Thomas -
Your recording of Bob Emery leads me to ask a question: Who is/was the 
longest-working personality in Boston area broadcasting history?  I'm 
thinking it would have to have been Bob Emery (WGI in 1921 or '22, up 
to "Big Brother" in the '60s), but then I think of Carl deSuze, Dave 
Maynard, Bill Marlowe, Gus Saunders and others.  Does anyone have a 
definitive answer?   -Doug
