Biography

Con Conrad was born Conrad K. Dober in New York City. He published his first song, "Down in Dear Old New Orleans", in 1912. Conrad produced the Broadway show The Honeymoon Express, starring Al Jolson, in 1913. By 1918, Conrad was writing and publishing with Henry Waterson and had his first major hit in 1920 with the song Margie. Over the next several years, he would also be responsible for such standards as "Ma, He’s Making Eyes at Me", "You’ve Got to See Your Mama Every Night", "Memory Lane", "Lonesome and Sorry" , "Palesteena" and "Come on Spark Plug".

In 1923 Conrad focused on the stage and wrote the scores for the Broadway shows: The Greenwich Follies, Moonlight, Betty Lee, Kitty’s Kisses and Americana. In 1929 he moved to Hollywood after losing all of his money on unsuccessful shows. There he worked on films such as: Fox Movietone Follies, Palmy Days, The Gay Divorcee and Here’s to Romance.

Conrad received the first Academy Award for Best Song for The Continental in 1934 along with collaborator Herb Magidson. He died four years later in Van Nuys, California.

Conrad was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970.
