Wave 105 does underwater radio show

Wave 105 mid-morning presenter Simon Clarke is doing his show from the bottom of a swimming pool today as part of an attempt to break a world record for the longest underwater live radio broadcast.

The Bauer station on the south coast of England is doing it to raise money for the Cash 4 Kids charity and you can follow the show via a live video stream on the Wave 105 website until 4pm.

Simon only learnt to swim in May this year, so it’s been a bit of a personal challenge for him too. “I still can’t quite believe I’m doing this,” he said. I have really enjoyed conquering my fear of water and can’t wait to tackle this next challenge and it would be wonderful to be able to seal my achievement by setting an official Guinness World Record along the way”.

Andy Goddard from the Andark Diving and Watersports Centre where the broadcast is taking place from says: “The underwater studio has been especially designed for a challenge like this in mind. It was designed more than a year ago and testing has been an on-going process. I was very impressed with Simon’s ability to overcome his fear of water and learn to swim and to be able to do our Helicopter Evacuation Underwater Trainer and that’s why it seemed the perfect opportunity to go for a new world record for the longest broadcast from an underwater studio!”
