    On today’s show: Baltimore police shoot and injure a 13-year-old boy with a toy gun that looks like a real gun. Who’s at fault here? What’s the message: Police should not shoot unless they are certain the gun is real? Or – Teenagers shouldn’t point toy guns at police officers? THEN: Trump held a big rally in Costa Mesa, California last night – at least 20 people were arrested and protests turned ugly. Are both Democrats AND Republicans protesting Trump? ALSO: Can Fiorina help Cruz more than John Boehner hurt him? The former House Speaker called the Texas Senator “Lucifer in the flesh”...and said he never worked with a more “miserable son of a b*tch in his life.” And, if Bernie can’t get the nomination – what does Sanders want? PLUS: It’s the final weekend of Jazz Fest. You going or avoiding? Do you enjoy Jazz Fest when it rains or avoid it? AND: Beyonce’ responds to the haters by selling “Boycott Beyonce’” merchandise during her tour. Do you think the Grammy winner with Louisiana roots is a marketing genius...kinda like trump... turning lemons into lemonade?

  4. Scoot Show 310pm, Snapchat Use

    A lawsuit has been filed against a driver and Snapchat because an accident occurred when a young driver was using a Snapchat app to record her speed with her picture. She was traveling 107 mph at the time of the accident. Poll: If Snapchat provides an app that attaches a vehicle’s speed to a photo taken by the driver – should Snapchat be held accountable? On today’s show: It’s the beginning of the second weekend of Jazz Fest! Did you go last weekend? Will you go this weekend...even in the rain, or if the Fairgrounds are sloppy from rain? Do you bring your kids? Is Jazz Fest family-friendly enough? PLUS: When a rock star dies suddenly – there are always questions about drugs. According to authorities – music legend Prince had prescription opioids on him when he died last week at the age of 57. The DEA is now part of the investigation into the death of Prince. Did Prince overdose? Did he die as a result of a lethal combination of prescribed medication? Did he take the medication as prescribed? Was he treated for an overdose on pain medication when his private jet flying back to Minneapolis made an emergency landing in Illinois? There are still more questions than answers and it’s not fair to speculate on what killed Prince. We DO KNOW he had a serious hip problem resulting from his amazing performances on stage. The response to that pain is what is in question. The presence of opioids in Prince’s death feeds a growing national debate about pain medication and drug overdoses. Heroin among every demographic in America is also part of the conversation. Most people have taken pain medication. What was or is your experience like? Do you blame the medication, the doctor or should individuals accept responsibility for the decisions to take too many or take pills too often?
