Bill, Sonos is looking at this. Weirdly, it works great on my Echo. It works on the Sonos One if I say "Alexa, play Radio Paradise on TuneIn"

Anything you could do would be great! 
 
Weird behavior on the Echo Show:  I have one at my home, and it refuses to play RP for the past week (Alexa:  "Sorry, I'm having trouble accessing your Radio Paradise skill right now").  A friend has one at her house, and RP plays consistently.  We are logged into her Amazon account on both devices.  Possibility of conflicting usage?  I dunno, but it seems like we've both used it concurrently in the past.

I have the same problem on my Sonos One.  Can someone please buy one for Bill so he can figure it out :) 
 
I have escalated this with Sonos. Let’s see if they can fix. It seems possibly to be because there are several stations called Radio Paradise.

Something I've noticed today - We have 2 dot's (named amazon and echo) an echo (named computer) and a show (named Alexa) and if I say, Alexa, play Radio Paradise, it will utilize the skill and play on the show. But, if I say Alexa, play Radio Paradise everywhere (so that we have synced play throughout the house) it will utilize the TuneIn app and play everywhere on it. No matter how I say it, "everywhere" will only work using TuneIn. Not a fan of listening to RP on TuneIn because things start to get spotty after a while with a lot of drop out.

Any ideas on how to fix and get the skill to utilize the everywhere feature?
.

And a second question - does listening on 4 devices at once count towards the "listeners per hour" meter and cost RP more in fees?


 
I'm pretty sure the "everywhere" feature only works on certain apps. I'll check with our Alexa developer to see what can be done with that. 

If you're using the "everywhere" feature on TuneIn, that'll count as just one listener.  If you're playing RP via our skill on multiple devices it will also only count as one listener if they're all linked to the same RP account.

Thank you Bill. When you are down my place is quiet and sad ☺️ I appreciate you time and effort and most of all you station. 
 
I'll see what I can find out about RP + Alexa + Sonos.  Unfortunately I don't have any of their nice hardware to test with. Might have to do something about that.

Same for me.  I got a new Sonos One last week and was excited to start using the RP skill, but so far i have not been able to get it to work.  When I ask Alexa to "play radio paradise" she says there is a problem with that skill.  When i ask her to "start stream on radio  paradise"  I get the welcome but no music

Same for me, I'm afraid. I've just installed the RP skill and while it did play for a few songs, it went silent and has stayed that way ever since. A re-install of the skill had no impact; if I say "Alexa play Radio Paradise", I get "Welcome to Radio Paradise" but no music. If I ask her what's playing, her reply does tie up with what it says on the web browser. So, everything else seems OK - just no music :-(

Got the same problem Alexa says welcome to Radio Paradise then nothing no sound at all tried reinstalling the skill still the same ?
If I ask Alexa what’s playing She responds with the song title even though there’s no sound ?

When I ask her to ask rp what’s playing it correctly reports the current song, corresponding to what’s live on my cell phone during the test. This has been the case for at least 2-3 days now.

 
Very sorry about that. Server glitch while I was away for a couple of days. Should be ok now.
