James V. Monaco would qualify as one of America’s musical treasures had he only penned one of his trove of songs - "You Made Me Love You."

Monaco acquired the affectionate nick-name, "Ragtime Jimmie", when he was still in his teens working all the nightspots in Chicago as a self-taught ragtime piano player.


From there he moved on to New York saloons and Coney Island. Born in 1885, he published his first song in 1911, and in 1927 one of his songs, "Dirty Hands, Dirty Face", was the first song heard sung on film by the great Al Jolson in "The Jazz Singer".





Ragtime Jimmie went on to write songs for a host of Hollywood stars, including Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, Mary Martin, Judy Garland, and Betty Grable.  When he died in 1945 those stars and a host of others gathered to call him one of the most beloved men in the industry.


James V. Monaco was elected to the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame in 1945.
