How wonderful I think it is that the Nikiski High is performing music from George M. ! I had thought everyone had forgottent he music of George Cohan.

My grandfather, Billy Carola, was a musician, singer, and peformer in the 1930's and married to Helen Cohan, George's daughter.

I grew up singing George M's songs in school and at home.

It does disappoint me to see that George M's last name is spelled incorrectly in the caption. Cohan is spelled with an "a" and not an "e".

Keep up the good work Nikiski High!
