So I'm currently in the process of making Junction 106.9 (soon to be Pulse 106.9) a dance station. The station used to ran a Hot AC format (pop from the 2000's to now), but I got tired of it. Plus, the only dance stations I know of are KNHC-FM Seattle and KXRG-LP Honolulu, two stations I'll never get for more than 5 minutes during a Sporadic-E event.
Relaunching a station shouldn't be too hard, right? Well, apparently it is.
First, I had to find some new music. Didn't think it would be too hard. After all, I'm big into late 90's - 2000's trance and house music. Cue me a few days later, with some of the songs from the original playlist and some that I was able to find, and I only have 23 hours of music. Might sound like a lot, but when it's on repeat 24/7, it gets repetitive pretty fast.
Second, I had to come up with a new name. At first, I was going to name the station Core 106.9, as it was going to be "the essential party station". However, when it came time to fill out the Icecast information, I realized how stupid that sounded. After a couple minutes, I decided to go with Pulse 106.9. The slogan? "Feel the Pulse on Pulse 106.9". Still pretty stupid, but that's the best I can do for now.
Now comes the hardest part: the logo. I've spent the past three days coming up with ideas for the logo. I've been browsing dafont.com to try and come up with a font I liked, only to be left empty-handed. Now here I am this morning, trying to find fonts for this stupid logo instead of doing some stuff in an online college class like I probably should be doing. I finally came up with an idea: Use the Prisma font for the "Pulse", and have the frequency in an oval under the letters in the Alba font. The end result would be something like the KAZR-HD2 logo.
The easiest part for me will be designing the website. I already have a general idea of what I want, I'll just need to find some background textures I like.
After that, time to find some more music...
