My next stint on the AM/FM Show will be Saturday, March 10 at 6:00

Pulse will play at the Maingate dance club in Allentown by the
fairgrounds. Friday, March 16, Pulse will play from 6:00 pm to 10:00
pm. We've added some Beatles tunes to the repertoire that you won't
want to miss.

PULSE plays at the level of a tribute band without specializing on any
one band. This is no mean feat! This high caliber Classic Rock band
plays the music of Steely Dan, Santana, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Moody
Blues, Jethro Tull, Blues Brothers, Beatles, and other top shelf
groups. The group includes Greg Van Allen (guitars and vocals), Rod
Gilkeson (vocals), Bob Ashmore (Keyboards), Bill Fox (bass and vocals),
and Billy Fenstermacher (drums and vocals).

You can hear WDIY at 88.1 FM in the Allentown and Bethlehem area, 93.9
FM in Easton and Phillipsburg, 93.7 FM in Fogelsville and Trexlertown,
and on the internet.

Pinnacle and TriPod were deeply disappointed that the show last
Saturday was canceled due to broken water pipes! To hear Pinnacle in
concert, please mark Saturday, May 19 on your calendar when Pinnacle
and a great band called Advent will play a concert at the New Jersey
Proghouse. Advance Tickets will be available at
The secret cover tune that Pinnacle was going to play is mmphglsmphffrm
and will be included in our set in May. ;-)

Reactions to Meld, our latest CD, is overwhelmingly great! We think
you're in for a real treat when you buy the CD! Order five now! CDs
are available at our website and at CD Baby at

Meld is now at iTunes! If you have iTunes on your computer, go to:

WLVR, WDIY, and WMUH are already playing tracks from Meld as well as
many internet radio stations!!!!!

Meld was mastered at Star City Recording by Carl Cadden James (of
InsideOut recording group Shadow Gallery) under the supervision of
legendary producer Jeff Glixman (Kansas, Yngwie Malmsteen). The cover
art was done by Martin Kornick who has done covers for Emerson, Lake &
Palmer, Transatlantic, and the mighty Spock's Beard.

Our first CD of five original tunes and one extra bonus surprise (after
all this time, is it still a surprise?) is available at our website and
at CD Baby! You can also see any member of the band to buy your very
own copy of our first release called "A Man's Reach..." We had fun
putting it together and still love the results. Check it out at
