TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Ever since the riots / All I really wanted / Was a black girlfriend / They don’t play around / They’re hard enough / To keep any man in line / Thinking of my pale white skin / Thinking of her dark and smooth / She against me / (My black girlfriend) My black girlfriend / Black girlfriend

Most of my Idelic Hour shows are made mid-week and finished Thursday late evening in my garage office (in the Canyon of course!) Funny enough, I woke up this morning realizing something was missing! Yep, I spaced on finishing this week’s show—ha!

It’s not the first time I’ve cut (MC’d) in the AM but it has a different vibe for sure, especially in a mix of sounds inspired by darkness. I don’t know about you, but I think this time of year (mid October to January) has the darkest nights. Take it from someone who still often roams at night. ‘Tis the season of darkness.

With this in mind I’m celebrating Halloween by getting “black to it” with a playlist of old and new gothy, gloomy, electronic, punk, and folk. I mean WTF—it’s the Idelic Hour for Halloween!

Join me and the Smalls crew tomorrow at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, grave #33! Rockkkk!

The Idelic Hit of the Week: Leonard Cohen – You Want It Darker

Join us at grave #33 Saturday at sundown
