|DJ Dominik Schollmayer|
DJ Dominik Schollmayer, from Hit Radio Antenne in Hannover, Germany, presenting his show for a consecutive 169 hours, beating the previous record - held by an Indian DJ - by one hour.
Under the rules the 26-year-old was allowed to play two consecutive records of up to six minutes but had to return to the airwaves immediately after the second song.
He was allowed a five-minute break ever hour but he often saved up the time so as to give himself a 15-minute break every three hours.
His attempt was also monitored by doctors as sleep deprivation caused bizarre effects, according to a blog on the station's website.
One entry on the blog, entitled: "Now he's gone completely mad" reported that the DJ was 'dancing wildly' around the studio few hours before he made the record-breaking broadcast.
