As of this afternoon, it seems to be fixed. I got an email from their tech support asking me to try just "Radio Paradise" and it worked like it used to. So I guess they fixed whatever they'd broken.

I did install/enable the RP Alexa skill and if I say "enable Radio Paradise" it works and immediately plays the real RP, but on on my "everywhere group" (six devices/speakers scattered about). However, if I stop playing RP (i.e. Alexa, stop) or switch to another app/source and then go back and say "Alexa, play Radio Paradise" it goes back to playing Radio Paradise FM 105.1. I have tried multiple times to disable/enable the RP Alexa skill but the same scenario plays out every time. 

The good news is I found how top play my true RP through Alexa Android and and Web Alexa app and can get it to play on my "everywhere" group so this will satisfy my RP fix. It's just a bit more of a pain  than speaking "Alexa, play Radio Paradise", especially if I'm on the porch or in the garage and don't have my phone or tablet with me.

Thanks for the reply and thank you even more for bringing RP to our lives. Stay safe and healthy.

As noted below (& elsewhere) this is an issue with TuneIn, who provides the directory for Alexa radio playback.

If you want to complain, support@tunein.com would be the place to do it. Emailing Amazon won't help.

You should be able to use our skill (see post below). If you're still getting the other station, then you are definitely not using our skill.

Like many others asking Alexa to "Play Radio Paradise on Tunein" results in "Radio Paradise Live on Tunein Radio is not available" response.
This is a fairly recent issue, coupled with persistent dropping of the stream (as if it's buffering) right up to the point when it just drops the stream completely and announces "Radio Paradise Live on Tunein Radio is not available" again.
It's completely FUBAR'd my morning alarm routine. The only way I can consistently connect now is by using "Alexa, ask MyTuner Radio to get me Radio Paradise".
Sadly I've yet to find a way to incorporate this into a "routine".
Has anyone discovered a method to resolve this issue yet please?
 

You should be able to use our Alexa skill (unless you're playing to an Echo speaker group, on multiple devices simultaneously).

"Alexa, enable Radio Paradise"
then
"Alexa, play Radio Paradise"

Never mind. It's a Tunein issue.
Have applied the RP app/skill.
Happy bunny again.

Was this so dumb a question that no one has deemed it worthy of an answer......after two years? :-) (I'm a nice.......usually smart guy, honest!)
 

To sync your Echo:  "Alexa, tell Radio Paradise to sync"

Also, if you have Alexa linked to your RP account (In the Alexa app, go to 'Skills & Games -> Radio Paradise -> Settings') then 'Alexa' will show up as one of the 'track' options on our website when you're playing RP on your Echo.

Just click the 'track' button on the player screen, or at the bottom of other pages — or the 'track playlist' option on the opening screen — then select 'Alexa'.

Not much you can do about the random stops.   Just make sure it has a good wifi signal,  and reboot the device occasionally.

Account linking is only needed to rate songs.  There seems to be an issue with it failing to link if you are already logged into the website.  For now you can log out of rp and then request alexa to link the skill.   Should be prompted for your username and password and be able to finish linking your account.

 
I am done trying to get Alexa and RP to play nice together. It's next to impossible to get my Echo to sync with the stream (works 1 in 4 times), and it continues to stop randomly in the middle of songs. It's just too frustrating. Going back to Spotify, which works seamlessly. I will miss RP, though.

Alexa, tell radio paradise to sync — or Alexa, tell radio paradise sync

That's a bit flaky (she sometimes doesn't parse that command very well). 

We'll be adding the ability to sync the web display to Alexa (or any other player) in our next site version, which (hopefully) will be out sometime in Q1 2018.

Love RP using Echo, it's a match made in heaven!!  I just say "Alexa, play radio paradise" and it kicks in.  That is, it did until about a week ago.  I was patient as it's done this before, just stopped working then mysteriously started working again a day or two later.  But after a week of no RP streaming I did some searching on the net to find out the issue, and came across this page.  Found another forum on Amazon that recommended simply unplugging the Echo for a few seconds and then plugging it back in.  Well it sounds simple and it is, and it solved the problem.  Got RP right back and streaming again on my Echo.  If you haven't tried this simple solution give it a go!
