A RequiredFieldValidator for your list would look something like this-

<asp:RequiredFieldValidator runat="server" ErrorMessage="You must select at least one option!!!" ID="RBL_mode_validator" ControlToValidate="RBL_mode">
                </asp:RequiredFieldValidator>

This is a simple validator that will assume a starting value for the radiobuttonlist is null and requires that the value of the list changes in order for it to be valid. So this will work well for entering records for the first time, but not as well if you are editing records which already have a value (in which case you will need to do a custom validator with code to check that an option has been selected in the list).
