TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Back in the Canyon from NYC for one more blast of El Nino 2014. I have to say, the weather is fairly impressive. Warm, clear, and breezy—very nice if you were on holiday. Although this week’s Idelic Hour inspiration has little to do with fair weather, the mix does riff on a holiday.

It’s actually the second week in a row where I’ve found myself meditating on the Jewish high holidays. Although I’m far from a practicing Jew, I do like the concept of a “day of atonement.” OK, I’ll refer to it as a “restart.”

I also like the idea of Yum Kippur. Taking time out to remember those relatives and loved ones who have passed away over the following year is cool. This week’s Idelic Hour is a musical reflection on a number of my favorite musicians who passed away over the last year.

It’s kinda like one of those montages you see on the Grammys, but without the sentimental fade out. After all, we’ll never say goodbye to the sounds of these heavy cats:

Paul Revere Dick, Billy Rath, Johnny Winter, Thomas Erdelyi (aka Tommy Ramone!), Charlie Haden, Bobby Womack, Gerry Goffin, Scott Asheton (aka Rock Action!), Bob Casale (aka Bob 1), Pete Seeger, Phil Everly, Ben Curtis, and Lou Reed.

The Idelic Hit of the Week:
Mr. Twin Sister – Blush
