May 11, 1922: 2LO London begins broadcasting

2LO was the second radio station to regularly broadcast in the United Kingdom (the first was 2MT). It began broadcasting on May 11, 1922, for one hour a day from the seventh floor of Marconi House in London’s Strand.

On November 14, 1922 the station was transferred to the new British Broadcasting Company which in 1923 took up the nearby Savoy Hill for its broadcasting studios.

On March 9, 1930 2LO was replaced by the BBC Regional Programme and the BBC National Programme.
