Leo Green celebrates Oscar-winning songwriter Sammy Cahn, whose songs include Come Fly With Me, Be My Love, The Tender Trap and Three Coins in the Fountain.

Leo Green celebrates the Oscar winning song writer Sammy Cahn and wonders where his musical gift came from . He was born into an immigrant family from Galicia who had no history of music making where even piano lessons were 'only for girls'. The curios and talented Sammy quickly found his way to Vaudeville Theatres and into the life of a travelling musician but it's his remarkable list of songs like Come Fly With Me, The Tender Trap, My Kind Of Town and Three Coins In The Fountain that make him stand out as one for the greats of the song writing world.
