Ensure that your device is selected in the drop down box at the top of the page. Select “Local Radio” and there you will find all the local stations in your area. Select a station and it will play through your Dot or Echo.

  • To set this station as a favorite, click the music player icon on the bottom right of the screen. Press “Queue”, flip open the arrow, and here you can select this station as a favorite. Now, this station and other favorites can be easily accessed in the “tunein” tab on your Alexa app.
