WORDBEAT Having just come in from Palm Springs, Host Yvonne de la Vega signs on to WordBeat to host a very interesting show indeed. With music from Ellyn Maybe's RODEO FOR THE SHEEPISH as well as a few choice WordBeat Productions, the show takes off without a hitch. A round between LYRICAL PRINCESS (Chicago)AND YVONNE DE LA VEGA sets the shows dynamic, until Yvonne wins the bout due to the slumber from the PRINCESS's phone line! She is asleep on the other end!!!! A surprise SHAMELESS PLUG from LA POET JIM BOLT who calls into the show seeking DE LA VEGA to book her for the upcoming SILVERLAKE STREET FAIR!!! It's a great show and the poetry is stellar as usual!
