I wanted to play the radio through my AIY Projects Box and after a lot of experimentation I found a way to do it. I also got some hints from this post I found on the Raspberry Pi forum about playing tracks from Youtube.

This uses VLC to play the radio stream, I initially tried mpd but couldn’t get it to work nicely alongside the voice recognition. I may persevere with mpd / mopidy as it would be great to be able to play anything.
