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.

Maybe you can work in Impeach The President just for yucks?

Hi Franco & Candy. He used to close the show with that for quite some time Franco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Candy-O'67:

Sorry y'all didn't get the snow, Kris. It was so incredible here! It snowed all day and was like a blizzard for like 3 hours! All melted by the end of the next day! Haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Candy-O'67:

Hey, Francoooooo!
Avatar 10:05pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, I know. I just thought it would set the scene.
Avatar 10:05pm Kris Holmes:

I saw the pics & was "DANG IT"
Avatar 10:07pm Kris Holmes:

Impeach The Prez isn't handy unfortunately, i'd have to go dig it out of the other room
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

I hope he was singing this ironically
Avatar 10:08pm Franco Twinkie:

Is this THE Johnny Winter?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Matt from New Orleans:

Yes this is the albino gangster of love
Avatar 10:08pm Kris Holmes:

yessir, early
Avatar 10:09pm Franco Twinkie:

He was a smoothie back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Candy-O'67:

Wow, trip that was him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Candy-O'67:

Haha, Matt!
Avatar 10:10pm Kris Holmes:

Back when he was a young hungry Houston hotshot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Candy-O'67:

What year is gangster of love from, Kris?
Avatar 10:12pm Franco Twinkie:

He was gangster enough to um, er, make breakfast for Janis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Candy-O'67:

I hadn't heard about that before, Franco
Avatar 10:13pm Franco Twinkie:

'Tis fact my dear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Candy-O'67:

Yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

Glad to hear you pronounce Scepter properly. I’ve heard too many Brits say skepter. Guess it’s not a full empire affect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Matt from New Orleans:

Sarah Fulcher?
Avatar 10:19pm Kris Holmes:

Did I say Sarah Fulcher or something else?
Avatar 10:20pm Kris Holmes:

No, you corrected me last time I said Skepter, that's how I want to say it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

True. Now that you mention it I remember. I forgot. I don’t remember what you said. I think I may have missed it. I was just confirming.
Avatar 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

I also don't remember what i said lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Matt from New Orleans:

I vaguely recall that name from liner notes
Avatar 10:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Just looked up Sarah. She was one saucy little hippie!
Avatar 10:24pm Kris Holmes:

Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

Here’s an interesting interview with her aquariumdrunkard.com...
Avatar 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

Candy, 1963 on the Johnny Winter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Candy-O'67:

Thx, Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Matt from New Orleans:

There’s another Big Dee or is his name misspelled which is all misspelled anyways as his real name is Ervin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Matt from New Orleans:

Brice Nice?
Avatar 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

The one & only
Avatar 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

The Nicest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

I know him but not too well. We have mutual friends.
Avatar 10:38pm Kris Holmes:

Brice is great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

Living uptown I’m very lazy about going out downtown(by that I mean the Quarter and further downriver) and most of his gigs are there.
Avatar 10:39pm Franco Twinkie:

Interesting article,Matt. WFMU's Jesse Jarnow did the interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Matt from New Orleans:

Yeah. I know Jesse from the Jamband scene again not super well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Matt from New Orleans:

Was Russell Evans an alias?
Avatar 10:45pm Kris Holmes:

I know nothing about it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Little Danny:

Love that Russell Evans, both sides.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Little Danny:

Hey Kris 'n' all
Avatar 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

Oh hey Dan! Did you guys get the snow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Kris and all
Avatar 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Candy-O'67:

Hey Coel!
Avatar 10:57pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny and Coel! Care for some lobster chimichanga? It's in the back of my truck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi Danny & Coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm coelacanth∅:

hey Candy! Franco! Matt!
Franco i guess that depends how long it's been in the back of your truck for!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm coelacanth∅:

i am hungry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm coelacanth∅:

and i've never had chimichanga, let alone lobster filled
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Little Danny:

No snow here Kris.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Little Danny:

Franco, yes! Start driving, see you soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Little Danny:

Great 45.
Avatar 11:09pm Kris Holmes:

How the heck has nobody ever starred this song on wfmu before???!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Little Danny:

Which song?
  11:10pm JtotheK:

I like the other side of that Exits, too - excellent double sider! Hiya Mr Holmes hi everyone.
Avatar 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

Exits Dan
Avatar 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Jason
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Little Danny:

Don't know. Thought I'd played it, hadn't.
Avatar 11:12pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, that was just bait to get the conversation going. I've never had one either. Earlier today, this culinary curiosity was hinted at elsewhere, but no factual information was offered. A search showed that they are readily available in the area. I will source one, and get back to you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Candy-O'67:

I starred the Exits, Kris! Loved it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like lobster and chimichangas. I could definitely see that being a Baja thing but can’t recall them specifically from my prior visits.
Avatar 11:17pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, I don't know how these things escaped me, But I am determined to rectify that oversight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

