Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley). But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance.

This week's show: "Well, this one was inspired by Mr. Weather Dave Aiken. He was one of the people who helped this show become a reality in November of last year. He told me, 'Look, it's the end of the. Kids are going back to school so. So, let's go to the beach. Now, I LOVE General Johnson, and I LOVE Chairman of the Board. But to find songs about the ocean and not go through Myrtle Beach was a chore.

I bought an album called 'Aint Misbehavin''' 10 or 15 years ago, and it has at least 10 different version of of "Ain't Misbehavin''' -- from Billie Holiday to Fats Waller.
