Listen on Alexa

You can listen to HLR on many Alexa-powered devices. To do this you first need to install an Alexa ‘skill’. There are several to choose from. Here’s how: –

First, login to your Amazon account. Then search for Live365 Skill and enable it (it’s free).

Now you can play HLR on your Alexa device by saying “Alexa, play Live Three Sixty-Five Heckington Living Community Radio” (note that it is spoken “sixty-five” not “six-five”.

The next time you want to play HLR, just say “Alexa play Live Three Sixty-Five”. Alexa will remember the last station you played (i.e. HLR – what else would you have been listening to!) and ask whether you want to listen to the station again. Say “Yes”. Or if the last thing you did on Alexa was listen to HLR just say “Alexa, resume”.

If you have difficulty getting the Live365 skill to work, try the Simple Radio Skill. This works in much the same way but for some users seems to recognise “Heckington Living Community Radio” more easily. Once installed say “Alexa ask Simple Radio to Play Heckington Living Community Radio”.

We hope you enjoy listening to HLR on Alexa!
