Ways to Connect

Listening to the WKSU and Folk Alley streams is easy on your voice-activated Smart Speaker Device - such as Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, Google Home or Mini, or Sonos One with Alexa. All of these devices play WKSU's TuneIn streams through a WIFI connection, giving you instant access to all of WKSU's streaming content, including special seasonal streams. WKSU's primary streams are also available through iTunes and can be played through your Apple TV and Apple Homepod.
