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

Twenty 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.

those adapters you recommended are great. thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:08pm chresti:

I think it hit upper thirties 3 times last year. No wonder you want to go to Florida-

mid-20s (f) here at night. too soon.
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

glad those adapters get the thumbs up

I think I personally am down to one degree of separation with KB.

55 here in Berkeley. Chilly. Had to turn on the wall furnace.

A friend of mine in Chico described Paradise as Chico's Oakland (in terms of it being where Chico's labor force lives). If that's so, I wonder what's Chico's Berkeley.
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:18pm Dean:

Nowadays, Berkeley's labor force lives much farther away, in Concord, Richmond, El Sobrante...

Both Chico and Berkeley (the universities, I mean) are famous for unfettered expressions of, uhm, fundamental urges.

We haven't used the wall heater in 4 years or more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:20pm chresti:

sounds great
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:20pm Dean:

I love having to drive to Concord. Top-notch Mexican food, as we've discussed, chresti.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:30pm Uncle Michael:

How is Chuck related to William?
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:31pm Franco Twinkie:

My mom called my today sister and said she forgot how to turn on the heater. It was 78 here today, but she's a skinny old lady. I called my friend Lam who is a heat/air guy but he went home to Vietnam. He sounded really happy. I wish I was in Saigon.
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Ray's Trio!?! On Titan no less.
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:34pm Kris Holmes:

no relation Chuck/William
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:35pm Kris Holmes:

Ray's Trio, classic Dallas Mod/Jazz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:36pm Uncle Michael:

Well, an awfully good impression for a non-sibling!
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, his real surname is Roberson so I they may have been trying to cash in there or something
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Before your show, Chresti was listening to something that sounded like spaceships colliding in the ass end of the solar system. I like earth music better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

The falsetto/vibrato was spot-on.
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:38pm Kris Holmes:

hahaha, thanks i think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

Jesse might hear you, Franco!
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:38pm chresti:

Dean - my dad and brother live in El Sobrante . My dad worked at the edmud plant by the bay bridge, not the office in Berkeley
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:41pm Dean:

I have a confession. Every month when I pay my Pacific Gas & Electric bill (not my EBMUD bill, chresti) I write "Fuck PG&E" on the memo line of the check. Of course, nobody at PG&E sees these checks, but it warms my heart to flip off those bastards in some vague symbolic way.
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:42pm chresti:

So Chico is a party place huh? UCSB has that reputation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:42pm Uncle Michael:

Considering PG&E may have actually started this big fire, it seems like the least you can do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:43pm Uncle Michael:

The thrill is gone, Kris.
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:44pm Dean:

Those pricks are cowering due to my memo lines!
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:45pm Kris Holmes:

The thrill is fading, it's pretty rare that i can walk into a record store or record fair in 2018 & get excited/find something to buy :(
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:47pm chresti:

Haha dean! I do a similar thing with credit card entities- writing things like “please stop being so evil!”
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:47pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, I sold a piece of property in the city of Los Angeles a while back, and it pleased me in a big way that I would no longer be paying those motherfuckers the LADWP, so I understand your impulse.
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:48pm chresti:

Sometimes it works
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:50pm chresti:

When I talk to “customer service “ I’ll ask questions like “do you have a break room with a ping pong table?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:55pm Uncle Michael:

I asked if they're shackled to bare metal bedframes at night.
  Tue. 11/13/18 10:57pm chresti:

Haha UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/13/18 10:59pm Uncle Michael:

I'm cutting off the lights, friends. Keep the ones and zeros coming my way, Kris. Thanks for the music. Night all.
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 10:59pm Franco Twinkie:

Kris, The first Sunday of the month Pasadena City College has a flea market, and as much as I try to ignore it, it's the record area that keeps calling me back, because .....you never know.
  Tue. 11/13/18 11:00pm chresti:

Goodnight UM
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 11:01pm Kris Holmes:

Goodnight Michael

I remember the Pasadena Swap but I haven't been since I left California
  Tue. 11/13/18 11:03pm chresti:

The scary thing is-that’s imaginable in an overseas call center (shackles)
  Tue. 11/13/18 11:09pm Dean:

The Harmonia Mundi parking lot sale on Robertson Blvd.: nothing like it ever in the history of anything and everything.
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 11:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, I missed that one. Back in ye olden tymes I would go to the Capitol Records swap that started at midnight till sunrise. Every freakoid in Hollywood usta go to that one. You Ever?
  Tue. 11/13/18 11:17pm Dean:

I went to the Capitol Records meet quite a bit. That's where I acquired, among other things, a number of Genesis bootlegs and the Residents' Fingerprince.
Avatar Tue. 11/13/18 11:19pm Franco Twinkie:

This was a mainstay on KPPC in Pasadena in the early 70's. RIP Gil Scott-Heron.

There is this photo of Larry Williams in the studio with Johnny Guitar Watson and some of the guys from Kaleidoscope - what the hell is that about?
