RadioBDC goes live — online
Smartphone users can also get new Boston.com 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 first 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, the signal will be broadcast via online streaming player on Boston.com, The Boston Globe’s free website, and through mobile apps for smartphones and other devices.
