We know you love Led Zeppelin. You know we love Led Zeppelin. What you may not know is that we want to share the love with you. With Zeppelin like you've never heard them before. We have advanced copies of newly remastered deluxe editions of Zep IV and Houses of the Holy each remastered by Jimmy Page himself. In addition to the album itself, we've got a second disc of unreleased companion audio of demos corresponding to each album. You could run out to the stores to grab the first copies that hit Humboldt. Or you could win them before they're even out by listening to the Point. We'll let you know how soon, just keep listening.

Led Zeppelin. Four powerhouse musicians. Eleven years. One distinctive sound that changed rock and roll forever. By now we've heard it all, from their debut album all the way through Coda. But now there's more. With previously unreleased audio from Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy. Exclusive interviews with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Robert Plant you can hear Zeppelin like you've never heard them before. Tune into the Point at 5pm on Friday October 31st (a fine way to kick off your Halloween shenanigans) for an hour long Led Zeppelin radio special. You'll only hear it on live and local rock and roll radio, right here on The Point.

Tune in this Tuesday at 6 P.M. to hear the Album of the Week, one of rock's newest albums in its entirety, cover to cover through the hits and the deeper cuts. Album of the Week is each and every Tuesday only here on The Point.

As your local rock radio station, we care about our neighbors loved ones.. That includes those of the furry four legged variety.  We know how horrible it feels to have one of your pets disappear, and that's why we created The Paws Cause.  We've created an entire site devoted to helping you find your lost friends.  The Paws Cause site gives you the opportunity to upload a picture of your lost pet, give a graphic google map location of where they were last known to be AND creates a printable flyer with all the pertinent information of your missing friend.. And on top of that -- it immediately sends an email alert to the Point studio so we can announce your lost pet on air.. Lost your pet? Post it on Paws Cause..
