My PD at WNEW-AM, Quincy McCoy--with whom I shared an office--was fond of quoting Gil Scott-Heron's The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. One day in June of 1988, I couldn't get it out of my head...until I got it out on my piano.
They Ain't Televisin' The Revolution!

 "Sonnet For A Stadium" was written on 19 November 1988, as my sisters and I travelled past Shea Stadium on the Grand Central Parkway, on our way back to New Jersey from Long Island.
