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.

What's cooler than a Beatles bio-pic? 4 Beatles biopic

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "OB-LA-DI, OB-LA-DA")

THE BEATLES: (Singing) Ob-la-di, ob-la-da...

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. What's cooler than a Beatles biopic made by an Academy Award-winning director? Four Beatles biopics. According to Dateline (ph), Sam Mendes is set to direct four movies about the Fab Four, with each film focusing on a band member's point of view. While they say "All You Need Is Love," these films also got the blessings of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and the estates of John Lennon and George Harrison so that it can all (singing) come together. No, not right now. Later - you know, when the films come out. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
