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.

A British man just ran the entire length of Africa — nearly 10,000 miles

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

A British man just ran the entire length of Africa - nearly 10,000 miles - starting in South Africa and finishing in Tunisia. It took Russ Cook 352 days. That's about 28 miles on average each day, more than a marathon. Cook has in the past run from Istanbul to London. He also holds a record for the fastest marathon while pulling a car. On his African adventure, he raised over three-quarters of a million dollars for charity.
