Almost 300 radio stations across the UK linked up to raise over Â£3m for tsunami survivors in Asia. All the stations got rid of the DJs and shows they normally put on and all broadcast the same 12-hours of programmes for UK Radio Aid instead. Even PM Tony Blair got involved, and was interviewed by DJ Chris Evans. DJs including Davina McCall and Dermot Oâ€™Leary and stars like Jamelia, Keane and Franz Ferdinand took part. As many as 26 m people tuned in during the day while stars auctioned off treasured possessions to raise cash.
