Ask The Point

Before you email us your question - Check out these Frequently Asked Questions below

When is Pointfest? Who’s playing Pointfest? Where can I find the schedule for Pointfest?

Answer: Pointfest will typically take place once a year – usually in May or June – but may take place at any time of year depending on when the boss man can find bands to play.  Whenever we announce a Pointfest we immediately update 1057thepoint.com with all the info on the bands, the date of the show, etc. So if you're not finding any info on the main page of 1057thepoint.com on our next Pointfest then that means we haven't announced it yet. Keep checking back on the main page of our website or click on the Pointfest link for new updates/info.

For the actual show – the official confirmed line-up of set times and stage assignments is not released until 24-48 hours prior to the show date.  As soon as we receive the confirmed set times and stage assignments we email that out to all Point Club members via email and post to our social media pages – so look for the Pointfest set times the day before the show

Can I get the Point on my mobile phone? Computer? Where and how can I listen to The Point besides my radio?

Answer: Check out our Where to Listen section for info on our available apps, browser download options, etc. Also you should definitely check out our nextradio page for details on how the nextradio app allows you to listen to FM radio on select phones without using up all your battery and data.

How do I get a Point // NINJA // Rizzuto Show Sticker?

Answer: Check out our “Get A Sticker” page for details on how to send us a self-addressed stamped envelope with your sticker request

Will you guys play my band/music on The Point?

Answer: We do NOT accept music submissions or requests for airplay through our "Ask The Point" email address. The "Ask The Point" email address is intended for use by Point listeners who want to ask questions about contests/events/giveaways/etc. Email submissions / Press releases / questions about airplay sent to the "Ask The Point" email are NOT read or viewed by anyone in our Programming Department.

Check out the Sunday Night Local Show page for info on how to submit your band for play on the Local Show.

I won tickets or a prize! Can you guys mail me that prize?

Answer: Unfortunately our policy is that The Point can NOT mail out tickets/prizes to contest winners. If you've won a prize on The Point, unless the DJ specifically instructs you otherwise, you must pick up that prize from the radio station during our normal business hours. For information about our lobby hours and for directions to the station click here.

What song did you guys just play? Who sings this one song I heard?

Answer: Check out the "Recently Played" section on our website. Most of the songs we played over the past 5 days should be available on that list. View the most recent Point Playlist for the top 30 songs played on the Point in the last week.

An upcoming Point concert sold out and I didn't buy tickets in time! Will you guys hook me up with tickets?

Answer: All tickets that we are provided by bands/management/concert venues are allocated for giveaway on-air, on 1057thepoint.com, on our Facebook/Twitter pages, or at an upcoming station event. So unfortunately we do NOT have "extras" to hook up listeners unless they are able to win during one of our many ticket giveaways.

How do I contact The Rizzuto Show?

Answer: Instead of emailing the “Ask The Point” email send an email straight to The Rizzuto Show at rizzshow@1057thepoint.com

I got a text from The Point saying I have been opted OUT of all texting campaigns at 48258? Have I been blocked on the texter?  Why did I get that weird text after sending you guys a message?

Answer: There is a new annoying development with texting that is out of our control.  New regulations require our texting service to send you that opt-out message if any part of your message you sent to 48258 includes the word "Stop". So if you're text said something like “Stop playing this song” then it would have prompted that opt-out message. It shouldn't affect you from texting the station in the future. If you have any issues texting the station in the future email us, but you should still be able to text the studio even though you received that automated message

Does The Point have any current job openings? How do I become a DJ and get on-air at The Point?

Answer: Any current job postings are available for review on the website of our parent company EMMIS COMMUNICATIONS.  You can view any currently available employment opportunities for The Point and all other Emmis radio stations at Emmis.com
