Pulse back on-air after three week gap

Community radio station Pulse 98.4 is back live on air from today after a three-week shutdown to move studios.

Pulse is now headquartered on the St Luke’s High School campus in Barrhead, Renfrewshire, not far from its previous home at Barrhead High School.

The station had faced an uncertain future after East Renfrewshire Council announced redevelopment plans for Barrhead High, which included the demolition of the former janitor’s house, which was home to Pulse 98.4. But the council stepped in and helped set up the move to St Luke’s, about a mile away.

Raymond Weir, Pulse 98.4 Chairman, said: “Our station started out as a vehicle to showcase local talent, particularly some of the young talent that exists throughout East Renfrewshire.

“The fact that our new home is once again inside a secondary school is hugely significant for us and we look forward to establishing a great working partnership with St Luke’s.

“But wherever we are located, we will always look to promote local talent, local news and local issues. Pulse 98.4 is the beating heart of the community.”

Business Development Manager Neil Wilson added: “With our move to our new home complete we are very much looking to strengthen the station over the rest of 2015. That includes continuing to work with our existing team and to hopefully welcome new faces in as well.

“There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved, so we’d encourage anyone with an interest to get in touch. We’re also aiming to work closely with local groups and organisations to help promote local events and news – all of which will let us better serve the listeners of East Renfrewshire and beyond.”

Live broadcasting restarted at 6.30am when Gus Michael presented his breakfast show.

He said: “We would like to thank all our listeners who are very loyal and supportive of the station. We couldn’t do it without them.”
