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.

Today, we caught up with HPPR's former high-school intern Rafael Rodriguez. He's now a hip-hop artist & producer living in far-north California. This Saturday night, he's returning to his hometown of Amarillo for a LIVE HIP-HOP SHOW, and he's bringing his friend and collaborator, Davey Legend, with him. The two of them joined us on "High Plains Morning" to talk about the show, their work in the music industry, and growing up in wide open spaces.

From our first batch of high-school interns in the Fall of 2018 to the rolling hills of northern California, HPPR's own Rafael Rodriguez, who now performs, writes and produces music under the moniker 4DRIAN, joined me today on High Plains Morning to chat about his upcoming show on Sat. night, February 4th at The Dog House (1209 S. Arthur St., Amarillo). He joined us via video chat from Redding, CA with his friend, musical collaborator, and featured performer at this weekend's show, Davey Legend.

We talk about breaking into the music scene in Amarillo + California, as well as the production of the video they created for the song "Seance!." ("Never doubt Billy Bennett Films!") Hear our full interview on the link at the top of this page, and spread the word about the show!

MORE ABOUT THE SHOW THIS SATURDAY NIGHT:
Rap/Hip-Hop Show @ The Dog House (Amarillo)—Empresario, Kid Carrillo, 4DRIAN & More!

The Dog House will host this showcase of local and national talent. Amarillo native 4DRIAN (Rafael Rodriguez) returns home from California, and he's bringing artist Davey Legend (Redding, CA) with him for this show!

4DRIAN, who is a producer, engineer, writer, and recording artist says, "Davey Legend is a recording artist, engineer, & producer who runs Calvin Sunday Studios. I met him about a year ago when I moved to Cali and was looking for a recording studio for my music. My music is hard to define, but it lives somewhere near hip-hop or rap. It's quite experimental, so it doesn't really fall into a genre. Come see the set!"
