RadioBDC is a commercial alternative rock music internet radio station based in Boston, Massachusetts. It is owned by The Boston Globe and operates as a part of its Boston.com website.

History[edit]

Shortly before Phoenix Media/Communications Group sold WFNX to Clear Channel Communications, boston.com hired longtime WFNX staffers Henry Santoro, Julie Kramer, Adam 12 and Paul Driscoll to DJ their new internet radio station, RadioBDC.[1][2] Boston.com created RadioBDC to provide a soundtrack for their website visitors.[3] The letters BDC in RadioBDC Stand for "Boston Dot Com."

RadioBDC officially launched on August 13, 2012 at noon EST. The first song they played was "I Want My City Back" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, which was chosen in a poll by Boston.com readers after 3,700 votes. Dicky Barrett, the frontman for The Bosstones was on the phone with the staff for the launch.[4]
