I want to play Mi-Soul radio on TuneIn using the Alexa voice command on Sonos One. It’s saying it cannot play TuneIn and I don’t seem to be able to find the correct command or account linkage to make it happen

Self solved! You have to ask by spelling out “M I” Soul TuneIn Station (so saying first letters by sound). Alexa respond “playing ME Soul on TuneIn”.
Oddly, if you ask Alexa to play “ME soul on TuneIn” it doesn’t pick it up.
If you’re a soul/ RnB/ groove/ funk/ funky house lover - then I’ve just opened the door to a lot of fun times with that station!
Ah, the joys of voice recognition. I think Amazon's done a pretty good job, but the english language is pretty complex, and even more so when it comes to naming and the inherent variety to make the names copyright ready 🙂
