KJJP-FM 105.7 is currently operating at 15% of power, limiting its signal strength and range in the Amarillo-Canyon area. This due to complicated problems with its very old transmitter. Local engineers are continuing to work on the transmitter and are consulting with the manufacturer to diagnose and fix the problems. We apologize for this disruption and service as we work as quickly as possible to restore KJPFM to full power. In the mean time you can always stream either the HPPR Mix service or HPPR Connect service using the player above or the HPPR app.

Qatar, host of the World Cup, loses its first match to Ecuador 2-0

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. As the opening match of the World Cup was winding down Sunday, many of the fans of the host Qatar began to leave the stadium early as their team was losing to Ecuador. But the much smaller group of Ecuadorian fans, happy with the victory, began to chant, we want beer. This because, on Friday, Qatari officials reversed course and banned beer sales at the tournament. Only alcohol-free Bud Zero is allowed. In the case of Ecuador beating Qatar, well, that was 2-0. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
