Fall and the cool weather often means that our CityStops end up inside, but have no fear! They are just as awesome…
Last Friday I teamed up with Single Parent Night at Valley Community Center for a great opportunity to speak to kids about the importance of music decisions. Because the event was hosted inside, I was able to set up in a room and talk for 10 minutes to 3 separate age groups about the mission of our station and what it means to listen to good, wholesome music that relates to them and grows them. I was able to speak to 12 year-olds all the way down to 3 year-olds and the best part was, the littlest guys loved it too!
We are passionate about educating our community and our youth about music. If you have a group of kids you’d like to share our mission with, I’d love to stop buy and talk to them! Sign up today by filling out a CityStop form HERE!
Join with Pulse 99.5FM in making a difference this Fall as we partner with some great organizations to support kids in need! We’re teaming up with the Winter Warmth Drive for our Fill the Truck event on November 4/5. Students all over central Iowa are collecting gently used winter gear (coats, hats, boots, etc.) and redistributing them to students who need them, right in their own neighborhoods. If you aren’t already giving through a local school, we invite you to help us “fill the truck” at Chick-Fil-A on Mills Civic. Drop off an item (or three!), and pop inside to try the new 8-piece grilled nuggets, on the house when you make your donation.
It’s time to begin filling a shoebox to support children all over the world through Operation Christmas Child! You pack items for a boy or girl in a regular shoebox, and Samaritan’s Purse delivers it somewhere in the world to a child in need! National collection week is November 17-24. Want to know what to pack in your shoebox? For a list of local drop-off sites, click here.
Last, but not least, please remember Pulse 99.5FM in your year-end giving. We rely on your gifts to reach thousands of listeners each year with a message of truth through music. Your gifts help change lives (and are tax-deductible!). Thank you for your support as we launch into another year on the air in Des Moines and central Iowa!
You may have heard some of his stuff before, some of his songs include “Vanilla Twilight” and “Fireflies,” but Adam Young of Owl City is on to something new… We recently (today in fact) added a one of his songs to our playlist, a collaboration with Britt Nicole called “You’re Not Alone.”
We’re super excited to add Owl City on board to our list of talented musicians. It’s refreshing and exciting to see an artist who has a name in mainstream music to share a message of hope with our radio audience. Check out his this new song by listening on air OR visit out Top 20 page and link to iTunes!
Join us as we help “Fill the Truck” at Chick-Fil-A on Mills Civic for the Winter Warmth Drive! Swing by between 7:30AM and 8PM on Tuesday or Wednesday, November 4th or 5th to donate gently used or new winter items that will be distributed to students right here in central Iowa to help them keep warm this winter! Pulse 99.5FM will be there playing great music, and you’ll receive a certificate for a free 8-pc grilled nuggets to Chick-Fil-A! RSVP and SHARE the Facebook event here.
We had a great weekend for CityStops! The weather was gorgeous for the different fall events we stopped out to…
Saturday morning we made a stop at Park Avenue Christian Church for their annual fall craft show. We have been invited out the past couple of years to sit in the front of the church and play music for this event. There were tons of great vendors with homemade gifts and AMAZING baked goods.
Of course we made a stop out to North River Adventure Corn Maze. It was a perfect, cool, clear evening for it! We passed out a number of music guides to people who had never heard of our station. Be sure to make a visit out there before it closes in November!
Last, we stopped out to Berean Church in Pleasant Hill for their 15th Annual Giant Hay Bail… It’s always great to hang out with a crowd that knows and loves our station!
If you have a fall event on your calendar and would like us to stop out for it, be sure to sign up for a CityStop!
We kicked off October CityStops with a great one in StoryCity last week! Rachel leigh and Danielle swung by Macaroni Kid’s MOPs event Thursday morning and chatted with the moms about positive music decisions. It was a blast sharing our music and handing out goodies and music guides to the kids. If you are interested in having us out to talk to your group about positive music decisions, let us know – We would love to stop by!
September was an AWESOME month for Christian Music releases, starting with Lecrae’s #Anomaly album and recently concluding with Switchfoot’s Edge of Earth EP.
After #Anomaly hit the top of the charts on iTunes, For King and Country released their new album Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong. The album includes the latest Pulse hit, ‘Fix My Eyes’ and other great songs! You can download ‘Fix My Eyes’ and the rest of the album by linking to our Pulse Top 20 Page!
The latest September release of Switchfoot’s Edge of Earth EP is a compilation of songs from the band’s latest movie documentary, a film about the creation of their album Fading West – the EP features exclusive songs to the film. It’s a refreshing change as some of the songs on the album are sung by different members of the band! If you haven’t seen their documentary ‘Fading West’ it is available to stream on Netflix.
