How to use the CKUA Alarm Clock:

You can access the clock on the right-hand side of the menu bar, under “More.”. When the menu pops up, tap “Alarm Clock.”

Set the time you’d like to wake up, as well as the name of a host for a morning greeting.

When the alarm goes off, a push notification will appear in your notification bar and a default ringing sound will play until acknowledged.

Tap or swipe the push notification and enter your passcode (if applicable) to open the app. Then choose either snooze or dismiss the alarm.
The selected announcer audio will start to play. After the greeting has finished, the station stream will begin.

If you select more than one announcer, all chosen announcers’ audio will play before the stream is launched.
