I'm not a noob (owner for 10+ years) and am very pro-Sonos and have (what I think is ) a cool feature request - offer BBC iPlayer Radio as another Music Service.
- Listen without having to go via Tune-In (which is pretty poor IMHO).
- Have current radio station/track scroll in Controller.
- Ability to add currently playing track to 'My Music' (previously 'Playlister') - this would be similar to 'Liking' a track in Deezer, Spotify etc.
- Listen again/later within the app - without having to download a show to another device and stream it back into Sonos via something like Google Chromecast Audio.
I suggested this feature 4 years ago and disappointingly I'm still awaiting.
Go on Sonos, improve the user experience by making it easier for people who've invested in Sonos to embrace other great music services out there. The BBC iPlayer Radio service is extremely high-quality (features-wise) and is likely to be around long enough to justify the development time required to get the integration working.

here is info from their website re Sonos and SOUNDS
Can I use a Sonos device with the BBC Sounds and BBC iPlayer Radio apps?
Yes, you can! If you have either a Sonos One, Beam, Playbase, or second generation Play:5 device, you can AirPlay from the BBC Sounds app or BBC iPlayer Radio app on your iPad or iPhone to all your Sonos speakers.
You'll need to have v9 of the Sonos Controller app installed and accept the latest device firmware update within the app.
Sonos One owners also have the option of accessing BBC radio and podcasts using their voice - just say, "Alexa, open the BBC," to get started.
It's not yet possible to use the BBC Sounds and BBC iPlayer Radio apps through Sonos from Android devices.
