Zachariah Saucedo, long term member of EPCC radio, talks about the upcoming events being hosted by the college.
“Students and other listeners may call the station to request songs and get involved in the radio shows. Pulse radio plays a large variety of clean and neat songs which are selected from Youtube or an iTunes playlist created by one of the DJs,” said Daisy Morales, Vice-President and part-time DJ.
Listeners are able to call in and request songs they want to hear.
“As long as they are radio friendly, meaning no cuss words or violence toward society, the song may be played on the radio,” said Luisa Morado, Marketing Director of Pulse radio.
“Radio is an instant approach to people, its closer to the people and has the ability to promote other clubs.”
Not everyone who joined the club knew that EPCC had a radio station.
“I had no idea there was a radio station. One day I was walking by and noticed it. But there was no one in the room,” said Morales.
“It was not until a job fair when I was actually able to talk to someone who worked on the radio.”
All students enrolled at EPCC can apply to become a part of the radio station.
Students shouldn’t be afraid or shy to approach the club because they think they don’t have a radio voice.
“I was not always able to speak well,” said Morales, “but being in the radio helped me to speak professional.”
Being involved in the club isn’t restricted to just having airtime.
DJs and club members also host events and remotes open to all students and the community.
“The club has events where we get to give away items to other students and promote the radio,” said Morado.
Students interested in joining the radio can visit the station located in building C, room 103 at the Valle Verde campus.
