I'll bet Dave C will get you squared away, if not... I'll help ya out, please keep the group informed.
I know Dave C's feeling on this, through the years programmers of "Linux" and it's programs seem to change their flags with no rhyme or reason.
They first broke some of my scripts by deciding that the play program no longer needed the -V flag (volume) so the people using my scripts no longer had control of the scripts volume.

Thank you Dave & Dave.
@Dave C. when you have the chance if you can let me know what my options are for getting it to work, or for further diagnostics, I would appreciate it.
@Dave Parks: to your point I decided to try it another way, interesting results...
repeater@stn3671:~$ play /home/irlp/features/speaktime/audio/the_time_is.wav

So, "play" works but "aplay" doesn't. Even though "play" just calls "aplay". Hmmm.

This whole issue was discussed a while ago, and it all pertains to the
use of the sox program, specifically two flags that are deprecated.
I made updates to the systems that I build, but since I am not the
writer of the original scripts, I was not able to update them.
The problems extend to EchoIRLP as well - same issue - sox is using
arguments that are no longer supported.
I am not in a place that I can pull up the details, sorry.
