RadioBDC goes live — online

Smartphone users can also get new station via apps

It sure looks like a traditional radio station studio, with boom microphones, an audio mixing board, even a glowing “On Air” sign in the corner.

But when RadioBDC goes live at noon on Monday, the station will not broadcast from a radio tower and will not need a license from the Federal Communications Commission. Instead, it will air via an online streaming player on, The Boston Globe’s free website, and through mobile apps for Apple Inc.’s iPhone and devices running Google Inc.’s Android operating system.
