Big Brother Bob Emery's career began on the late lamented 1XE/WGI 
(greater Boston's pioneering radio station) in mid-1921.  He created 
the Big Brother Club there in early 1924, and later in the year, took 
it to WEEI, where it stayed for the next 6 or so years.  He was 
briefly on the Yankee Network, but ultimately, he got a network gig 
in New York circa 1933, and later was on WOR for a few years.  So 
yes, his radio career lasted several decades, before he ended up on 
TV with Dumont and then finally returned to Boston and WBZ-TV.
