    just wondering if anyone has one, looking at buying a new D.A.B radio for the bedroom then came across these,£70 for the D.A.B + £10 for rechargeable batteries, £50 for the dot from argos, what i want to know is could i say "alexa, play radio 5 " or whatever station ?, it will be in the bedroom only & want it purely for radio & alarm

    Got mine Bluetoothed to a set of Sony speakers sounds great.
    I pay £4 a month to amazon and get 40 million songs to play with
