Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from March 14, 2017 Options

Kris Holmes's avatar View Kris Holmes's profile Options

20 years of dusty fingers, frayed cuticles, & upper respiratory infections — from record digging and DJing around the globe — coalesces into a 2-hour journey through Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Latin, Rock & Roll, and all points in between. Your speakers will be head-nodding, toe-tapping & even two-stepping to this vintage 45rpm party in no time. Hear favorite songs you didn't know were your favorites, aural treats & record-world problems from the vinyl side of life.

Tim's pledge is part of his Swag for Life pledging -- Swag for Life being WFMU's renewing, automatic monthly contribution. Min $10 per month, and the best way to support the station.

I'm gonna get my radio sleep, dear people. Kris can lullaby me. This time tomorrow I'll be burning it down at the station.
Avatar Tue. 3/14/17 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

I was wondering what SFL on the pledge stood for hahahaha

G'night, @UM!

Good night Michael, enjoy the station party!!!
Avatar Tue. 3/14/17 10:39pm Jeff Golick:

Swag for Life is so named because we bury you in very cool swag unavailable any other way. There's a hat, baseball tee, etc etc.

Only 2 more pledges qualifying for Kris's monstrously great premium, NEW ORLEANS LOUISIANA BREAKDOWN, will push The Long Way Home across the finish line!

Here is the description of Kris' premium:
"Hands down one of my favorite musical cities, both for the music created there & for buying records. On this mix I will choose 20 of my favorite NOLA 45s from my collection & present them to you. The sounds will range from R&B to Soul, from Cajun to Funk, all guaranteed to make you want to do the second line with an umbrella in your hand. Oh & if you happen to wake up in New Orleans & find a street parade, don’t forget to follow the tuba!"

Pledge 75 clams or more RIGHT NOW and get New Orleans Louisiana Breakdown—and make this night on the Drummer Stream a screaming success!

"Cumbia's all night" is my new favorite phrase in the English slanguage.
Avatar Tue. 3/14/17 11:55pm Jeff Golick:

If we get to the goal -- two premium-sized $75 pledges -- I believe Kris will run a marathon around Marathon before the end of the marathon.
Avatar Tue. 3/14/17 11:55pm Jeff Golick:

...in his new maraathong.

On my salary, I can only afford a micro thong.

This sounds like Lurch on the harpsichord.
Avatar Tue. 3/14/17 11:57pm Doug Schulkind:

If everyone listening just upped their pledge by $10, we would be blubbering fools of joy.

Avatar Tue. 3/14/17 11:59pm Jeff Golick:

Just checked the overall station progress...sitting at 55% with only about a third of the marathon left. Now's as good a time to move that needle...and likely take home a fab prize...
