I'm guessing the early 1920s. My memory may be deceiving me, but I could swear I've seen early radio studios (with the thick drapery and
chandeliers) that had two of the old cylindrical microphones - one on a stand and the other against the horn area of an internal-horn talking machine.
NBC did remotes on their very first broadcast in November of 1926, which means there had to be a way of mixing and muting separate incoming signals. But if I recall correctly, even that dates back to around 1924 with WEAF, and probably before then.
