TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

There is an expression, “what you don’t know can’t hurt ya.” Taken in the wrong context it’s a pretty fucking stupid and naive concept.

All said, when it comes to music, I really don’t need to know everything. I adore nothing more than a great hour of “cool shit” that I’ve never heard. A rare groove session is just as enjoyable as a playlist of my all time favorite songs.

I choose to chew my burgers rare. Dig it, I love that rare bird. Anything great and obscure is cool. I’m always surfing the web, on the hunt for those rare grooves. Courtesy of a handful of reliable bloggers such as DJ Diddy Wah, Larry 16 Funky Corners, and The Aquarian Drunkard, I’ve scored quite a stash of great left field gems.

This week it felt like a nice time to bust out a mix of old soul records. The less you know, the more you may enjoy. So, click play..
