The uses pyradios from PyPi and that is instaled from the manifest.yml

How to test Radio
Play your favorite radiostation by or use one of these examples
hey mycroft - play radio BBC Radio 1" hey mycroft - play radio KEXP
If Mycroft starts playing everything works as expeted - if not - it could be that you dind say a name of a radio that he could parse or find. It is diffucult to speak many radio names as they are not written funny like “Radio4” and mycroft will hear that as “Radio 4”. I have problem getting danish radio “DR P1” as he mostly hear something like “Dear Are Pee One”.
But you can use Mycroft-cli and write the name… Ideas for how to “translate” better between radio station names and spoken words are most welcome.
I think enhancing with user configured programs is soem way to work around this problem.
adding posibility to
Hey mycroft - play radio program 1
and have a setting on home for Program 1 to 5 could make the skill more usefull.
Feedback and ideas for making skill better please through Issues on GitHub, or via Mycroft Chat or here as reply on this thread.
You are also welcome to fork change and make Pull Requessts.
The idea for this skills comes from @StuartIanNaylor in this topic
enjoy and happy mycrofting
