February 21, 2011 06:25 PM PST
Dear Poetry Podcast TV Friends. This is John Rhodes director of the San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV Show. Due to the high expense of running this site here at http://mysticbabylon.podomatic,com , please shift to watching this to either http://sanfranciscopoetry.blip.tv or in the near future to http://mysticbabylon.blip.tv. http://mysticbabylon.blip.tv will eventually have all my old podcasts on it possibly with photoslide shows added, but look for the http://sanfranciscopoetry.blip.tv as being the main site. Also if you would like to view these videos on the Roku box or Boxee box, they are available there on the blip.tv ap on your TV, if you search there for the title San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV. For a full listing of my sites, visit http://rhodespoetry.com. I still have to update the listing there but that is where I will put my list. Also. please visit archive.org by clicking on the image in this sites sidebar to see videos not in my podcasts, of long poetry festivals and events. Thank-you for your patience and please keep watching. This site will be downgraded in April, so be prepared for the change.Mystic Babylon Open Mic Poetry Podcast No. 52 : A Repost

Hello! This is Mystic Babylon broadcasting from near Haight Street with the best of San Francisco poetry. Today we have some poetry from two other poets besides me. First I have some poetry from a poet who asked me a long time ago to record some of her works named Lenore Weiss. She gave me a disk of what she called cell-phone poetry and I extracted one small snippet from that recording.

Hello again, This is Mystic Babylon Open Mike Poetry Podcast broadcasting from near the Haight in San Francisco. Today we are having two poets besides me. They are James Frame and J.R. Jimmy Hammond. James Frame grew up in Sonoma California, lived in San Francisco most of his adult life, and was a Combat Medic in the Vietnam War. He was influenced by the beat poets, and Robinson Jeffers as a young man. He remembers reading in open mikes way back in the 70’s, in North Beach and in the Haight at the “Blue Unicorn”. The 70’s doesn’t sound that far back, but I guess to this generation it is.

This is Mystic Babylon's 3rd open mike poetry recording from San Francisco in the Haight. It is a mixed bag of poetry from the Bay Area this time. Some of it is from someone whose alias is Dr. Concrescence, who reads in the Fillmore district, known mainly for its music, and also I returned to Berkeley to get one poet from there named David Gollub. The web site associated with him is http://www.angelfire.com/poetry/wordbeat/ . I hope you enjoy this open mic poetry. It takes a lot of work to get it. I bought some new sound equipment so hopefully my sound will be improving once I tweak it. I, John R., posted the cover of my book above. It has 12 illustrated poems in it similar to the cover and is 8x11. The photo above is David Gollub.
