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.

Have you ever wanted to stay in a floating house? Airbnb has the place for you


Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. Have you ever wanted to stay in a floating house, but just didn't have enough balloons? Well, Airbnb has just the place for you. The company announced a new category of listings called Icons. They include Prince's Minneapolis house from "Purple Rain" and one that looks like the house from the Pixar movie "Up," complete with 8,000 balloons attached to the top. Sorry to say, the house doesn't really float. It's held up by a crane over the New Mexico Desert.
