You can invoke the new mixes like so.

"Alexa play Radio Paradise Mellow Mix  on Tune In"
"Alexa play Radio Paradise Rock Mix on Tune In"
"Alexa play Radio Paradise World Mix on Tune In"

Can leave off "on Tune In"  if you don't have the rp skill installed.

You can add custom streams to tune in but that doesn't seem to support flac for now.

And there are some issues with the RP skill on Sonos.   The best way to use audio commands for now is to use Tune In
"Alexa play radio paradise using tune in"

and If you disable the Radio Paradise skill.
"Alexa play Radio Paradise"  
should have it start on tune in.

Sorry about the outage. Our master stream server went wonky while I was asleep. All better now.

Greetings Bill. I trust all is well. My Sonos has decided that RP is not going to work today. I can stream RP directly on my cell phones and computers, but dear old Sonos is a no go. Did the standard resets, reloads, etc. And I talked to the uncle of one of the Sonos engineers about them, who is a friend of mine.  The uncle is a true believer now in RP, btw. Now I am trying to get him to pry his wallet open. He said they are an engineering company and not a software company. BAH, I say. And he said that they are an awesome data collection firm. All other music  apps are working of course. I persist in nagging. Hope it is a simple reset or just go into no RP withdrawals for a few hours and try again. :-)

I too have issues with SONOS. It's a clunky system for sure. It easily decides to you reset things before it will respond. But at least it dosen't drop much.
What DOES drop a lot is the FLAC selection when playing through my PC. I'm direct wired to a pretty fast and stable internet connection, FLAC should not be a problem but constantly it is.
Lower bit-rates all seem to work fine. But man, I love that FLAC!  I sure wish I could listen to it.
  Any suggestions?

I'm suffering the same problem in Germany (close to Hamburg). 8 Years no remarkable problems - this morning from 7 am - no sound...
Any ideas ?

There is also a SONOS FB page.  Somebody else go over there a post a request with RP page in the link
 
https://www.facebook.com/sonos
 
 
 


 
I posted on the Sonos page. Would be great if Sonos provided some of the features, mainly PSD/skip songs and the ability to select the music type like you can on the android app. Will look at posting on the FB page too.

These days there are so many other devices which compete with Sonos (which replaced my Squeezeboxes long time ago), so considering moving to something new.

Could try using my 'Raspberry Pi 3' for streaming RP. This is a $30 device but needs some programming.

The nice thing about the Sonos is you can link players, but as use I my devices through two multi-room amps, I would just need to take the output from the main player up one floor, which I can easily do which would free the Sonos up to be used in a different zone...
