Chris Moyles – Broadcast Marathon!

I’m a regular listener of Radio 1’s Chris Moyles show and to raise money for Comic Relief the funtastic DJ took up the challenge of doing the longest Radio One broadcast – a 37 hour marathon!

As I write this the time is 9:43am on Thursday 17th March and Chris has been on the air for 27 hours and 13 minutes and has so far raised £485,000! WoW!

To donate £1 to this amazing charity you can text CHRIS to 71100.

You can help this charity in small ways such as buying a Red Nose from Sainsbury’s supermarkets. They look pretty cool this year too!

  1. We’ve also been able to watch chris moyles live on the tv aswell. Strangely addictive. As of 8:55 now the 18th they’ve raised 1.8 million pounds.

  2. Hey Tim! Welcome! Hehe, I’m watching it on my PC now. £1.8m! I’ve listened to Chris Moyles for years and watched the show via the red button, on the radio in the car and online. Sadly I fell asleep at 3 this morning for a few hours!

    I lost count of how many times I texted in to donate £1, well worth it for that amount of entertainment!

  3. Red Nose isn’t an annual event, I think it runs every 2-3 years. I suppose that gives the public time to build up interest for the next fundraiser.
