It seems Pete Woolery went into music publishing business after his
recording career.
In 1935 he still led his own orchestra in a radio broadcast on New York
AM station WABC (not he WABC of today - an entirely different station),
the year after he married another radio vocalist, WCAU's (Philadelphia)
Helen Barrett. And there's mention of him in Billboard from the early
1940's on as a song plugger for different New York and Philadelphia
publishing companies. See:


Odd information is provided here, where Pete Woolery is said to have
been a pseudonym and a half brother of..Igor Stravinsky!

I find it unlikely that any of Stravinsky's three brothers - the
youngest, Guri, being born in 1884 - could have been a successful young
tenor in the late 1920's.

Good luck with further investigation!
