WKPK is a radio station, part of the Smile FM radio network licensed to Michigamme, Michigan. It was licensed on July 22, 2008, to operate on 88.3 MHz with 15 kW. The station broadcasts from the same tower used by WKQS in Marquette, Michigan. WKPK broadcasts Smile FM programming from flagship station WLGH in Lansing. WKPK is owned by Smile FM; the original construction permit called for the station to transmit from a tower closer to Michigamme with 100 kW on 88.1 MHz. On October 26, 2007 a modification of the original construction permit was granted to move the station northwest of Marquette on 88.3 MHz with reduced power from a much higher tower. During final station construction the antenna height was reduced by 12 meters to avoid other antennas on the same tower; the call letters WKPK were used for many years by WSRT 106.7 in Michigan. - WKPK History Query the FCC's FM station database for WKPK Radio-Locator information on WKPK Query Nielsen Audio's FM station database for WKPK

The People of the Black Circle

"The People of the Black Circle" is one of the original novellas about Conan the Cimmerian, written by American author Robert E. Howard and first published in Weird Tales magazine in three parts over the September and November 1934 issues. Howard earned $250 for the publication of this story. It's set in the pseudo-historical Hyborian Age and concerns Conan kidnapping an exotic princess from Vendhya, while foiling a nefarious plot of world conquest by the Black Seers of Yimsha. Due to its epic scope and atypical Hindustan flavor, the story is considered an undisputed classic of Conan lore and is cited by Howard scholars as one of his best tales, it is one of the few Howard stories where the reader is treated a deeper insight on magic and magicians beyond the stereotypical Hyborian depiction as demon conjurer-illusionist-priests. This Conan story is set in mythical Hyborian versions of India and Afghanistan; the death of Bunda Chand, emperor of Vendhya, leads to the ascension of his sister, Devi Yasmina, who vows to exact vengeance on his killers, the Black Seers of Yimsha.

Meanwhile, Conan has become chief in a tribe of Afghuli hillmen. Seven of his warriors have been captured by the Vendhyans and Yasmina intends on using the hillmen as collateral to force Conan into killing her enemies. However, Conan kidnaps Yasmina instead. Inside his subterranean temple, Yimsha agrees on an alliance with Kerim Shah, a mercenary working for King Yezdigerd of Turan, who had arranged for Bunda Chand's assassination so he could conquer Vendhya in the resulting turmoil. However, a man named Khemsa, Kerim Shah's contact with the Black Seers, has fallen in love with the devi's maid Gitara; these two abandon their previous agenda, execute the captured hillmen, pursue Queen Yasmina to kill her as well. Conan escapes into an Afghuli village near the Himelian Mountains. Yar Afzal, chief of a Wazuli village, is murdered by Khemsa and the natives accuse Conan of killing him. With Yasmina's aid, he manages to escape. Soon, Khemsa catches up with Yasmina. However, his attack is interrupted by their master, Yimsha.

The wizard throws his former servant down a cliff, kills Gitara, stuns Conan with an ancient spell, captures Yasmina. Khemsa survives his fall from the cliffside long enough to give Conan a warning and his magic girdle. Soon after, Kerim Shah and a tribe of Irakzais, hired by King Yezdigerd to capture Yasmina, encounter Conan, they join forces to rescue Yasmina, both explaining their private reasons for doing so, approach the lair of Yimsha. Most of the men are killed in their attempt. However, following Khemsa's advice, Conan succeeds in rescuing Yasmina; as they escape, the two encounter the Turanian army in battle with Conan's tribe of hillmen, who blame him for the death of their captive fellows. Despite their attitude, Conan feels obliged to assist his tribe - but he is loath to abandon the Devi, his problem is resolved. Together, Conan with his Afghulis and Yasmina with her cavalry, they defeat the Turanian army. Conan leaves with Yasmina returns to her country. Though they are attracted to each other, the affair between Conan and Yasmina never gets beyond some kissing.

Their respective roles pull them in opposite directions - she is Queen of Vendhiya, he's leader of nomadic hillmen engaged in constant robbery against Yasmina's domain. In the original Howard stories, they never meet again. In the 1957 novel Return of Conan, Björn Nyberg and L. Sprague de Camp allow the two rivals in encountering each other again for one night of intensive love-making, many years - when he is King of Aquilonia and there is no more a conflict of interest. Everett F. Bleiler noted the story's "Much spectacular magic and interesting characters." Fritz Leiber praised the story lavishly, comparing it to "the melodramas of Marlowe" and declaring "It has stirring language, strong motives, awesome sorcerers, brilliant magical devices, sympathetic hero-villains, a Conan subdued enough to make the outcome interesting." The story was republished in the collections The Sword of Conan the Adventurer. It was first published by itself in book form by Donald M. Grant, Inc. in 1974. It has most been republished in the collections The Conan Chronicles Volume 1: The People of the Black Circle and The Bloody Crown of Conan.

The story was adapted by Roy Thomas, John Buscema and Alfredo Alcala in Savage Sword of Conan #16-19. Conan the Barbarian at The official website The People of the Black Circle public domain audiobook at LibriVox
