MidMorning With Aundrea
Venerable anchor-person Aundrea Self’s daily talk show is your best bet for some “edutainment” before the “Price Is Right” and the “Young and The Restless.” Before you head to Genoa City to see what Victor and Nikki are getting into (probably the same stuff they have been getting into since the late 70s — remember when Nikki was a stripper?) tune in and get some info on the topic (s) dujour. Self packs a lot into a 30 minute episode, so be prepared. She has covered everything from gun control to pet grooming to Columbus teachers to cooking to investing to gardening to politics, and that was just one episode.

World War Z
Based on the book by zombie expert Max Brooks, World War Z is the latest in series in the Summer of The Apocalypse (“Man Of Steel,” “This Is The End” and the upcoming “Pacific Rim”), WWZ starts with a collage of current newscasts and ends with rabies infected people (zombies) destroying everything in their path. These are not the slow-moving drooling zombies Scooby and the gang used to chase. No, these zombies are fast and meaner than all get out.

Sounds Of Summer
When I was a child, Swing Shift singer Johnny Coleman was in a band with Paul Dickens and some other guys and they recorded a single of “I Fooled Around And Fell In Love.” It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized it was Elvin Bishop’s song on the radio and not Johnny Coleman’s. Catch Swing Shift tonight at the Riverwalk. (Ed.)
