I can use alarm to start a program...

I can use sleep to end a program...

Is there anyway to "schedule" a start and stop?

What I want to do is to have my kitchen boom turn on the local news radio at 6am and turn itself off at 7:30am every weekday...

Set an alarm for 6 AM playing a playlist that contains the radio station URL and specify that the alarm should run for 90 minutes.

Oh cool...I didn't know you could limit the length of the alarm...

Thanks!

You're lucky - 90 minutes is the upper limit. ;-)
