(SYDNEY) -- An Australian radio show host has set the Guinness World Record for the longest-ever one-on-one radio interview.
Guinness officials were on hand as Richard Glover began a chat with author and journalist Peter FitzSimons at 10 a.m. GMT Sunday Morning, and were there when the two men wrapped it up exactly a day later.
The interview on Sydney's Australian Broadcasting Corporation beat the previous record holding chat set back in 2009 by 12 hours and 30 seconds.
Glover and FitzSimmons -- who were allowed to take short refreshment breaks, but forbidden from repeating questions -- spoke about history and FitzSimmons' life.
