TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Too many people are there / It’s noisy and bright, no one cares / But I’m happy in my rose colored corner / No hurry to go anywhere

People they stop and they stare / Disgusted what really isn’t there / But I’m happy in my rose colored corner / No hurry to go anywhere

The people they keep all their secrets / Awaiting each new break of dawn / I’m daunted by days coming gone

For the first time since I’ve been putting together The Idelic Hour, I missed a Valentine’s Day. My routine for many years is to spend Thursday nights listening to records, surfing online, and compiling and building the show to post on Friday.

Being not the most computer savvy rocker, I’ve figured out how to create and send off the show to TVD in DC, but in all honesty the “bones” of The Idelic Hour have been hacked together weekly by a battle hardened 2010 MacBook.

Simply put, the past month my 2010 Mac just had enough. Thank my lucky stars I now have a replaced the old war-horse with a similar model (fingers crossed). Migrating computers is a breeze for other generations, but I’m not really a techie or “gizmo” guy.

Long story, I believe that I have made it to the other side and this week’s set will show that I’m just happy to be able to share music. Online. Although I hear that soon I’ll be replaced by a computer. (Why, who needs a “tastemaker?”) “My algorithm” will carry on.

Special thanks to Jake at Position Music for the much needed help and support this week.