Crawfish enchiladas are a thing in Louisiana. I’m not sure if they started at Jazz Fest but that was where I first encountered them. 👍
Avatar 11:19pm Franco Twinkie:

That is something that I would eat in a snap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Candy-O'67:

I'd eat 'em, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm WR:

think this Harlem Shuffle is really live or audience dubbed in?
Avatar 11:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Candy, weigh in please!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

It might have actually been Paul Prudhomme. He had a recipe in his cookbook in 1984.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Matt from New Orleans:

Deano
Avatar 11:24pm Kris Holmes:

Next 45 is I believe ex-Little Danny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

Here’s the recipe in all its unhealthy glory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Little Danny:

Haha, yes it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Little Danny:

The energy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

Grew tired of it?
Avatar 11:26pm Kris Holmes:

I love it, thanks Dan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Candy-O'67:

Let me think, Franco....oh, I know! Right here

Brisket Banh Mi was killer!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Little Danny:

Nope, first pressing found.
Avatar 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

I think we have a couple of copies of a Paul Prudhomme cookbook & it has excellent recipes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Candy-O'67:

Kris, we should go eat there when you and Misa come to Austin sometimes. They have outdoor seating. It's small and excellent!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

i don't like lobster much but in things sometimes. lobster quesadilla sounds really good. i don't know if that's like a chimichanga or not...
Avatar 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

ooooh, i'm keen, sounds delish
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm coelacanth∅:

i think i've said this before but i used to think "chimichanga" was a fake mexican food...something benigan's invented
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Candy-O'67:

Yay! The brisket Banh Mi was sooooo good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Matt from New Orleans:

Chimichanga is basically a fried burrito
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Candy-O'67:

Thx for that link, Matt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm coelacanth∅:

ohh, right Thank you Matt.
yeah never had that.
i think i'll just have a lobster burrito then! i'm sure it's just as good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Candy-O'67:

Ha, coel! I remember Bennigan's!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

i'd eat a crawfish enchilada too. haven't eaten crawfish since 1/2 my life ago. i ate a lot of crawfish etouffee, at one time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm coelacanth∅:

Candy my girlfriend when i was 24 waited tables there, so we ate there regularly - and i swear they were good back then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Candy-O'67:

I used to think they were good way back when, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm Matt from New Orleans:

I remember it existing but can’t recall eating at one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

i remember it going downhill, until it was pretty terrible!
and the atmosphere changed from loud and silly to even louder and kind of mean and ugly. people seemed to go there looking for a fight, or looking to rip someone off
Avatar 11:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, Sounds like it's worth every heart stopping mouthful!

Candy, beautiful presentation on that sammich!

Coel, Benigan's? I don't believe I've had the displeasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

My mom used to go to the original
Fridays on 1st & 63rd in NY. It used to be a place to pick up women as insane as that sounds nowadays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know how widely dispersed the chain was Franco. i'd be surprised if it still exists though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Matt from New Orleans:

It does Coel. A company relaunched it after it went out of business and was in purgatory for almost ten years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

Are we going to get past the “fabulous” records tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

Should have just waited
Avatar 11:49pm Franco Twinkie:

Not here Coel , I can tell you for sure. But the very idea of having a brawl in a Mexican chain restaurant is the stuff of comical nightmares
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

Bennigans was sort of a chain Irish pub if anything
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

Matt, woefully tgi fridays was the best bar within at least 15-20 miles when i lived in a particular part of new jersey. and tuesday was long island iced tea night. very strong and 2 bucks.
and yes always lots of women there
Avatar 11:51pm Kris Holmes:

Last Fabulous one Matt
Avatar 11:51pm Franco Twinkie:

And they had Mexican food?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Candy-O'67:

Glad ya liked it, Franco! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

Bennigan's was a little of everything
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Candy-O'67:

Wasn't it Irish based at first?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

it probably was. they decor was vaguely "irish". but i remember mexican, texmex, cajun, little pizzas, fish and rice, baked potatoes, bread bowls of soup, stir-fry...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

They all became that over the years and that’s why most of them struggled to survive
Avatar 11:56pm Franco Twinkie:

I had Irish nuns in catechism class. There has always been affinity between the Irish and Mexicans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Kris. Have a good night everyone.

"jacks of all trades, masters of none"

Thx, Kris, and nice hanging with all y'all tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Candy-O'67:

That went by way too fast tonight, too!
Avatar 11:58pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks team
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

damn all this food talk did me no good. it's midnight and i'm thinking i have to eat
Avatar 11:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Thank you Kris, Hopefully next time we talk, someone will be on a rocket to the moon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Kris! take care y'all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm WR:

Rest of you, take care, go easy on the fried foods and high cholesterol seafood.
