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 @JtotheK! And to everyone here. @Kris- Europe was a dream! Nothing beats playing these records out in the world + on the radio of course :)
Avatar 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

I haven't played Europe in a decade, overdue for a return!! They keep asking & I keep having to say no at the moment though :( But yeah, playing 45s out in the world is what it's all about & I am loving being back on radio!!
Avatar 11:00pm djsheilab:

Sounds like you're definitely overdue! Hope you get out there soon. And this Nick Waterhouse track...WOW! I love it.

Avatar 11:24pm djsheilab:

The What Four also did a killer version of "I'm Gonna Destroy That Boy" on Columbia. It's much heavier. Girl garage!
