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.

Visiting Norway? Enjoy the fjords but leave the walruses alone

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. Visiting Norway isn't complicated. Enjoy the fjords, but leave the walruses alone. One tourist didn't get the memo. People in the Norwegian arctic archipelago of Svalbard called authorities when they saw a man climb onto an ice floe to approach a resting walrus. The local prosecutor thinks he was only looking for a good photo, but the tourist was still fined about $1,100. He'll remember that until he's long in the tooth.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "I AM THE WALRUS")

THE BEATLES: (Singing) I am the walrus.
