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.

How to ask Alexa what radio station is playing? (Am not using Tunein)

I listen to various radio stations on my Echo and they usually have their own skill.  Sometimes I use the MyTuner skill.

What do I say to get Alexa to tell me the name of the station that's playing?



(I don't use Tunein.)

Alexa uses Amazon streeming music channels. If you ask for songs by Beyonce that is what you get. Like youtube. So some stations you ask for can't be recognised. If for example you ask for BBC radio York and then ask for the name of the station you will ger "MMM I don't know that one".

I get that too!  Alexa does know the radio station playing because the Alexa app will show the station playing under "Activity".
