Echo Alexa goes to KQED when I ask for MPR?

This is new. I was accustomed to listening to MPR (Minnesota Public Radio). I live in St Paul, MN. Now, since the last fundraising, When I say "Alexa play mpr” it Says “Playing KQED”.

Do you know why?

what is kqed?   is it an npr station?   if so, that is the reason for confusion.  you may need to say the specific radio station call letters for mpr.   mpr could be too general now.

KQED is based in San Francisco, and serves Northern CA.

Use the call letters of any station you want.  If you dont know the call letters, use Google to find them.

Go to your Alexa App>Skills  and enable the Classical MPR skill (assuming you want the music station, not the news.)
