Soon the communities of the Greater Logan Heights area will have a strong voice on the airwaves.
Radio Pulso del Barrio begins broadcasting on AM1600 on Saturday, April 19th, live from Chicano Park during the annual event that commemorates the takeover of the land where the iconic park sits.
The station, which will cover a distance of about two miles around Logan Heights, is made possible thanks to an art initiative called Open Spaces, which is funded by the James Irvine Foundation through a grant administered by the San Diego Museum of Art.
Radio Pulso del Barrio will be “a community powered radio station geared to inform, educate and entertain the Logan heights and greater area,” according to its mission statement.
