TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Not much to report from LA on this short week in May. Gloomy mornings usher in June. School is almost out for the kids and it’s hard to believe little Jonah will be a first grader. The family spent a fairly quiet long weekend keeping ourselves busy and well spoiled with anniversary meals.

Today the family is trekking out to Valley Charter School for Jonah’s benefit jogathon. My love and thanks to all my good friends for donating to Jonah’s public school. I am very proud of your generosity and support. Love to my old pal Luca and my daughter Zoe who I miss very, very much.

I’m feeling very grown up at this moment and will spare you my prose. Let’s just say this Idelic Hour is a playlist of love songs. A “mix tape” of love songs is the mother of all Idelic Hours. (Every three or four months I reach for my love songs—Springtime is for lovers!)

Big surprise—these songs are dedicated to my wife Susan who has put up with me for a few more days beyond our ten years. Check it L.A.M.F.
