TVD's Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Dear Santa,

Greetings from Laurel Canyon! I'm sure you have been busy with many requests so I'll make it short. I just wanted to remind you "the teenager" Zoe, wants anything vintage Hermes, "the wife" Susan, those Rick Owens combat boots and Jonah wants a "stick" whatever that means? At two and a half the "little rocker" is just looking forward to your visit? And me, I just want you to grant me a Christmas wish—keep that cool rock n roll coming in 2011!

Enclosed is a copy of this week's Idelic Hour. It's the "my take on a top 40 list." It's a countdown of sorts but really it's a mix of some cool shit for you to listen to on your long journey Friday night.

So godspeed, drive safe and don't eat too many cookies.

THE IDELIC HIT OF THE WEEK: Candi Staton - "I'm Gonna Hold On (To What I Got This Time)"

TVD's 2010 | A few of our favorite things...

In a year of losses. . . my mother, and another close, close friend. . . this track, either on vinyl or digitally in some form, was the most played all year.

Sort of fitting, really.
