I present a multi-spectral analysis of the faint, uJy, radio source population in the James Webb Space Telescope North Ecliptic Pole Time Domain Field. Very Long Baseline Array pointings at the 127 brightest of ~2500 radio galaxies identified with the Very Large Array indicate active galactic nucleus contamination of approximately 9.45%. My estimates of 4.8 GHz brightness of this radio source population indicate an upper bound on this contamination of 10.6%. This is well within acceptable limits, in population studies, for the use of the radio-FIR relation in the JWST NEP TDF. This improves the utility of the field to the community by reducing the need for expensive FIR observations. I have also developed an extensive catalog of magnitudes and other data in visible bands of this population. My analysis in these bands does not give any conclusive criteria for distinguishing between AGN and SFGs. The strongest trends I do identify appear to be due to reddening by interstellar dust. Future follow-up will focus on characterizing individual sources in further depth.
