Is there a way to mimic the Boom's snooze button's ability to display the next alarm on the Radio? Alternatively, can the "off" screensaver be set to show the next alarm?

It's a lot of work to turn the device on and press the alarm button to view the next alarm when you're going to sleep and you just want to make sure of the time of the next alarm.

I like this idea !
My wife turns the alarm off every weekend, because she just sees the 'alarm on' icon, and doesn't want to look into every alarm if it is disabled for the weekend.
Showing day+time of the next alarm would solve this.

100% support for this idea also from my side :-)

Sounds like an excellent opportunity for a 3rd party app can be written

I disagree.

As an alarm clock, this is pretty basic and important.

When there's an alarm set to go off in the next 24 hours, an icon and the time for the next alarm should be displayed.

Seems like a must-have for 7.5 to me, feel free to vote here:

I certainly voted.

This works great on the Boom -- which is why I brought it up.

After I set my first alarm on the Radio, with the power off, I pressed the dedicated alarm button, assuming that when off it would show the next alarm.

Seems like a natural thing to me: using the alarm button to display the next alarm.
