When Bart swallows a hazardous prize from a cereal box and winds up in the hospital, Lisa finds out her jazz idol Bleeding Gums Murphy has a room of his own there. Sadly, this turns out to be his deathbed, and not only is she upset about him dying, but she realizes that nobody will ever remember him for his music, unless she does something about it. Written by
