The Guinness world record for the longest music show by a radio team (Longest marathon radio DJ team) was 52 hours, set by DJ Chris Moyles and sidekick 'Comedy' Dave Vitty.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most radio DJs presenting one radio show simultaneously is 45 and was achieved by Isitgoonair in a show broadcast live on the web radio at ISIT School, Gorizia, Italy.
Unemployed former pub manager Simon, aged 43, and 44-year-old painter and decorator Mark had many messages of support on the internet from hundreds of people from all over the world, including Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp, and former Radio One star Tony Blackburn.
The record bid was to raise money for the Higher Rhythm Foundation charity, which is helping victims of the 2009 typhoon which caused major devastation in the Phillipines, and for the Doncaster Rape and Sexual Assault Counselling Service.
The broadcast has already raised at least £2,400 with more coming in.
Before heading off to bed, an exhausted Simon said:
"We've had great support - 47 businesses came forward to sponsor the show. We had people coming down to be witnesses for us at 4am. But I've no idea how long I'm gong to sleep for now. "Mark looked pretty shell shocked by the time he'd finished, too."
