The meanings are pretty consistent with the English translations.  楽しい means fun and enjoyable, 嬉しい means happy glad.

They are both reflect positive emotions, so are similar in meaning, but 嬉しい is the positive emotion based on the results of something happening, while 楽しい is the positive feeling you get when your are doing something.

It would be great if you showed how you pronounce it too, instead of just audio :)

Hmm, only if spoken differently (saw/heard a lot of examples here), otherwise the kana should suffice ??
