2LF is an Australian radio station serving the Young region and is part of the Super Radio Network with its sister station Roccy FM. It was opened in February 1938.[1]

The LF stands for Lambing Flats and the station broadcasts on the AM dial on 1350 kilohertz and a power of 5 kilowatts - more than double the power of neighbouring radio stations 2WG Wagga Wagga, 2GN Goulburn, 2PK Parkes, 2CC and 2CA, all of which are rated at 2kW. This may be due to the varying heights of the towns of Young, Cowra and Cootamundra - 2LF's core audience.

Many famous names in Australian broadcasting and television either began their career at 2LF or worked there, including Ken Sutcliffe, Ray Warren and Mike Connors. 2LF only became a 24-hour radio service in the late 1980s. Prior to this it finished broadcasting for the day after the midnight news and resumed with a test broadcast after 5am (which involved playing an album) before officially starting with the national anthem leading into the 5:30am news. When 2LF went "24 hours" it took programming from the co-owned 2WG Wagga Wagga with the on air branding of 2WG/2LF. 2WG itself took overnight satellite music programming from 2UW in Sydney which at that time provided radio network services to about 80 stations nationally.
