Default Alexa and WVLG

Has anyone had success asking Alexa to play our Villages radio station? Hubby needs to check for softball delays/cancellations and thought it would be easy for him to just ask Alexa to play. However, I can't seem to find a formula (call letters, frequency, etc) for Alexa to find it.

My Alexa isn't very smart either. We argue continually.

Step 1 - “Alexa open myTuner Radio”

Step 2 - “Play WVLG”).

Step 1 - SAY >> “Alexa, open myTuner Radio”

Alexa should acknowledge asking for the radio station you want to listen to.

Step 2 - SAY >> “Play WVLG”).

Mine did too until I went into the Alexa app menu and clicked on Skills & Games. From there choose the Music & Audio category, scroll down to myTuner Radio, click and you're good to go.

I'll be a son of a gun. You're the man South Of The Border. Thank's. It worked. Another Miracle.

I just got a T.V. that can be controlled by Alexa, wish me luck.
