When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Ok here’s what I’m trying to accomplish.

Hey Alexa play Jazz

1)   Turn on my receiver which is connected to my Harmony hub. <-that works using the harmony skill
2)   Then tune to a Jazz station using Amazon Music | Unlimited
3)   And have it default to my Everywhere group

Thanks, _paul

That’s the dream, but we aren’t quite there yet. You are describing a Routine, but right now only step 1 can be added to an Alexa routine. I don’t use amazon music, but at this point I think you are stuck with “Alexa, turn on receiver” then “Alexa, play jazz everywhere”. I do this with my setup using Spotify or Sirius XM, but I do have to specify the playlist or station i want.

How about jus going to the station, e.g.  Alexa, stream WWOZ
works for me, as does
    "smooth jazz"   "modern jazz quartet"
the only one I can't get is  "Tuba Skinny"
