In 1999 John Raven(s)croft/Peel shared his BBC Radio 1 show with fellow DJ Simon Mayo who was going for a 37 hour DJing record.
John briefly mentions KMEN and Chuck Christensen's staying-awake record in part 1 of the show

Whenever I hear "Summer in the City" I'm brought back to those stifling hot and still summer nights cruising E Street in San Bernardino. The car windows are all open and the air seems almost too hot to breath. Traffic was slow but we had no particular place to go. Downtown San Bernardino was still reminiscent of those Petula Clark songs.
