One of the stations we listen to on Sonos had been available on Radionomy and Simple Radio. Unfortunately, the stream no longer works on Radionomy and Sonos does not support the Simple Radio stream. Is there any chance Sonos will include Simple Radio as one of their music services in the near future?

Simple Radio works fine on Sonos as an Alexa skill. If you don’t have a Sonos Beam or One, get an Echo Dot while they’re still dirt cheap, and enable the Sonos Alexa skill.

So it sounds like you can access Simple Radio if you have an Alexa-enabled Sonos device, OR you can stream from any Echo device with Alexa into Sonos, is that correct?
According to the Sonos doc, the supported music services need to be available on both Sonos and Alexa:

Which music services can I use with Alexa?
Music services need to be added to both Sonos and the Alexa app. The following services are currently supported:

Amazon Music*
Spotify
TuneIn Radio
Deezer
Pandora (Not available in the UK, Canada, or Australia)
iHeartRadio (Not available in the UK or Canada)
SiriusXM (Not available in the UK or Australia)
Just tested. Simple Radio works fine on the Sonos One, but asking an Echo to play it “in the office” (Play:1 pair) doesn’t work. So, you’ll need Sonos One or Beam.
