Unfortunately TuneIn is the recommended fallback  but  they're not handling RP requests correctly on Alexa at the moment.

One other thing you can try is  " Alexa skip "  if  resume doesn't work.    ( Allows it to play a new file from the start,  which can help on a couple of the earliest models )

I have no issues with any other radio station. If I try playing on tunein I get "Radio Paradise in not available on Tuniein Live". I logged onto my Alexa account to see if I could see anything and noticed that everytime I asked alexa to play RP there was a notification asking me to link my account. I thought maybe this was stopping successful play so I linked my accounts but it still does not work.

Seeing a lot of issues  with Alexa and Alexa on Sonos at the moment.

For  an Amazon Alexa device  it's not playing Radio Paradise,  via Tune In.    Says something about it not being available on Tune In Live.

Does seem to be working via Google Assistant currently.   Could try adding Google Assistant  as the voice service on the Sonos instead of Alexa.
Not availalble in many countries yet though so may not be an option.

I'm using the new Sonos one with Alexa. I specifically bought the One because i listen to RP so much .  I'm growing to hate Alexa... not RP's fault but I'm hoping someone can help.

as of a few weeks ago, I can't even get Alexa to pull up Radio Paradise on TuneIn
.

When i say "alexa, play radio paradise on TuneIn" or "Alexa, tell Tunein to play radio paradise" Alexa announces that "Radio Paradise on TuneIn live isn't available right now" and the Sonos player/app Paradise shows that it is trying to connect to some stream with a logo that says "nonstop" (i'd attach a screenshot of the logo if i could).

is this just my system or is there another station called Radio Paradise that is hijacking this command in alexa/tunein?

Hello,

Anyone else having a problem with the Skill on Amazon Echo / Alexa? I say "Alexa, play Radio Paradise", it says "Welcome to Radio Paradise", then sometimes a song plays briefly, then goes silent, or I hear Bill say something like "Welcome to Radio Paradise" then silence. 

It works if I ask, "Alexa, ask TuneIn to play Radio Paradise."

I've tried disabling, then re-enabling the skill and  re-linking my account, but no luck.

Thanks!

 


 

Do you have them included in a speaker group?  If so, you'll need to use "Alexa, play Radio Paradise on TuneIn".
 
I have the same issue (no group). Just says welcome to radio paradise and then silence

 
I'll bet you're listening in Europe, right?

A server misconfiguration was affecting some European Alexa listeners. I just fixed that. Should be OK now.

Sorry about that!
