    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?

    On today’s show: Donald Trump swept the Northeastern primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania & Rhode Island, and Hillary won all but 1. Trump says he considers himself the “presumptive nominee.” Is he? Cruz says the Donald can’t get to 1,237; can’t beat Hillary Clinton and can’t bring the party together, because at least half of the Republican party still does not want him to be the nominee. Who’s right? Analysts say statistically its virtually impossible for Bernie Sanders to be the democratic nominee. Should Sanders continue on with is campaign, endorse Hillary Clinton and fight for his ideas rather than the candidacy, or consider running as a 3rd party? (Which he says he won’t do.) And, the big controversy this morning – Trump says all Hillary Clinton has is “the woman card.” Is that a smart move? Is that sexist? Many party leaders and analysts says that was the wrong move for a candidate who doesn’t poll well with women...even women in his own party...and it’s the wrong strategy for a party that hasn’t performed well with women voters since the 80’s. Call in and give your take on last night’s primaries, what do the Trump & Clinton victories mean? Is it time for both parties to unite around one candidate and focus on winning the White House? PLUS: if the GOP uses a brokered convention and the Democrats use the super delegates to nominate a candidate that did not get the majority of votes…then why did we have primaries to begin with?
