How can you listen to Chris Evans on Virgin Radio?

Virgin Radio is a digital only radio station, meaning it has no FM frequencies, but there are various ways you can tune in to hear Chris Evans on his new breakfast show tomorrow morning from 6.30am.

Chris has made a short video to show some of the different ways to listen to the show, but there are others as well.

In order to make things easier here’s the different ways to tune-in explained in a little more detail:

Digital Radio

If you have a digital radio at home or in your car, you can listen on DAB. You’ll need to have Virgin Radio as one of the pre-sets on the radio. If it isn’t already set as one of the options, you can find it by doing a re-scan of the stations available.

Some digital radio sets have the option to re-scan, while others have an auto-tune option. If you can’t see either of those, you should be able to find one of them by using the menu option.

It’s usually very easy to do, plus the instruction manual will explain it in easy-to-follow-steps.
