Press release with all the details, nice to see that it involves all the presenters and good to see that it looks like lots of money is being spent on it. Very intrigued to see how they’ll do some of those things with Covid measures too! 

Looking at the press releases it dose seem there is an opportunity  for it to be longer than 24 hours. Since it dose start at 9am on the Thursday,  with a due to end on the Friday. 
I am going to hazard a guess that it will carry on till the start of the Chart on the Friday. 

I am also glad it seems that pretty much ever presenters is going to be involved, I am guessing there is going to  be a lot of zoom, so also a lot of zoom failures are going to happen I guess in the middle of the night.

I think it's a shame they do these things on a weekday night, if it was a Friday or Saturday night I'd stay up to listen to parts of it. Is it due to the higher profile specialist shows being on the weekend nights?

I am guessing a couple of reason here. 

One around the specialist shows at the weekend, as you say. 

also around that there are probably more listener during the week, and with more listeners more chance for donations.

Probably reached a point where it’s unattainable 

It is only 2.75 days. 
when the sole record is 88 hours, I think that record is very much breakable.

It is always good radio - I wonder if the 9am finish is a start point - we know that Katie is on the chart and we know Matt and Mollie are planning something for it, last time in 2019 it was due to be 24hrs and Greg was due to cover for Scott on the day after however they continued until 4 and made it 27, the same as 2017 when they started at 4 after their own show 

I reckon 9am is the minimum, and they will actually go to 4pm Friday making it 31

Most likely. Depends if they burnout with a whole week of buildup.
