Gold - DAB Listen

There are many great reasons why you should tune in to Gold with a Digital Radio or on AM. Here are just a few...

You can listen to Gold via digital DAB radio; you may need to retune your digital radio to receive the station.

Gold is only be available on DAB+ across London, if you recently bought a DAB radio with the DAB+ feature this should not affect you being able to listen to The Greatest Hits of All Time, but if your DAB radio is an older version (without DAB+) you may not be able to hear Gold anymore and you will have to obtain a radio with this feature. If you are unsure, look out for the digital tick.

Digital Radios mean interference free listening to live radio stations. There's no hiss, crackle, or pop, no fading, no overlap.
