For this year's BBC Children in Need appeal, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire is attempting to break the world record for the Radio DJ Marathon.

 

The record currently stands at 120 hours, and the station is going to try and beat the total by an hour.

 

Presenter Max Rushden begins his record attempt this Sunday (14 November) from 3.00pm at the Grafton Shopping Centre in the heart of Cambridge.

 

Max is going to broadcast on 1026AM while normal programming remains on 95.7FM and 96FM.

 

Max will broadcast for 121 hours - without sleep - finishing at 4.00pm on Friday 19 November (BBC Children in Need Day).

 

Rory MacDonald, Producer, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, says: "We want to make this into the most talked about BBC Children in Need event ever!

 

"We want people to come and see Max to give him some support, and at the same time donate money for the charity."

 

The current world record for the Radio DJ Marathon is Arulanantham Suresh Joachim's broadcast on Geethavaani Tamil Radio in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada which lasted for 120 hours.

 

He began his marathon attempt at 4.00pm on 23 June 2003 and finally closed his programme five days later at 4.00pm on 28 June.
