Apr 1: What's Behind The East Village Explosion?

There is a narrative that goes like this:  "Rent is a rock musical with music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson loosely based on Giacomo Puccini's opera La bohème. It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in New York City's East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS."

We'll explore how perhaps history is repeating itself with What Really Matters NYC source Joe The Plumber.

Plus ask if you have any ideas for a better alarm clock for Hiz Honor.  And last but not least explore why subway delays are now our fault (just gotta love that MTA).

Along with all the other NYC news and the usual insights from Commentator Lorraine and weather, wisdom, and nutrition tips from NYC Weatherdude.

Plus you won't want to miss this pop-culture barometer: at the end of the show we usually play the video of the week's No.1 Radio Song in the USA.  But this week we will play a Reebok background video on Kendrick Lamar - who just released the number one selling album in Australia and the UK.

Remember "If it's Wednesday, it's What Really Matters NYC".
