Question: are you actualy listening to BBC radio York (Broadcast from Botham A19) currentl on is Joanita Musisi OR are you listening to Greatest hits Radio (York and north Yorkshire) Alexa referes to this as Radio York Tune in.
This is also known as Minster FM. Curently this is Simon Mayo who used to work for radio !.

These are two totlay difrent radio stations. Having spent ages on the phone with Amazon we could not figure it out. Can you? If you try it now and hear Simon Mayo then that is not BBC radio York. I have just set an alarm for 5:05pm and I am listening to Steve wonder. Not Joanita Musisi playing inexcess.

Hit the plus icon to create a new Routine.
Tap Schedule
Choose frequency
Tap Add action. No Customised in list. Taped Music instead

Enter  BBC Radio York
Select Tune in as provider

https://www.the-ambient.com/how-to/how-to-use-alexa-alarm-clock-bedtime-music-467
This says you must choose tunein for radio

Now to test it
When you test it Alexa says ďI could not find a station called BBC radio York on Tunein.
Leaving this blank Alexa says canít find...


However, If I simply say Alexa play BBC radio York, I donít have a problem.
And by the way, phoned amazon about this before. I was talked through the whole process. Even Amazon could not understand why this was happening.

This is a Routine and it works for all BBC stations. You need to follow every step. Note that it takes around 45 seconds before the station plays.

At the risk of repeating myself, you need to create a ROUTINE not an ALARM. Read the link I sent you - itís all explained there. Tap on the More menu and select Routines.
