    I'm confused by your question. Library Radio just means from a particular library. It is the default that playing a random song will start a Library Radio. You can not specifically tell Alexa what to play, that's the idea behind the radio feature, it's just taken out of your library. You can skip to the "next" song.

    What are you asking exactly? Alexa will try to match your request with PMS and will then playback whatever PMS returns. Remember, right now you can only specify an artist, album, or track. You cannot combine them and ask for a specific track from a specific artist.
