Until recently Alexa would play BBC Radio 4 and 6 music on request. Now when I ask for radio 4, it plays an American station. When I ask for Radio 6 Music, it selects various BBC stations, but not the one I want. I’ve tried many permutations for the request. I see some comments online about Alexa not working with BBC sounds and no longer working with TuneIn, but my Alexa does play BBC radio stations, just not the ones I request!
Many thanks in advance,

No probs, you just need to create a new Trigger via the wizard rather than select an Applet already created. :)
1/ Log in to IFTTT and then click on your profile picture and select ‘Create’;
2/ Click on the ‘+’ symbol in the phrase, select ‘Amazon Alexa’ and then select ‘Say a specific phrase’;
3/ Type in your preferred phrase for Alexa to respond to. e.g. ‘play radio 4’;
4/ Click on the newly located ‘+’ symbol and select ‘Sonos’
5/ Select ‘Play Favorite’ and then complete the action fields for the station and the rooms that you want the Audio to output on, followed by ‘Create Action.
6/ Alexa will then respond to ‘Alexa Trigger Play Radio 4’
Just repeat these steps for any other combination of stations and rooms.
