Listen On Your Smart Speaker

Want to hear fewer ads when listening to KXXO on your Echo (“Alexa”)? Go to your Alexa app on your phone or Amazon and install or enable the KXXO Skill (their term) so it doesn’t default to TuneIn – and all their added ads! NOTE: When commanding Alexa or “Hey Google,” you will only get the correct Mixx 96.1 if you say “Play KXXO.” KXXO, our legal call letters, set us apart from all the other Mix 96.1’s in the country – so you must say “Play KXXO”!
