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.

Why more than 1,000 sea lions are lounging at Pier 39 in San Francisco

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. More than a thousand sea lions are lounging at Pier 39 in San Francisco, Calif. That is double the number that usually shows up on the custom floating piers and a number that hasn't been seen since the early '90s. Why? It turns out that a large school of anchovy is the appeal, so the sea lions can feast and get pretty in preparation for their journey south for the mating season.
