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.

Police dogs across Ohio discovered their skills are obsolete. The dogs were trained to sniff out marijuana, and the state no longer needs their services now that Ohio has legalized recreational pot. Apparently, it's too hard to retrain them to sniff out other drugs, which means the state will have to pay for new dogs, while the old ones are free to wander off into retirement and, if they so choose, light up a big one.
