TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

I was sleeping, gently napping when I heard the phone / Who is on the other end talking, am I even home? / Did you see what she did to him, did you hear what they said? / Just a New York conversation rattling in my head

Ooh my, and what shall we wear / ooh my, and who really cares?

Just a New York conversation, gossip all of the time / “Did you hear who did what to whom?” / happens all the time / Who has touched and who has dabbled hear in the city of shows / Openings, closings, badrap party – everybody knows

Ooh, how sad and why do we call / ooh I’m glad to hear from you all

I am calling, yes I am calling just to speak to you / For I know this night will kill me, if I can’t be with you / If I can’t be with you

OK, I HAVE A PLAN. I’m gonna get a “vacci,” get a haircut, my teeth cleaned and eyes checked. Then I’m gonna buy me a plane ticket to visit my hometown, New York City. I’m gonna see my family, maybe dig up a few old friends, and for a few hot summer days walk the streets. Same streets I walked as a kid.

I might not run into anyone I know, but I’ll walk by where CBGBs and Max’s Kansas City once stood and smile about the night I fell in love with rock ‘n’ roll. I’ll stroll through Central Park, sit at the Bethesda Fountain and watch the world pass by, tell stories of hippies, weed deals, and frisbee. I’ll even toss the “disk” with my 12 year old.

And there will be a moment where some old dude will walk by and nod to say, “Yeah man, we were there.”

For this week the sounds of NYC are in my ears. Rock on.
