Rap

While she’s too embarrassed to admit it, Lisa is chosen by a magazine as the Cutest Reporter in New York. Turning to Jimmy, she hopes to find some support for turning down the award. However, once Jimmy proudly announces Lisa’s secret to the staff, Beth and Catherine are immediately jealous. Meanwhile, a minor adjustment in his car stereo causes Bill to reconsider his love of rap music. And as Lisa fails to find any encouragement for her stance against the award, Bill decides to go public with his newfound hatred for rap. After listening to the editorial Matthew has written, Dave refuses to allow Bill to read it on the air. Appealing to their boss for help, Bill learns that Jimmy owns the company that distributes much of the music he now deplores. Meanwhile, Jimmy insists that Lisa accept the award for all the recognition it will bring to the station. And though agreeing to the photo shoot, she won’t go through with it unless Beth and Catherine are invited, too. While hoping her display of solidarity will inspire them to join her in saying no, Lisa is taken aback when Beth and Catherine wholeheartedly accept. Meanwhile, when Dave and Jimmy invite rap music star Chuck D to the station, Bill blames the entire anti-rap stance in the editorial on Matthew. However, Bill’s efforts to court the famous pop music star backfire when Chuck D finds he has much more in common with Matthew. Finally, after getting into the photo shoot, Lisa suddenly finds herself being cut out of the fun by her two colleagues. © 1995 Brillstein-Grey Communications. All Rights Reserved.
