How to automate rain noise in Homepod

Hello everyone. First of all, I know I can ask Siri to “play rain noises”, but I want to automate it. To be simple, at some point in the day, I want to turn off the lights and start playing rain noises for 1-2 hours. Simple, right? Not quite, not exactly. I don’t have an Apple Music subscription and I don’t want to, it’s just a bad service compared to Spotify, which I use with my wife due to the collaborative playlist. So now I’m left with the option to buy a white noise device and plug it into a smart outlet. It looks bad, because Homepod has great sound and all the functions I need, I just can’t automate them. Do you have any other ideas? Anything goes! 1. If I buy an album from the iTunes Store, can I automate it on my homepod or do I really need Apple Music? 2. Is there a way to automate the AirPlay connection (from iPhone to Homepod)? 3. Any other ideas?
