The history

"Broadcast" brand record was introduced in 1927 in the United Kingdom. “Broadcast” and “Broadcast Twelve” Records (launched in 1928) replaced the “Aco Records” label, manufactured by the “Vocalion Gramophone Company”.

"Broadcast" discs were 8-inch (later increased to 9-inch) and "Broadcast Twelve" discs were 10-inch 78rpm gramophone records, but with small labels and a fine groove pitch so they would play as long as regular 10- and 12-inch discs respectively. They ceased production in 1934.
