I think it has been since the most recent update that I get awaken every night at 10pm by music playing on my phone. Last night it had commercials. The alarms are not on and I don't use Spotify, only Amazon music from library.  Any idea what would cause the media ouput to start by itself?

Sounds like you may have some type of adware/malware. Did it start after you downloaded a particular app? See what happens if you uninstall the last app(s) you installed.

If you cant figure out how to get rid of it, at least put your phone on DND or sleep mode when you go to bed.
