We're proud to have Harry Warren as the first "Featured Italian."  Having written over 800 songs and nominated

for 11 Academy Awards for Best Song, and the major hits he's written, Mr. Warren could be considered

a rock star today.   He was overshadowed by the popularity of other songwriters (Irving Berlin, Rodgers

and Hammerstein) and didn't gain the recognition he surely deserved.
