Top 5 Reasons to Listen to PULSE 87.7

Pulse 87

If you like Techno, Freestyle and Trance and live in the New York City Area you probably want to check out Pulse 87.7 ( The lowest station on the FM Dial).

Joel Salkowitz, the station's PD and a alumni of WQHT during their early days told the online website All Access about Pulse 87's musical direction: "The station is a Top 40/Rhythmic, leaning away from Rock and Rap and more towards Club and Dance sounds in their place. Familiar, rhythmic hits mixed with the very best new music. This is a current/recurrent-based radio station."

Its transmitter is on top of the Citicorp Building in Long Island City, Queens, and Pulse 87.7 IDs allude to it as "that big blue building in Queens" [1].

Reasons to Listen:

1. New beats to old songs
2. Less commercials and contests/ more music
3. New Music/ Underground remixes
4. It is KTU minus the over played disco stuff and the good beats that die into a mediocre vocals
5. Who doesn't want to hear all 12 (exaggeration) remixes of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing"?

It is pretty popular in Queens among teens and people in their early twenties. I haven't talked to enough people who have actually heard about the station to listen. Another problem is that some radios do go that low to reach 87.7.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Yea I don't know if anyone would've told me about this station if I hadn't found it by accident when I had to reprogram my alarm clock. I was setting up the presets on my alarm clock when I heard some good music on a weird station. And then I heard that it's the new home of Star and Buc Wild! I was like wtf station is this?
Pretty good music, I must say.

I live in Jersey and I can never get it to come in clear in my car. The only time i got it to come in somewaht clear was on an OLDD 80's radio i had laying around.

Does anyone know why i wouldn't be able to get it in mine or anyone elses car?
