After several month's testing, Christchurch dance station Pulzar FM will launch officially next Monday on 88.3FM.

Pulzar is the Christchurch equivalent of George (Auckland) and Firm (Wellington), New Zealand's other high profile dance stations, operating on low power transmitters in the 88 and 100 band, says Station Manager Andy Poulsen.

With a focus on announcer-driven commercial dance cuts during the day, and DJ mix shows from 9pm each night (excluding Friday/Saturday, where the mix kicks off at midnight), Pulzar brings pulsing dance beats to central Christchurch.

"Operating as a low power station has it's drawbacks in coverage, but listener loyalty and a slow rollout of satellite transmitters should give us a healthy standing in a hugely competitive radio market," says Andy.
