Radio gaga: German DJ breaks world endurance record



BERLIN, April 6, 2009 (AFP) - A German DJ broke the world record for the longest continuous radio show Monday when he finished his "morning" programme over a week after beginning it, his station said.
By presenting his show for a consecutive 169 hours, 26-year-old Dominik Schollmayer from Hit Radio Antenne in Hanover, central Germany, beat the previous record -- held by an Indian DJ -- by one hour.

The rules stated he was allowed to play two consecutive records of up to six minutes but had to broadcast something after that.
He was allowed a five-minute break ever hour but saved these up to give himself a 15-minute break every three hours.
Schollmayer was monitored by doctors around the clock throughout his record-breaking broadcast.
Sleep deprivation caused bizarre effects, according to a blog on the station's website.
One entry, entitled: "Now he's gone completely mad" reported that the DJ was dancing wildly around the studio as the final hours approached.
