The week of 1st to 5th October was so busy! Not only did we organise our own challenge, #challengebedford, and were in our peak of Christmas staffing, we had the added responsibility of running and maintaining the rota for the world record attempt for the longest running live radio show!
Both DJ Stevo and DJ Dannii from in2beats 106.5fm went live on air at 8am on Monday 1st and didn’t end their show until 8pm on Friday 5th October. The work behind the scenes from all parties was immense! The shifts for witnesses were in 4-hour blocks over 24 hour shift patterns, with no staff from in2beats being allowed to witness and no witness being allowed to do more than 4 hours in each 24 hour period. And there had to be 2 witnesses present at all times! It was a very complex and challenging rota but with the dedication of the internal staff at Watton Recruitment, including our very own MD Philomena Watton even doing the midnight to 4am shift before heading to work, the rota ran smoothly, and the Bedford community was amazing.
Thank you so much to everyone involved and fingers crossed the word record team sign it off after reviewing the hours of footage that have been submitted.
