To be able to listen to us from your Alexa smart speaker you have to first teach Alexa the "skill" of finding and then being able to play Rutland and Stamford Sound. In other words, you enable Alexa to recognise Rutland and Stamford Sound and play it when you ask. And you only have to do it once!
The easiest way to do this is to say these words: "Alexa, enable Rutland and Stamford Sound"
Alternatively, click the link below to enable it from your Amazon account , making sure you log into the same Amazon account to which your Alexa speaker is attached.
Once enabled by either of these methods, just say "Alexa, play Rutland and Stamford Sound" and you'll be able to listen to us anywhere you have an 'Alexa' device!
