Alexa will play Scala Radio and Sonos will play Scala Radio *(using the App) - but when I say 'Alexa, play Scala Radio on kitchen" she says "I could not find a station named Scala Radio" !

She will however respond to "Alexa, play Radio 3 on kitchen"

Any idea why? On Tunein withing Sonos Scala is a favourite.

Hi...just browsing these posts and stumbled on this. I was sure that it will play Scala Radio so I've just checked and it responds, no problem - at least on Sonos One (G1). At this location, I don't have other integrated / Amazon Alexa standalone devices so can't comment if this always work on other setups.
I have had the same issue. Amazon say that this is an Alexa Skill which is why it works on the echo.

Strangely you can do just that with Classic FM without issue.
