Because of the volume of communications we receive, the best way to ensure that we see messages about show content or programming is to post them at the bottom of the day’s show at our Web site, in the listener comment thread. We welcome suggestions, criticisms, or thoughts on further shows. Tom and the staff read those messages every day. Or, send us a message on Twitter or Facebook.
For other business, you can reach On Point at: onpointnpr at gmail.com or @onpointradio on Twitter. We will try our best to get to every message.
If you’re curious about the music used during On Point station breaks, please refer to our regularly updated blog post on the songs used during the show.
To join the conversation on the air, call our toll-free number 1-800-423-8255 during a live broadcast.
Three things to remember when calling On Point:
Please turn off your radio
Having a radio on the background creates an echo due to the slight delay in broadcast times. Please turn off your radio and listen to the program on your phone’s handset.
The best sound comes from using a land line telephone. Please use one if it is available. But whether it is a cell phone or land line, please don’t put us on speakerphone.
When you get on the air…
Please don’t say things like “Good morning,” since we air at different times all around the country. Stick with “Hi, Tom.” First names are fine with us!
To request a CD of a program that aired on On Point, feel free to call 1-800-909-9287. There is a $15 charge for each CD, including shipping and handling. We don’t produce transcripts, as the cost remains prohibitively expensive for 10 hours of programming a week.
