How do I stop a song from playing?

This my be a really easy thing, but … no matter what I push, or rotate, it still will say at the bottom of the screen “now playing…”.  Even if I turn off the player, and turn it back on.

How do I make it stop?!

Thank you

Press the top of the scroll wheel (12 o’clock). That’s the PAUSE/PLAY button. There actually is no stop.

FYI . . . this button also works as a MUTE button when using the FM Radio.
