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.

Kris I’m fading but I will try to engage and make it through
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:03pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks for tuning in Matt! Hope you make it.
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:03pm Franco Twinkie:

One carnitas burrito and one coconut water down the hatch and I am ready! Kris!
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:04pm Kris Holmes:

mmmm carnitas
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/9/19 10:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

I heard a b side from an obscure 80s LA soul man you’ve played before Dalton Reed but not this song
Giving on into Love. Really liked it.
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:08pm Katya Oddio:

Nice! Thought I had clicked WFMU Ichiban by accident. Hey there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/9/19 10:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

I thought I had searched his name and found that you, Mr Fine Wine and maybe someone else had played him but now can’t find anything. I must have confused my searches. Still a solid song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 7/9/19 10:10pm doctorjazz:

Nice Pitney, her had an edge I didn't know about. Hi folks!
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

Dalton Reed is a new name to me so it was not I
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

Gene Pitney edge provided by Swamp Dogg on that track
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/9/19 10:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

Who knows it was probably a different track from a different artist that I searched earlier when listening to the show I was listening to. I’m getting confused easily these days. I probably should write things down if I want to remember them.

i can't tell if he's singing about a female classmate or a teacher?
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:43pm Franco Twinkie:

Milking the horse.
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:44pm Kris Holmes:

for real, but still great, i'm a sucker for the horse 45s, take my money
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:45pm Franco Twinkie:

If you got a good thing, staple it to the wall.
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:46pm Kris Holmes:

or in this case "hitch it to the horse"
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:48pm Franco Twinkie:

I detect a vibraphone buried in the mix, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 7/9/19 10:49pm doctorjazz:

This Flirtations single, man...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 7/9/19 10:49pm JtotheK:

when I was first dipping my toes into the world of Northern Soul and soul 45s in general ... this Flirtations track really got me.
  Tue. 7/9/19 10:51pm tripod:

Enjoying the tunes. Thanks! Just housed an enormous platter of chicken fried rice while tapping toes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 7/9/19 10:52pm JtotheK:

(for a very long time I was incredibly intimidated by 45s, hence this show, Fine Wine, F16C, Doug, Sheila B, Danny, etc etc etc - there are tracks every show every week that are new to me!)
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:56pm Kris Holmes:

Flirtations was also one of my earliest Northern spins
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 7/9/19 10:56pm doctorjazz:

There's a cover I wouldn't have guessed would work, but Prysock is killing it!
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:56pm Kris Holmes:

mmmm chicken fried rice
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Nothing But A Heartache struck something in me that at first I couldn't pinpoint. Then it came to me! After school dance party at my junior high school that I timidly poked my head into.
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

45s, or as I like to call them, "the ultimate format"
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 10:59pm Kris Holmes:

Arthur Prysock has a few killers buried amongst the schmaltz, that being one of them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 7/9/19 11:12pm doctorjazz:

Great old single, Kenny Rogers. And with that, I bid you good night, good night , good night.
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 11:13pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay Kris, Texas guy...Lelands brother...any stories?
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight Doctor Jazz
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

no stories, but i did recently find one of Kenny's earliest Doo Wop 45s
Avatar Tue. 7/9/19 11:16pm Franco Twinkie:

I had an copy of The Srtangloves album...from Argentina! Gave it away.
