I like to wake up to the radio - for example the Today programme, which is on BBC Radio 4 from 6am to 9am every day. Alexa lacks the ability to wake up to the radio. I have seen various clunky workarounds, for example recording an Alexa command as an alarm on a cellphone. That is frankly ridiculous for a feature that should be simple to add to Alexa. Please can this be added?

I have mentioned this to various friends who have Alexa and they all think it is an important missing feature.

Good news! There’s now an Alexa Skill that allows you to set alarms and timers that play music. It’s called ClockRadio.

It would be good if the user could select a specific Skill to start as their alarm. That way, if a specific radio station has their own Alexa Skill, that specific radio station's Skill could be used.
