How To Listen To The Toon
Retuning Your DAB Radio
Most modern DAB radios will find ‘The Toon’ but if it doesn’t, how do I retune my DAB digital radio so I can listen?
Most digital radios come with an ‘Auto-Tune’ or ‘Auto-Scan’ button that you can press to retune your radio. If your digital radio doesn’t have this button, don’t worry, you can still retune your radio by pressing the ‘menu’ button and scrolling through the options until you find ‘Auto-Tune’ or ‘Auto-Scan’. Once you have found it, simply select this option. After retuning your radio, any new stations found will be added to the list on the display. You can easily scroll through the display to find
the stations available to you. This process should only take a few minutes.
What if Retuning Doesn’t Work?
If retuning your digital radio doesn’t work or the new stations cannot be found, you may need to perform a ‘Full-Scan’. This can be done by either pressing and holding down the ‘Auto-Tune’ or ‘Auto-Scan’ button until a ‘Full-Scan’ begins or by pressing the ‘menu’ button and scrolling through the options until you find ‘Full-Scan’ or a similar option.
For Amazon’s Alexa speakers – say ‘Alexa enable the skill,’ when Alexa asks what skill, you say ‘The Toon Radio.’ Then all you need to do is say ‘Alexa Play The Toon Radio’ everytime you want to listen.
For Google speakers – go to your Google Home application. Once you’re in, kindly select the “account” option located at the top right of the screen and ensure that you’re logged in.
Next, please click on the “Assistant settings” tab and proceed to scroll down to “all settings”. After that, kindly select “explore” and search for The Toon Radio.
Upon successful installation of the App on your device, please proceed to launch it and select “Search By Name”. Following
this, kindly input ‘The Toon’ and click on the play button to start streaming.
If you register on the app, you can save The Toon as a favourite so it’s there for you as soon as you open the app.
