Pulse 87 DJ Abel Sanchez Joins K104 in Poughkeepsie

Abel Sanchez, the afternooon DJ for online radio station Pulse 87, has been named to the on-air staff at WSPK/K 104 in Poughkeepsie.

“I’m packing up the beach toys and getting into the studios on the weekends… and during the week still doing the Pulse 87 online (www.pulse87ny.com) afternoon thing,” Sanchez tells FishbowlNY.

In his spare time, the jock is always looking to include production work in his schedule.

As far as working at K 104, Sanchez is ecstatic.

“I’m super excited to be part of a great station that has dominated ratings, and work for an awesome PD [program director] such as Scotty Mac,” Sanchez says. “I’m 100 percent on the same page with [him] and the entire staff.”

New York Media Reacts to Singer Amy Winehouse’s Death

On Saturday, a talented, albeit troubled singer died.  Amy Winehouse was 27. While the official cause of death hasn’t been determined, it has been widely speculated that she died of a drug overdose or alcohol abuse. As recently as May, Winehouse was back in a rehabilitation facility.   

Her death was tragic to millions of fans worldwide, but unfortunately she was headed on a collision course for an untimely death.

“[I] haven’t played her stuff in awhile due to [a] lack of  hits, but it’s sad once again to see someone with talent get snuffed away by drugs,” Abel Sanchez, DJ at Internet station Pulse 87, tells FishbowlNY.  “Sad to say, I kind of think this was the news we all hoped never to hear but in some way expected it.”

Amazingly, Winehouse joins the infamous group ”27 Club” with Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison who died at the age of 27.
