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.

Taylor Swift's new album, 'The Tortured Poets Department,' is setting records

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG "FORTNIGHT")

TAYLOR SWIFT: (Singing) And for a fortnight there...

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. Taylor Swift is setting records. "The Tortured Poets Department" is Swift's 14th chart topper, tying Jay-Z for most No. 1 albums on the Billboard charts by a soloist. Only The Beatles have more No. 1 albums. "Tortured Poets" has also sold 859,000 vinyl copies in its debut, the most, according to Billboard, since the release of another Swift album, "1989 (Taylor's Version)." It's MORNING EDITION.
