host Comedy Dave will then join in on all of the scheduled presenter’s shows throughout the day (or week…or month) and are allowed five minutes off air per hour which, if needed, they can save up and ‘bank’ for a longer snooze.
Moyles said: ‘By the time we’ve done 37 hours, we may as well go for broke and hit 51.5 hours and set a new world record. That means that we can hopefully raise even more cash for Red Nose Day. Although I do think we might be completely mental.’
Comedy Dave added: ‘I’m apprehensive, nervous and confident that it's a wholly stupid idea.’
Good luck boys!
