On Christmas Eve, The Jonathan Channel celebrates the birth anniversary of composer Harry Warren. Working primarily in film, Warren composed over 800 songs. In 1933, he provided the soundtrack for the Bubsy Berekley choreographed film, 42 Street

Throughout his career, he received 3 Academy Awards for Best Song: Lullaby of Broadway (1935), You'll Never Know (1943) and On The Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe (1946). Despite his prolific songwriting and critical acclaim, Harry Warren remains one of the least recognized composers in the Great American Songbook.
