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.

Center For The Study Of The American West To Screen Western Films In Amarillo

CSAW

Next week, the Center for the Study of the American Westwill screen two classic Westerns in Amarillo, with a brief introduction to both films by Western scholar Alex Hunt.

The films are the legendary John Wayne-John Ford collaboration, The Searchers, on Wednesday, and John Huston's 1960, The Unforgiven, on Thursday. Both movies are set in West Texas.

The filmswill be shown at 7 p.m. in Amarillo College’s Concert Hall Theater, with a panel discussion to follow.

Both screenings are free and open to the public.

The Center for the Study of the American West (or “CSAW”), based at West Texas A&M, has grown rapidly in recent years, bringing scholars, novelists, and artists to the area to lecture. The center’s stated mission is “to promote the study of the American West, both as a region culturally unique and as a product of broad historical forces.”
