CHRY Radio Inc. will strive beyond their Guinness Book of World Record attempt of last year where they established a mark of 24 straight hours of live DJ mix sets by 24 of Toronto's foremost DJ's.  From noon Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 to 1PM Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 CHRY 105.5FM has invited 25 of Toronto's most talented mix, radio and club DJ's to deliver a continous 25 hour multi genre music mix in front of live audiences from remote locations throughout the York University - Student Centre.

The 24 + 1 hour media (and music) event will mark the 2nd Annual event of its kind and a unique broadcast experience never attempted on Toronto radio airwaves until CHRY 105.5 FM established it in 2011.  It will also launch the campus/community radio stations 2012 fundraising drive celebrating 25 years on the FM dial' which very fittingly connects to the successful attempt at 25 hours of talented mix DJ's on the FM dial.
