Indie Rock from Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

DMPulse Relocating

by Jay Boeding on July 29, 2014

After nearly 10 years originating from Des Moines, Iowa, the taste-making indie/alternative internet radio station DMPulse is relocating. “Moving the station to Waverly, Iowa, is in many ways a return to where the dream of creating an internet radio station began. My love of discovering new music and sharing it with listeners began during my years as a student at Wartburg College,” said Jay Boeding, founder and Executive Director of D.M. Pulse Media.

During his time as a student at Wartburg, Boeding was active with the college’s radio station, KWAR-FM. “In 1998, I was station manager of KWAR when it began streaming online, becoming an early adopter of the then emerging technology of streaming media. In 2004, my first internet broadcast was created for my 5-year class reunion at Wartburg, airing songs that were popular during my years in college. That stream was simply something fun to share with friends initially, but from graduation, the dream in the back of my mind was to operate a radio station someday,” said Boeding.

Boeding was recently named a Major Gift Officer in the Development department at his alma mater, Wartburg College. DMPulse is a non-profit listener-supported internet radio station with listeners in more than 200 countries worldwide.
