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.

This week, the April 8 total solar eclipse inspired Barbie-level coverage mania at NPR.

To make it into the "path of totality," humans are persisting in the face of flight delays and traffic to have transcendentexperiences and forge lifelong memories, perhaps by taking phone photos and avoiding eye damage. So grab your eclipse glasses and/or heed the words of a 104-year-old man who saw the 1932 total eclipse: "All I can say is that it was pretty near dark."

In the name of not further saturating the eclipse content lineup, the quiz has only one eclipse question (unless you count the "singer" eclipsed by Beyoncé). Good luck!
