Which frequency is Russell Brand's new show on my radio? How can I tune in on DAB, FM and online?

Russell Brand is making a triumphant return to live radio on Sunday, April 2nd 2017 with a new show on Radio X. Brand will be on-air every Sunday from 11am until 1pm for a new, two-hour show accompanied by special guests.

There will even be a podcast to download from Radio X, so if you can't tune in you can catch up with the best bits. Brand's last long-term stint as a radio presenter was on a BBC Radio 2 more than eight years ago. Russell Brand said: Im going to be on Radio X the show will be about joy, unity and togetherness. Sorry for any offence in advance.

Matt Deverson, Radio X Managing Editor, said: Radio X is home to big personalities and were incredibly excited to be welcoming Russell back for his live radio return. Hes a huge talent and his Sunday morning show is going to become a must-listen for fans of his irreverent humour. Hes part of the Radio X family and we cant wait to have him back on air.

You can catch him on Sundays at 11am on 104.9fm in and around London and 97.7fm in Manchester. But, if you have a DAB digital radio, you'll be able to find Radio X on the D1 national digital multiplex, meaning you can listen up and down the country on DAB. If you can see Heart Extra and LBC on your DAB station list (tune to these to check), scroll through to find Radio X, which is towards the end of your DAB station list. Retune your DAB radio if you need to.

Radio X broadcasts on DAB channel frequency 11D in England & Wales; 12A in Scotland and 11D in Northern Ireland, if you want to do a manual tune by frequency.

An easy way to listen to Radio X is over the airwaves using a portable or kitchen DAB radio (see some suggestions of good receivers here), via an in-car DAB stereo or via a cheap DAB handheld - or go for a slightly better one for a reliable signal.

The DAB signal for Radio X covers more than 95 percent of the UK's population and you can see a coverage map here and check your postcode to see if you're covered by national DAB.
