DJ Sets New Record for Consecutive Hours On-Air
Steve Kicklighter, a DJ for Boise, Idaho station Kiss FM who also goes by the name KeKe Luv, has been on-the-air since Thursday of last week, breaking the old record of 175 consecutive hours on the radio. Kicklighter is still broadcasting as you can see via live video feed, assuming he's still up by the time you read this. His goal: to increase awareness of child abuse.
A doctor consulted by the disc jockey before he embarked on this marathon radio session said "things would start to get rough by the second or third day," according to a local television station. The station later reported that as the days progressed, Kicklighter had trouble communicating. "I'm stillhaving some problems with my speech. My [co-worker] can't understandanything I'm saying, and I don't understand why he can't understand me," he said.
