The Featured CD at Midnight will be "Day Out of Time" on Timeroom
Editions Records. The Vinyl Starter will be from the LP "Tibetan Bells

Galactic Travels is an electronic, ambient, and space music show that
airs each Thursday at 11:04 pm on WDIY 88.1 FM, Allentown and
Bethlehem, 93.9 FM in Easton and Phillipsburg, 93.7 FM in Fogelsville
and Trexlertown, on the internet, and in High Definition Radio at 88.1


Pulse will play at the Maingate dance club in Allentown by the
fairgrounds. Friday, May 11, Pulse will play from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
We've added the Beatles Abbey Road side two medley to the repertoire.
Come on out to hear us play it for the first time in public. (We
played it just a FEW times last night at rehearsal!! Tee, hee!) You
won't want to miss this. It's the "Friday Office Party" designed to
help you come straight from work and blow off some serious steam.

For the second year in a row, Pulse has been invited to play at the
Fifth Annual Michaels & Layne Classic Hits Showcase on May 19. Pulse
nine other bands go from noon to 6 pm. These are the best ten out of
the 80 bands that threw their hat into the ring. See any band member
for cheap advance tickets. Your donation helps Big Brother-Big Sister
of the Lehigh Valley and make you eligible for PRIZES!

Pulse REALLY would like to see you at every event but June 9 at Club
316 is shaping up to be a do-not-miss event! See you there at 8:00 pm

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).

Red is the acoustic dynamic duo featuring Pinnacle's Karl Eisenhart on
guitar and Chris Michels on fiddle and mandolin. The good folks at
Bear Creek seem to have adopted RED to help them build their Friday
night business. Friday, May 11th Red will be a' hootin' and a'
hollerin' at Bear Creek once again! 8:30 (or so) to 11:30 are the
magic hours. It's a REALLY nice room with NO SMOKING and YES, there's
DRINKING! And FOOD. And most importantly MUSIC! Check out Bear
Creek's website for directions.

My next stint on the AM/FM Show will be Saturday, May 12 at 6:00 am.
I will continue the special on E-dition Electronic Music Magazine's
sampler CDs. I will play the music of bands playing on the 19th at the
New Jersy Proghouse and at The Gatherings.

Tune in to WMUH Allentown at 91.7 FM, broadcasting from the campus of
Muhlenberg College. I alternate hosting the show with Bruce. When I
am at the helm, the show features electronic, ambient, and spacemusic
at the beginning, an eclectic mix of genres in the middle, and winds
up with Progressive Rock. WMUH's web site is


NEXT SATURDAY, MAY 19th...PINNACLE with special guest ADVENT will be in
concert at the NEW JERSEY PROGHOUSE in Metuchen, New Jersey. The show
starts at 7:30. Metuchen is just a shade over an hour away from the
beautiful Lehigh Valley. It promises to be a fun night. If you don't
come, how will you know what cool super-secret songs Pinnacle has

Read the latest Meld review atProGGnosis:

"[Pinnacle] are able to competently infuse their obvious influences
with a good degree of originality..."
- MJBrady

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
