Synopsis: A serial killer returns 16 years later to the town where he met his demise intent on killing the seven teenagers who were all born on the day of his death.
Carol Channing was born on this day in 1921. While most of the whippersnappers in this generation will either not know who the hell Carol Channing is or think she is just a character from an episode of Family Guy (Up yours, young people!), in actuality Carol is a veteran of stage and screen with multiple Tony Awards and even an Oscar nomination. Of course my love of Ms Channing comes from her iconic appearance as the White Queen in the 1985 Alice in Wonderland TV movie.

While most people associate the dearly departed songstress Etta James with her signature tune “At Last”, I have always been partial to her cover of this Louis Prima number that was first popularized in the 1940s by Fran Warren. “A Sunday Kind of Love” has been recorded by a laundry list of great performers from Ella Fitzgerald to Reba McEntire but to me it belongs to Etta James.
