TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

I’m just a lonesome l.a. cowboy / Hangin’ out, hangin’ on / To your window ledge, callin’ your name / From midnight until dawn / I been smokin’ dope, snortin’ coke / Tryin’ to write a song / Forgettin’ everything I know / ‘Til the next line comes along / Forgettin’ everything I know / ‘Til the next line comes along

For me as a parent of two kids, there comes a time when your “lil one” starts their journey toward his or her own musical taste. Most of us “rocker dads” try to steer the kiddies clear of music that makes us nutz, but…good luck on that.

From my experience, I feel comfortable saying that most kids leave pop music by 12 years old. My Jonah recently spilt pop for hip hop at age 10. Although hip hop radio is very repetitive, we’re happy to be leaving the pop world for hip hop, and to be honest there have been quite a few hip hop charms of late.

Which brings me to this week’s Idelic Hour muse: Lil Das X’s “Old Town Road.” It’s a song that proves there is a little bit of cowboy in many of us. And fuck, why not?! It’s that “cowboy” spirit that makes America cool. Let’s go from California cowboy through to the “golden age” of rock n roll…

Enjoy this week’s Idelic Hour. See ya soon, partner.
