My real name is Kenneth

My parents never called me Kennth. I have always been Mark. In official capacity I am called Kenneth. Like today where my employer is getting all my accounts screwed up. And they keep saying WhatsThe frequency.

This song is about an incident that took place on October 4, 1986, when the CBS news anchor Dan Rather was attacked on a New York City sidewalk by a crazed man yelling “Kenneth, what is the frequency.” The man turned out to be William Tager, who was caught after he killed a stagehand outside of the Today show studios on August 31, 1994. Tager, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison, said he was convinced the media was beaming signals into his head, and he was on a mission to determine their frequencies.
