How to Listen
Online, on mobile & on your smart speaker…
You can listen right here on thebear.live! The station should automatically start when you load the website, but if it doesn’t click the play button on the Bear head logo at the bottom of the screen.
We are listed on TuneIn, with easy access on the TuneIn app, or any of your smart speakers.
Just ask your smart speaker: “play The Bear on TuneIn”.
Please note that some smart speakers may not respond to the above voice command as our station has just been listed – we will update this page further once we have an update – for now you can search for us on the TuneIn app or go to https://tunein.com/radio/The-Bear-s288444/ and ask it to play on your speaker of choice.
We are also listed on the Get Me Radio directory, which you can get on any of the following devices:
- Alexa – say “Alexa, Enable Get Me Radio” to install (or click here). Then just say “Alexa, ask Get Me Radio to play The Bear”
- Google Home – install the Get Me Radio skill (link here). Then just say “Hey Google, talk to Get Me Radio” It will ask you what station you want, so tell it you want to listen to The Bear!
