Listen live either from the Listen Live link on this page (which opens a pop-up player) or download the Tunein app. The stream bit rate has been chosen to give a quality better than many DAB radio stations but minimise the amount of data used. In an hour you'll use less than 30MB which shouldn't make much of a dent in most contracts and isn't so bad on PAYG. The stream is buffered which means that it continues to play for some time even if the signal is lost. Incidentally, it also adds a delay so don't be surprised if timekeeping is a little off!

Issues in Android

Hopefully the issues with some browsers on Android are now rectified.

At Home

Click the Listen Live button above and a pop-up page will open. Press play and streaming should start and then continue while you browse on other pages until you stop play. If this doesn't work on your computer follow the instructions below, though hopefully earlier problems with some browsers are now fixed. If you're listening on Tunein or Reciva you can also listen on several devices apart from your computer.
