PHUKET TOWN: A disc jockey plans to sing non-stop for 24 hours in a project that he hopes will set a new world record. He will keep on singing, even in the toilet, with a microphone that picks up his voice but no other sounds. He will eat and sing at the same time, too. The singing DJ is Issarakul “DJ. Dedduang” Thamangraksat, 28, who has just joined FM 88 radio and plans his record-breaking bid on September 22 at Royal Phuket City Hotel. The Ripley’s Believe it Or Not? record bid by DJ Dedduang will be supported by the Royal Music Association of Thailand, Phuket Cooperation Office, the Phuket District Municipality, Voice of The Royal Thai Navy Section 3 radio station and Rajabhat Institute Phuket. K. Dedduang said that under the rules, there were to be no breaks, no looking at lyrics (except the song titles), and no repetition of songs. Ripley’s will have an ambulance and first aid team on standby. The playlist includes English songs for seven hours, Thai pop songs for seven hours, Thai standards for four hours, Thai country music for three hours, Thai folk songs for an hour, Christian songs for an hour and his own songs for an hour. He will play up to 400 songs and support staff will be rotated in shifts. “I intend to start with the Thai anthem and end with it,” he said.
