The Alexa Skill
This project was born from a personal need that I had. I use Amazon Alexa Dots as my primary audio player in my living room and my office. Unfortunately though, I had no way to listen to Spafford's live shows (except the ones on Spotify) on these devices. So I did what any good engineer does when he has a problem... I wrote code to fix it. Thus was born a new Alexa skill that you too can use to listen to Spafford!
In the meantime... we're going to help YOU take advantage of this audio player by giving away an Alexa dot to three (3) lucky Nerds. The only requirement is that you not own an Alexa enabled device as we're trying to make this skill available to people who can't otherwise try it out.
The rules of the giveaway are pretty standard. We've done this before. All you have to do is add your name to this post. Just reply and say you want to be entered in the drawing, and you're in. You might also consider subscribing to our YouTube Channel, our Facebook Page and our Twitter Feed because they're great resources. You'll get notifications when there's new recordings available, and then you can ask your Alexa to play those recordings for you.
We'll do the drawing next Saturday, March 2nd at 12:00 PM MST. We will pick 3 names at random from the list. If you are chosen, you win. We'll get your mailing address and send you an Echo Dot. As usual you'll have a week to reply to your notification that you've won and if we don't hear from you you'll forfeit your prize.
The drawing will be done on facebook live and the results posted here.
Using The Skill Now
You can use the skill right now if you've got an Alexa enabled device. Here's the written instructions to walk you through it. There's also help videos that show you how to install and use the skill. They are the same ones listed below.

Please enter me! We missed Spafford in January due to the weather, but this would make a nice tide-me-over until the make-up show!
