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.

R&B singer Clarence 'Frogman' Henry dies at 87

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. R&B singer Clarence Henry has died. Nicknamed "Frogman" for the way he would sing, Henry scored his biggest hit in 1956 with "Ain't Got No Home."

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "AIN'T GOT NO HOME")

CLARENCE HENRY: (Singing) I'm a lonely frog. I ain't got no home.

MARTÍNEZ: A fixture of the New Orleans music scene, Henry retired from the club circuit in 1981, though he made annual appearances at the city's Jazz and Heritage Festival. Henry was 87 years old. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
