Night Flight's 1988 "Poets of Rock" special is a celebration of some of the greatest songwriters of the era. "Rock and Roll lyrics are the poetry of the masses" Pat Prescott tells us, before giving us a brief history lesson in rock lyricism that includes Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and Lennon. Then we move into the 80s with a look and listen to the lyrics Patti Smith, Tracy Chapman, 10,000 Maniacs and more.
