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. Jesse is giving you a taste of your own medicine as the lead in
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 10:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

My bad guess that was the stream
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:02pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, no Jesse :(

Have you listened to any of the shows yet on acid jazz’s new station totally wired

Hi Kris! We have wind blowing out the power once in awhile
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:04pm Kris Holmes:

Matt, I have not. Hi Chresti, dang. Fingers crossed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 10:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve been enjoying what I’ve listened to. I already followed a number of the djs on mixcloud.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:07pm Kris Holmes:

Who are some of the DJs?
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:07pm northguineahills:

Actually here, trivia got moved to Thursday, will have to miss Evan...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 10:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

That link is the full schedule
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 10:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

They outhustled Kurtis certainly. He’s been trying to add djs to the Face as I’ve seen him post recruitment offers in the comments of DJ’s mixes on mixcloud
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 10:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m a big fan of the face and everything Kurtis is doing over there

I don’t have any hair to pomade so not a worry for me
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:28pm Franco Twinkie:

Howdee folks! I will dig this funky-ass shit as long as the power stays on.

I'll have you know that yet again I've curtailed my local listening -- tonight, Ma Rainey -- for this program. Thanks for the distraction.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:30pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Dean! Hi Franco.

They’re part of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe’s Aretha tribute
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 10:34pm Matt from New Orleans:

They’re opening for the tribute I should clarify
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Bub Jordan!?! Didn't he have a donut shop on Atlantic Blvd?
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:43pm Kris Holmes:

Lol, not that I know of.

Heya coel
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 10:56pm coelacanth∅:

chresti if you're not familiar with the heidelberg project you might want to image search that. you might find it pretty interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 10:57pm Little Danny:

I hope so too! 75% sure I'll be there.

Hi Carmichael
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

That Austin record show looks way too intense for me. I just wouldn’t have the stamina to hit table after table.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

No records of the blind boy nature
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:04pm Franco Twinkie:

Kris, how do you keep your focus at those monster shows?
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:06pm Kris Holmes:

Blind Boy comes under last name & not a lot of that on 45. LP & 78 are the natural habitats for Blind Boys
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

Franco, I clear my mind & that is my only focus. The thrill of the hunt. I love it!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:09pm Little Danny:

by far my longest periods of sustained focus are facilitated by unlimited boxes of 45s
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, God knows I've tried, but I get crispy around the corners in about an hour. That's why I love you guys, you slave away in the kitchen, and we just stuff our faces!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:15pm Little Danny:

Believe me, Franco, it's *our* sick pleasure!
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

unlimited boxes of 45s are the best, but I agree, after 3 days straight I emerge pretty damn exhausted mentally from being "on" the whole time.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:16pm Franco Twinkie:

Does mar-ger-een come from cows? I thought it was plant based.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:18pm Kris Holmes:

i don't believe they were being entirely scientifically accurate on that one
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:20pm northguineahills:

Ha, you played that Blendells 7 months ago! For some reason, I hitting the hay earlier, thanks Kris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

I got loaded is too well known?
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Actually,it turns out, that in olden tymes margarine was made from beef tallow. So give this one to The Blues Rockers!
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:22pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, everyone plays that one, great song but rinsed out.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

Franco, that's great!!!
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

so i guess they re-recorded this at least once
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:25pm Franco Twinkie:

The real story is Mr. lee was a total prick.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

yes their teacher!
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:28pm Franco Twinkie:

I found a 78 of Mr Lee in some junk pile, but later rectified the situation with a 45 from, gasp, a record fair!
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

Ha. Record Fairs VINDICATED
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

was the 78 playable?
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:32pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah, with lots of frazzle. But I bought the 45 to do an Arthur tribute, and the venue had no 78 player.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

i guess for the better. most folks are allergic to frazzle.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:37pm Franco Twinkie:

I know I am. I'm having hella time with all the frazzle in the air right now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:41pm Little Danny:

"Tell Him Tonight" is new to me, and great. That tremolo guitar
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

oh, sorry to hear it Franco. i know seasonal frazzle is a big bugaboo for many
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:44pm Franco Twinkie:

All my life. But once I stopped smoking weed on a regular basis, it's not as bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

Did he do this at the stomp?
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:46pm Kris Holmes:

Dan, I'm a sucker for tremolo guitar
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:46pm Kris Holmes:

Matt, yes he did
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:47pm Matt from New Orleans:

My brain was fairly fried at that point
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:49pm Little Danny:

I love it so much. Pops Staple fer god's sake
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:49pm Franco Twinkie:

Pops was tops.
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:50pm Kris Holmes:

100%
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:51pm Little Danny:

Maybe "I Wanna Holler" was just too intense to release after the success of "Quarter to Three"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:52pm Little Danny:

Juke Boy Bonner track killed it. Wow!
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:53pm Kris Holmes:

Maybe. JBB is a fave for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/9/19 11:59pm Little Danny:

Thanks Kris!
Avatar Tue. 4/9/19 11:59pm Franco Twinkie:

Mission accomplished! Got thru the show without loosing power. It can go dark now, I'll just clime into to bed. Thanks Kris.
