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.
