About this show

Lyrics & Lyricists presents Mary Cleere Haran in a tribute to composer Harry Warren. The show features songs, film clips and reminiscences by special guest Margaret Whiting, who knew Warren personally. Harry Warren's melodies include classics like "We're In the Money," "I Only Have Eyes For You," "Chatanooga Choo-Choo" and "That's Amore." Between 1935 and 1950 Warren had more songs than anyone else - 42, to be exact - on the hugely popular and influential radio show "Your Hit Parade." Though successful as a "Tin Pan Alley" songwriter, Warren made his mark in movie musicals. Over the course of his career, he wrote music for Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, MGM and Paramount; won three "Oscars" and earned 11 Academy Award nominations; and saw his songs performed by Louis Armstrong, Judy Garland, Glenn Miller and Dean Martin, among others.
