For quite a while I couldn't find a way to get Alexa to play CBC Radio 2 Toronto. It would always play a different radio station (e.g. CBC Radio 1 or a CBC station in the Bahamas). So I had to use the app to play this station. Finally I found a way to get Alexa to recognize the station: "Alexa, play Radio 2 Toronto from TuneIn in Room X." That worked for a while then one day it stopped working. Once again I cannot find any way to get Alexa to play this station, though I have tried every combination of radio station name, location, frequency, call letters, etc. that I could think of. So I'm back to using the app when I want to listen to this station. Does anyone have any tips as to how I can get Alexa to play this radio station? Thanks in advance for any advice or assistance!

Hi there, KGM. Thanks for posting and welcome to the Community. I tried this at the Office and ran into the same problem. I tried "CBC Music Toronto" and "CBC Radio One Toronto" and both times it pulls CBC radio based out of Barbados. It even does this exact behavior on an Echo Dot, which leads me to believe it is something with how the command is being interpreted on the Amazon side of the equation.
