Miami's pure dance station played the same washed up trance vocals over and over and over... its no wonder it didnt do well. Theres awesome dance music out there.. theres hasnt been a station to showcase the music yet...
every pure dance channel is going to do that, the energy in sf, phoenix and this new pulse is going to do that, the format gets tired after a while
Pulse won't be playing simply washed up trance vocals. The station is dance oriented. Dance music covers a huge range of music. The format gets tired when programmed poorly. I have yet to hear a good dance station in the US. although C89.5 out of Seattle is probably the best in this country.
I think that with good personality and of course some music to appeal to the masses Pulse will have a good life span. There is buzz around this station and that's huge.
Dance music and stations work well in Europe but if you listen to them they spice it up a bit and that is what I hope Pulse 87 will do!
