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.

Looking Back with Gratitude: The Mail Bag

Chapter Seven—The Mail Bag: Letters to the Station ~ The Mail Bag reported two letters of special interest – both mentioning the Wall Street Journal article, November 29, 1982, p.1:

Dear Mr. Hope,

I recently had the pleasure of reading an account of KANZ’s accomplishment in the Wall Street Journal.


I wish to congratulate you and your staff on this success. Your service to the listeners of the Pierceville area is indeed commendable. I wish you continued success.

Sincerely yours,

Bob Dole

United States Senator

Dear Judy (Seligson, News and Public Affairs Director),

I very much enjoyed reading about KANZ in the “Wall Street Journal” and took heart from the tales of  enterprise and invention which apparently mark your place. If I’d known earlier about the tomato-paste-can-and-rubber-band gambit, I would have long ago exchanged our shock mounts for some useful piece of merchandise, like a coffee pot. …Interestingly, a number of my friends who work in New York for other networks find your news program more midwestern in tone and pacing than their own products, which is meant in a flattering sense; they find us, by contract to their own efforts, calm, reasoned and independent.
