Remember when rock n' roll was good? We do...

The Point is Live and Local Rock N Roll featuring primarily rock from the 60’s and 70’s with a smattering of 80’s and 90's rock plus Motown hits and deeper cuts to add flavor. The Point targets Adults 35-64 with a male skew, has a very strong local business following and great coverage into the Eel River Valley and SoHum areas. Though we get deep into the hills and as far north as Brookings, OR.

More than what we play is who we are, our attitude, you know? Like many of the pioneers who made the music we adore, we're not fond of sticking to the straight and narrow. If it's buttoned-up or buttoned-down we're likely to bust its chops...all while making a good deal of fun of ourselves. 

You turn on The Point when you feel like forgetting your troubles or just plain rockin' out. We're not political. We're musical. We just want to kick it and get back to when the music was made by musicians not computers. Check out the other pages to learn more about the music and our audience. It's over there on the left. Your other left. ;-)

 

KWPT "The Point" is classic rock for people who really, really love classic rock.

MEET THE DJs.

Chuck Rogers

Mon-Fri 12PM-6PM

Prior to working at The Point, Chuck was the Executive Producer of a syndicated radio talk show, "A World of Possibilities," based in Arcata, CA. Before that, he worked as a journalist at CBS and ABC TV as well as several radio stations across the country. Chuck grew up in Louisiana and his love of music is directly traceable to his roots.

The Afternoon show is a foray into the best of what album-oriented rock and classic rock can be, delivered in the dulcet golden voiced tones of the one and only Chuck Rogers.

Betty

Mon-Fri 6AM-12PM

Betty got her start in a small Southern Nevada town in the early 1980's, recording pretend radio shows onto cassettes alone in her bedroom. She sure had a lot to say back then! This continued into the 1990's, when she began collecting records and making heartfelt mix-tapes for friends. By the early aughts, her record collection had grown to quite an impressive degree, and she landed a cool job in music retail.

By 2006, Betty found her way to the Bay Area and eagerly began volunteering at UC Berkeley radio station KALX. Within a year, her life-long dream of “being a DJ for reals” had come true, and she remained a weekly programmer at KALX until March 2020.

In addition to her work at KWPT, Betty produces a weekly internet radio program showcasing her ever-expanding collection of vintage exotica, jazz and easy listening records. Betty is also a professional live event DJ with a massive vinyl and digital library. But she doesn’t play just the hits! She’s all about working in deep cuts and surprising audiences with the best songs they’ve never heard (or at least haven’t heard in a while). 

When she’s not on the radio or thinking about what to play on the radio, she is usually reading, writing or hanging out with cats at a local animal rescue.
