I thought I might get WION thru Alexa, but no joy. That would have been too easy.

Well, I got something. Not sure it’s what I wanted.

That’s “I” not “1” right? Eye not one.

“1” gets some University Radio. HARSH. So I guess I answered my own question.

“Alexa, scroll up...”
“I have no display to scroll.”

Fiddling around, I finally got it, with some variant of asking for WION. It then gave me an error message about not being able to connect, but seems to be playing fine.

Of course, out of a Dot.......

Alexa works just fine...but please remember...do your voice training with your app first!
Some people get it with a clear "WION" but..if you "dubba you" or don't speak clearly she can't tell what you want.
Many folks use, "I-1430" or "America's biggest little radio station." I like that one. Hard to get it wrong.
We're definitely there, ready to play for you, and on google home devices, too. You'll have to find the unique voice/dialect combination to do it best.

We COULD pay big bucks for a "skill" for less error, but in all honesty, I think a few tries will be worth the listeners' effort...then it's easy after that!

Let me/us know how it goes with different phrases tried.
