Tuning in on a Smart speaker


'Smart speakers' are speakers you talk to!  Here's how to buy one.

If you use the Alexa 'smart speaker', just say 'Play Boom Radio'.

If she does not oblige, do try again, speaking the instruction carefully. If that still fails, try the command 'Alexa, enable Boom Radio'.

No joy? Go to the Alexa app on your phone or tablet, click on 'skills' and search for the Boom Radio UK app. Once that's installed, simply press 'enable'. Then try again: 'Alexa - play Boom Radio'.

Alternatively, log onto your Amazon page, and search for 'Boom Radio skill'. Click on it and press 'enable'. Then try again: 'Alexa - play Boom Radio'.


For a Google 'smart speaker', just say 'OK Google, play Boom Radio'. Or try 'Hey Google, play Boom Radio on Tune-In'.

If, on Google, you hear an announcement saying you won't hear us from June, just make sure you use the instructions above and you should be fine!


To hear our sister station Boom Light, simply follow the above but say 'Boom Light'.  You may need to speak very clearly before the message is understood! If it fails, just try again. Persistence pays!













How to listen

You can hear us on DAB across the UK.

And you can hear us online in high quality on your phone, laptop, PC or tablet. 

On your smart speaker, it's 'Alexa - Play Boom Radio' or 'Hey Google - Talk to Boom Radio'.
