Unfortunately we ran into some limitations, and had to choose between gapless audio or song info.   So song info isn't available visually,  except when listening via TuneIn.  
But you won't have access to favorites with TuneIn.    For that's it's  "Alexa play Radio Paradise on TuneIn"   ( won't work in the uk )



Thank you for letting me know! Hopefully the tech will expand in the near future. Have you asked AI how to get past those limitations?

Next question: How can I/we get Alexa Echo Show to show the name of the musician and title of the song? When I use the Skill - especially when I have my Favorites playing, I can ask Alexa to "Ask Radio Paradise to tell me the name of the artist + song," but it doesn't show anything, just states it. If I'm just listening to the Main Mix without invoking the Skill (Alexa see it as "Live"), I can't get it to tell me the name of the artist + song, so I have to be in Skill mode. Since I listen to RP all day long through Alexa, it would be good to know what the new music is rather than having to use Shazam!

Did I just get lucky?  I created a custom routine called music.  "Alexa, music", which translates also with custom text to "Alexa, play Radio Paradise".  Easy peasy.  It just plays on the speaker I have set up.  But I just tested and showed that a paired speaker also works.  My paired speakers are called Everywhere.  I created a routine, "Alexa, music everywhere".  It then has custom command behind the scene, "Alexa, play Radio Paradise Everywhere".  This then worked on my paired speakers.  Since I like the eclectic mix of RP, I have no problem reserving this routine for RP.  But with slight modifications it seems like it would work for other streams too.

You can add the skill as the last item on a routine and it will start playing.

Not sure if that will work on all speakers.  I think someone said it worked,  but the skill currently can't support speaker groups.   So not sure what Amazon's plans are for that at the moment.

Hi all,

As a UK listener I was disappointed earlier in the year to find that Radio Paradise was no longer available via TuneIn. Since then I've been having to make do with Spotify playlists which in my opinion aren't anywhere near as well curated as RP.

We've since purchased a few Amazon Echo speakers and I'm excited to learn that a Radio Paradise skill exists! I've installed the skill and can get Radio Paradise playing using the "play Radio Paradise" command, but I'm hoping I can do more in terms of automation.

With Spotify, I have a routine configured via Alexa that plays a predefined playlist on all three Echo speakers in the house. It works using the command "Play X Playlist Everywhere." I'd really like to be able to do the same with Radio Paradise but can't seem to figure it out. If I use the skill option in the routine creation wizard, it only lets me choose one speaker on which to play, and if I use the play option, I don't get to choose Radio Paradise as a source.

In an ideal world, I'd want Radio Paradise to play in sync on all speakers at the same time each morning.  Is this possible?

Thanks!
