During the weekend of Friday, 19 September 2014 to Sunday, 21 September 2014, myself and Kaz will be depriving ourselves and others of sleep by performing a live DJ broadcasting marathon on topTunesFM.
The event will start with The 2014 DJ marathon Launch Party at 12 PM UK time on Friday, 19 September, and will conclude with a special edition of The School Playground starting at 9 PM UK time on Sunday, 21 September.
The 2012 DJ Marathon was 42 hours long with a couple of breaks to get a few hours sleep. You can hear the whole of the 2012 DJ Marathon by clicking here. The 2013 DJ marathon was 48 hours long and was non-stop. both were presented by me, largey solo.
The 2014 DJ Marathon will be 60 hours long and done in relay with Kaz, each of us taking 6 hour shifts.
Well, where should I start? ...
I'd like to thank all the staff and management at MintFM for hosting the previous 2 DJ Marathons. It would've been a much more idfficult event to organize had they not allowed me to use their resources. You guys are totally awsome!
This year, TopTunesFM have picked up the ball for hosting the DJ Marathon on their servers and doing a lot of work in the background in terms of promoting and getting others involved, so thanks guys, your help is really appreciated.
But aside from a change of hosted station, the DJ marathon is pretty much unchanged in that it's all about raising money, bringing people together for a weekend's celebration, sleep deprivation and fun!
My goal is to raise in excess of £10,000 over the next 2 years via my Just Giving page, with all money raised going to Macmillan Cancer Support. As you can see, we're over half way there already and well on track!
