From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Al Lewis was born on April 18, 1901 in New York City, New York. Lewis is thought of mostly as a Tin Pan Alley era lyricist; however, he did write music on occasion as well. Professionally he was most active during the 1920s working into the 1950s. During this time, he most often collaborated with popular songwriters Al Sherman and Abner Silver. Among his most famous songs are "Blueberry Hill" and "You Gotta Be a Football Hero". Lewis died on April 4, 1967 in New York City, New York.

Songwriters On Parade

Between 1931 and 1934, during the last days of Vaudeville, Lewis and several of other hitmakers of the day formed a sensational review called "Songwriters On Parade", performing all across the Eastern seaboard on the Loew's and Keith circuits.
