TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Me, I’m fresh on your pages / Secret thinker sometimes listening aloud / Life lies dumb on its heroes / Wear your wound with honor, make someone proud / Someone like you should not be allowed / To start any fires

Now your smile is spreading thin / Seems you’re trying not to lose / Since I’m not supposed to win / All you’ve got to do is win…

Last night I cut The Idelic Hour, watched the news, and went to bed with Georgia on my mind. As a cool breeze descends on southern California, we’ll be sad to see our Indian summer go. With prospects of a dark and cold winter ahead of us, today holds a ray of hope and sunshine coming from our television sets.

I started digging through crates of records for this week’s Idelic Hour on Wednesday as I woke up and contemplated the state of our country and especially what Stephen Malkmus calls “Middle America.” Our country’s “split” is sobering. Here are some songs that will help ease the nation toward middle ground

Stay safe, connected, compassionate—and thanks to all for voting!
