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.

Hey Kris I just had to uninstall and reinstall the tunein app because it wouldn’t connect to tunein. I’d been avoiding doing it all day and just listened to mixcloud. I don’t like listening in web browsers on my phone because they have a tendency to randomly refresh the page in the background thus disconnecting the stream and I really wanted to listen to your show.
Avatar Tue. 4/2/19 9:57pm Kris Holmes:

well i'm glad you made it, i haven't used TuneIn for a number of years, strictly the WFMU web player here.

I read about a vinyl shop in Boyle Heights that opened up a few years ago. Haven’t been but read that there’s a Latin focus. Sonido Del Valle
Avatar Tue. 4/2/19 10:54pm Kris Holmes:

haven't heard of that one
Avatar Tue. 4/2/19 10:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Shit! I've walked past that place many times. The thing is, I'm always on my way to Guesados to get tacos. I'm not good at multi tasking, but next time...

"....and I'm not feeling up to par, like looking in my mirror and seen a police car..." One of my favorite poetic couplets of all times. Thank you David, you big goof!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/2/19 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

i concur. really the whole song is pretty genius.
people who aren't listening think it's a song about getting a haircut.
