It’s not the first time a pirate radio station has come in from the cold (Phantom FM is one legit station that once flew the Jolly Roger), but the arrival of Pulse on RTÉ’s digital airwaves is an interesting development.

Pulse FM was a pirate dance station which broadcast across Dublin until 2007. Former Pulse station manager Mark McCabe is now one of those involved with RTÉ’s digital radio strategy, and he is using the Pulse name – and apparently some of the station’s old tags and one-liners – for RTÉ’s new digital dance station.

Currently test-broadcasting with classic dance hits, house, disco and trance, RTÉ Pulse’s first live transmission will be from the Planet Love festival taking place this weekend in Fairyhouse, Co Meath.
