[Amazon Echo][Radio] Support Alexa Stations (i.e. Artist Radio)

Alexa has two music services, one for specific requests (artists/albums/playlists) and another for "radio" (e.g. artist stations). Amazon and Apple Music support both services, but Spotify only supports the former. 

 

You cannot ask Alexa to play "Madonna Radio" for example. Please add support for this.

This is the only reason why I switched from Spotify premium to Amazon Unlimited. The ability to ask my echo to play the radio using my voice is critical for me.

Not having this feature seems crazy to me :( Also my vote doesn't seem to be registering.
