Once you get music playing from Sirius can you ask Alexa to change stations to a given station..like 80's on 8?

Yes. The command structure is:

Alexa, put on (station name) on/from SiriusXM in the (room name)
Alexa, play (station name) on/from SiriusXM in the (room name)
Alexa, put on channel (channel 😵 on/from SiriusXM in the (room name)
Alexa, play channel (channel 😵 on/from SiriusXM in the (room name)

Thanks..I swear Ive tried that but I will make sure tonight!
Sometimes it can get confused, and sometimes it will not need the "on/from SiriusXM". I noticed Watercolors will not play if you say "on/from SiriusXM", but will if you do not. If you run into these things, submit a diagnostic and post the reference number here with a description of the command so the beta team at Sonos/Amazon can fix them.
