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.

Yeah, well my show was on until 1 and now I'm "working".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/16/17 10:14pm JtotheK:

my night schedule has been off lately, been tuning into these shows via archives, but am hoping to catch the Tues/Wed/Thurs night owl programs as they air more often that not.
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:17pm still b/p:

And I remember ears gotta be cleared of grit later.
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:18pm Funky16Corners:

We're getting grit up here but it's all pollen. If I choke to death on the air tomorrow night you can blame the trees.

Love the sound of that harp
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/16/17 10:25pm coelacanth∅:

this is so perdy ...i bet it's not in the jukebox at the pub though - despite the positive effect it would have on the evening.

Hey all!

Who wants to start a jukebox company with me?
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:27pm Funky16Corners:

Jimmy Holiday's a really interesting guy, singer, songwriter
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:27pm still b/p:

All jukeboxes oughta be online by now so we could access FMU archives and favorites for a quahtah.
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:27pm Funky16Corners:

Someone is probably working on it
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

Where's this from? The horns were a surprise after the sound of the guitar and piano.
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:30pm Kris Holmes:

Chicago?
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:31pm Funky16Corners:

Nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/16/17 10:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Plus, everyone basically walks around with access to all the songs in the world in their pocket, anyhow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/16/17 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

"internet" jukebox owners have very specific deals with publishers. at least 1/3 and maybe more than 1/2 of what i'd like to play at the pub is not available. (despite the fact that it's "on line")
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/16/17 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

ha! definitely not the same song as "sweeter as the years go by"!

Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:51pm Little Danny:

Bel Cantos! That was awesome
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

This Bel Cantos is very cool. I thought it was a British R&Beat group when it started
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:53pm Funky16Corners:

I will aim to please!
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:55pm Little Danny:

Downey had a coupla sides apiece from the Chantays, the Rumblers, the Hustlers. And some garage 45s too
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:56pm Funky16Corners:

That Lauterbach book is great. I was thinking about it while watching American Epic on PBS tonight.
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:57pm Little Danny:

This Little Tommy is incredible and totally new to me
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:57pm Kris Holmes:

The Rumblers is what I was trying to say!!
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:58pm Little Danny:

Also this 45 sounds hella expensive
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, this Little Tommy is great!
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 10:59pm still b/p:

I'm reading something that told me Tommy Chong was in a band that toured the Chitlin Circuit in the Circuit's last late days.
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 11:00pm Kris Holmes:

oops lost one side of turntable will fix after this ringleaders is done
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/16/17 11:00pm JtotheK:

@Little Danny ... my internet research confirms your theory about your relative Little Tommy. another 45 to add to the 'doubtful I'll acquire' list. (And it was also new to me - and agreed, it's great!)
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 11:01pm geezerette:

This sound is so honest and exuberant. Sounds like freedom.
The Little Tommy knocked me out.
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 11:01pm Funky16Corners:

Still b/p, Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 11:06pm Little Danny:

Hell yes on Latin Strut. I forget how good this is

ha, righto mate, see ya tomorrow night!
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 11:38pm still b/p:

"i might sleep with it tonight..."

I see a romance cover: Kris nearly shirtless, with burning eyes, powerful and gentle simultaneously, as he cradles the loaner. "One Night In Marathon. A passing stranger introduced them. It was quickly a passion that made the desert bloom...music that made the mesquite shiver. But they could be together just....one night."
Avatar Tue. 5/16/17 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

hahahaha
