Here’s How to Tune in to West Wolds Radio

You can listen:

  • on DAB+ (coming soon)
  • on the website
  • via our free smartphone apps
  • on Smart Speakers

Tune in on DAB+

We will soon be broadcasting on the York DAB+ multiplex using the latest DAB+ technology.

You’ll be able to find us listed in your station list by our name. Look for either…

  • West Wolds Radio
  • West Wolds

Depending on your radio you might need to do a ‘rescan’ to find us the first time.

Whilst some older DAB digital radios might only receive DAB stations, the majority of newer devices can receive DAB+ stations as well as DAB, and there are lots of DAB/DAB+ radios available which will give you access to DAB and DAB+ stations..

To receive DAB+ stations you must have a DAB+ enabled radio. The simplest way to be sure, is too look for the Digital Radio Tick Mark on the radio or its packaging. All radios that bear that Tick Mark are able to receive FM, DAB and DAB+ stations.

If you are buying a new digital radio, look for the Digital Radio Tick Mark as this means the radio is DAB+ enabled and will receive the available DAB, DAB+ and FM radio stations. If the product does not have the Tick Mark, then read the product description carefully and check that it specifies DAB+. 

Mobile Apps

We will soon be relaunching our brand new mobile apps. In our mobile apps you can listen live to West Wolds Radio, and you can access the latest news, weather and listen again to your favourite shows from the past 90 days (with a free West Wolds Radio account).

The iOS app is available from the Apple App Store

The Android App is available from the Google Play Store

Smart Speakers

You can listen live on most smart speakers.

For Amazon Echo or Alexa devices you will need to enable our skill which you do either by asking Alexa to “Enable West Wolds Radio” or you can enable it from your Amazon account, make sure you log into the same Amazon account that your speaker is attached to.

Then start listening by saying….

“Alexa, Play West Wolds Radio” or “Alexa, Start West Wolds Radio”

For Google Smart speakers simply say….

“Talk to West Wolds Radio” or “Ask West Wolds Radio to play”

Other Ways to Listen

We aim to support as many platforms as possible to make it easy for you to listen to West Wolds Radio on whatever device you use.

You can also tune in via GetMeRadio which is available online, via their mobile apps, on Smart Speaker or Smart TVs like Roku.

So what about FM?

OFCOM are no longer issuing any more FM licences so we are unable to get an FM frequency. We are excited to announce our venture into DAB+ meaning car listeners and people who own a DAB+ radio will be able to tune-in without the need for an internet connection.
