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.

Johnny Cash and Daisy Bates are both getting their due from their home state


Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. The Man In Black and a civil rights icon are both getting their due from their home state. Johnny Cash and Daisy Bates will be honored with statues representing Arkansas at the U.S. Capitol later this year. Bates was a prominent civic leader and organizer who mentored the Little Rock Nine, the Black students who integrated Central High School in 1957.


JOHNNY CASH: (Singing) When you get the blues, come on, get rhythm. When you get the blues, get a rock 'n' roll feeling.

MARTIN: It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
