I'm looking for some French radio (preferably available online) which is good for French language learners. Not necessarily for beginners or learners specifically (though don't mind to get recommendations on these options too), but let's say something like BBC Radio 4 where loads of audio plays are aired. I've tried listening to BFM (Business) radio — but the pace of speech there is too quick for beginners and I'm looking for other options.

Try ARTE RADIO.
If you understand Vengeance à l'albanaise (2mn), it's ok. Try other reportages on this site.
You can try also RMC http://www.rmc.fr/emission-radio/podcasts/
Maybe you can listen more various topic instead of BFM Business :)
Download the free "Radio Francaise" application for iPhone/iPad. It has tons of stations including ones from different regions of France as well as from other francophone regions outside of France. If you want something that is easier to follow then listen to news programs from "France Info" and "RFI Monde". RMC can be more for advanced learners if you listen to their sports programs like Vincent Moscato.
You can also download the iPhone/iPad application for M6 and actually watch and listen to their news programs. It is one of the few stations that you can access from outside of France.
Try tunein.com and search for "French Talk". You will get a few hundreds of French-talking radio stations.
Something else that I found interesting while learning French was to follow dictation for children, like this one: www.ladictee.fr
For radio stations, I particulary like Radio France Internationale, especially the section "apprendre, enseigner la langue française"
You can look for French podcasts on iTUnes - there are loads of them. Some are for French learners.
Still on podcast, you can also have a look here:
I enjoy listening podcasts from this site:
Believe me: they are flipping tough to understand. I can understand 10% at best but I usually listen to them when in the tube or something so if I can get 10%, well, that already helped me improve my listening a tiny bit.
Radio Canada is available online:
In the upper-right corner there is a panel where you can choose one of the three channels to listen to.
BTW Radio Canada has an app for Android (and [I think] iPhone). The app is a bit funky but it gets the job done so you can listen to the radio when you are on the street, in a bus, waiting in line or something.
