TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from New York City!

Today finds me back in my hometown of New York City. It always seems to take a couple of days to acclimate to “The Big Apple.”

People have been saying the city isn’t the same since the Gap opened on St. Marks Place in 1988. Post “gentrification,” I think the greatest change has been walking the streets armed with a state of the art PDS. Many of the buildings remain the same but, wow, my mind is spinning.

It’s nice to feel New York on a Spring Day. It’s less harsh around town since my recent visits. I had a fun dinner with my dad. First I’ve seen the “mad man” since he turned 80. To be honest the last year has been pretty tough and I’ve been very worried. Dad’s response to the severe climate was uncool. It was great to see Kenny smile and talk about horse racing again.

It’s always fun to use my radio “sets” to muse on my road trips too. This week I’m playing records and thinking of New York City apartments. Some I’ve lived in—and a few that I’d call passing memories. A small city tenement is very appealing to my DNA.

Funny, I recently visited my daughter’s pad in Williamsburg. Their “mess” made me feel right at home. Those strange but familiar dwellings of 20th-21st century culture…thinking about them makes me smile.

OK, it’s off to the Governor’s Ball at Randall’s Island! Rock on!
