Glen Jones, a disc jockey with the freeform station WFMU in Jersey City, N.J., made it into the Guinness Book of Records at 1 p.m. Tuesday after staying on the air for 100 hours and 40 seconds straight, according to the station. Comparing himself to previous recordholder Greg Daines, Jones said he was the "heavyweight champion of the world" after his show went a minute longer than the British DJ. Jones, 39, was allowed to take a 15-minute break every eight hours, and the songs that he played had to last between two and six minutes. Jones took calls during the broadcast, including one from KISS' Gene Simmons. Jones is the host of a weekly show on WFMU and a radio producer for Court TV during the week.
