Fantastic, Jarro❗️ Thank you❣️ The "ask radio paradise to change the channel..." worked. 

And - ha! - what didn't work was "play my favorites mix using radio paradise." The response I received was "Your rating is 7." I would love to know what Alexa's algorithms think that means. 

Alexa this!

It's all still there.   Main headache with this stuff is if you look at what alexa heard in the alexa app it's often way off from what was said.   
Sometimes reversing phrases will work better.

eg.
Alexa play my favorites mix using radio paradise  
vs
Alexa ask radio paradise to play my favorites mix

Also play is a very busy word.  Linked to a lot of first party skills.  
Sometimes requesting channel instead works better.

Alexa ask radio paradise to change the channel to my favorites.  

Alexa is all very clunky.  But I expect it to be unrecognizable in a few years.

Does anyone know what happened to the Alexa skills or routines that allowed the playing of the other channels? Not only is the "Alexa, ask Radio Paradise what's playing" no longer working - which isn't a problem, because TuneIn shows it now (fabulous!) - but no skills or routines work any more, other than getting Alexa to play the Main Mix (Live). For many months I was able to toggle to My Favorites whenever I pleased, but the ability disappeared a couple weeks ago. I was also able to skip - play the next song - but can't do that anymore. Help!

Like the previous song, like, etc...





Unfortunately yes.   The limitation is due to them not supporting gapless playback.  We worked around that, but the tradeoff is not being able to display the current song info.

Due to limitations with the Alexa service we can't update the info on track changes.
Best we could do for the devices with screens is display a generic image and the channel info.

This is also why "Alexa,  what's playing"  won't give an answer.   To get the current song info you need to include the skill name.
"Alexa,  ask Radio Paradise what's playing"
