This Friday's episode of Expats Radio makes way for the amazingly gifted poet, spoken word artist, and activist Yvonne de la Vega. Yvonne is a fixture on the Los Angeles poetry scene, during which time she has recorded spoken word and music, including tracks produced by Ray Manzarek of The Doors, and a feature on the track "Jump Street" with Herb Alpert, (A&M Records) a Spoken Word and hip hop single that showcases her poetry with Alpert's music.

On August 24th, by proclamation of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Yvonne was nominated for the first ever "Poet Laureate" of the City of Los Angeles. Along with the November release of her first book, "Tomorrow Yvonne: Poetry & Prose for Suicidal Egotists" (Punk Hostage Press), 2012 is becoming a year of public acclaim.

Yvonne joins Bill Friday for 45 minutes of where she's been, and a look forward to where she's headed, including her role in the Occupy Movement of Los Angeles.
