What other commands would be helpful for our Maine Public listeners and viewers to use to access our content? We have a few ideas, but we want to hear yours! Send us an email to RSVP@mainepublic.org and tell us what commands you would like to see your device respond to. Play specific shows like Down Memory Lane? Tell you what is on CREATE tonight? There are all sorts of possibilities! We will take all of the submissions and randomly pick 15 people to win a new Amazon Echo Dot! The drawing will be held the first week of January!
