TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Believe it or not, I’m still feeling fairly under the weather almost a week after coming down with the flu. Last week, I somehow “mailed in” the Idelic Hour from bed. Although I’m somewhat better, this week in many ways has been just as rough.

But we all know what it’s like to be under the weather and still have to go on stage (so to speak). Those of us neck deep in rock ‘n roll know the “the show must go on!”

As a teen, I remember sneaking backstage (or I should say upstairs) at Max Kansas City. To revive himself, Johnny Thunders had filled the sink up with water and dunked his head in before taking the stage. It’s a technique I later used for my own band and now for this week’s Idelic Hour.


Still sick and shaking it off is what this week’s Idelic Hour is about. The set is a playlist of cool records, some new, most old—a bunch of cuts about being sick and lyrics that attracted me even when I had a headache.

This is also the season for new releases. Check the mix for a couple: Lower Dens, Cloud Nothings, Violens, The Neighbourhood, and Lost In The Trees.

Clear heads and sunny skies on the horizon!
