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.

On Richio Suzuki’s show last week on Totally Wired, he had a guy named Chris who has a website called Pinoy Grooves and he played a bunch of solid Filipino funk/soul/r&b covers.

Apparently there’s a collectors market and due to scarcity they tend to fetch a bunch the 45s

It was cool going through the site and seeing all these new label designs
Avatar Tue. 5/14/19 10:28pm Franco Twinkie:

That was a great passed out on the floor anthem.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/19 10:32pm Franco Twinkie:

I suspect both Larry and Gilbert lead the house bands at the most dangerous bars in San Antonio?
Avatar Tue. 5/14/19 10:34pm Kris Holmes:

the west side was pretty rough
Avatar Tue. 5/14/19 10:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Doug Sahm somos puro west side, que no?

Love this set, Kris. No other FMU DJ ever has repped the Westside sound so hard. Kudos.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/19 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

heh -i thought the primate theme was continuing; the beginning of love bandit sounds a bit like "i've gone ape"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/19 11:05pm coelacanth∅:

(correction: it's "king kong" by tarantula ghoul)
Avatar Tue. 5/14/19 11:06pm Franco Twinkie:

I only knew I Hear You Knockin' by Quicksilver, then I heard the original by Tarheel Slim and Little Ann and just about jumped out the window.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/19 11:09pm coelacanth∅:

that's NOT the Fats Domino song right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/19 11:10pm coelacanth∅:

if those 2 kelly brothers songs are representing then i'll agree -sweet stuff there
  Tue. 5/14/19 11:11pm chresti:

Love Those Precious Words
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/19 11:12pm coelacanth∅:

(Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis, Dave Edmonds...)
Avatar Tue. 5/14/19 11:12pm Franco Twinkie:

I love King Kong by Tarantula Ghoul. It has kind of an "Oriental" sound. Go ahead and shoot me, but I love chop suey rock and roll.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/19 11:14pm Little Danny:

Likewise, mate! We'll find each other
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/19 11:16pm coelacanth∅:
