Al Sherman

Avrum Sherman (September 7, 1897 – September 16, 1973) pen name Al Sherman was an American songwriter active during the Tin Pan Alley era in American music history. Some of his most recognizable song titles include: "You Gotta Be a Football Hero," "Now's the Time to Fall in Love" and "Lindbergh (The Eagle of the U.S.A.)." Sherman is one link in a long chain of family members who were musical.
