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.

Good evening Dan!

Kia ora, Kris! Hope you are good
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:04pm Kris Holmes:

Kia ora Peter! Yes I am great, how are you?
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:12pm still b/p:

Go ahead, keep it up. Keep it up and I’ll have to favorite the whole show, is what.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:13pm Kris Holmes:

ha, worse things could happen
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:21pm still b/p:

Worse, such as: a young friend said this evening she didn’t respond to text series while driving. When she checked, they were from a name she didn’t know, addressing her by the wrong name. The “where are you” and “left work?” inquiries were followed byyyy...naked pic of female sender. Wrong target or weird scammy biz? Anyway, THAT would be worse! Sooo terrible!
  Tue. 2/6/18 10:23pm Peter Mac:

I'm doing good. Enjoying the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 10:24pm Little Danny:

Love this Little Bob. Flip "Nobody but You" is actually my fave side
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:26pm Kris Holmes:

Little Bob is unfadeable over those two 60s LPs

Hi Jason
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:34pm geezerette:

I believe it too...
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:35pm Kris Holmes:

nothing like some ultra swampy lo-fi R&B to make everyone believe
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:36pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 10:36pm Little Danny:

Cool! I only knew Ray Charles's killer
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

ah, forgot to say it's a retooled RC cover lol
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:46pm coelacanth∅:

hey Kris and all
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:48pm coelacanth∅:

ah, i missed some ultra swampy lo-fi rnb - that's not good;
i caught another version of key to the highway i didn't know -that's good.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:50pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Coel, thanks for tuning in
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 10:55pm Little Danny:

The Internet is telling me that on the full-length Washrag LP the guitar cred goes to Captain Guitar, indeed an alias for Cropper.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

Nice, thanks for the detective work there Dan! I thought it was a bit obvious to not be him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 11:12pm Little Danny:

My favorite Marr side!
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

Probably mine too, he seems to have so many, or maybe i just keep seeing the same ones lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 11:14pm JtotheK:

i also like the hank marr 45 'the out crowd'.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

don't think i know that one off the top of my head
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 11:15pm JtotheK:

great isley brothers 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 11:16pm Little Danny:

"Smothered Soul" is another killer Marr side
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/6/18 11:17pm JtotheK:

i don't know that one, danny! will have to check it out.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:21pm coelacanth∅:

that version of who's that lady is a new one on me. did they issue it as a single as well as the more well-known one? before? after?
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:23pm coelacanth∅:

Kris you probably know but the stream & your show are duking it out.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:24pm Kris Holmes:

i noticed one drop
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:24pm coelacanth∅:

at least 3 in the last 2-3 minutes
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:25pm Kris Holmes:

it's in & out a lot?
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:25pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:25pm Kris Holmes:

ok, Misa was streaming movies, i got her to stop, see if that helps.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

stream's on right now
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:29pm geezerette:

Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:29pm coelacanth∅:

first 1/2 of mic break was partial sentences, like a difficult phone call. it's been okay since then.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:30pm still b/p:

Stream only movies with thin plots so the pipe ain’t tight.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

ok, well let me know if turning off the movie has fixed it. The weather has been overcast/damp today which also seems to not help.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

you mighta got it
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

it's fairly important to keep your hippo happy.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:35pm Kris Holmes:

Misa apologises for overloading the interwebs
  Tue. 2/6/18 11:40pm Dean:

Humidity affects the Internet? I don't think so. RFC, please.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:42pm Kris Holmes:

all i know is that when it's rainy here the internet is weak, i have no idea why :-(
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

of course humidity can affect some internet configurations. it's an electrical connection.
  Tue. 2/6/18 11:44pm Dean:

Recall that the 'net was developed to deliver an infrastructure that would survive a nuclear blast.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:46pm Kris Holmes:

but apparently not rainy days in the Southwest lol
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

haha! do they really tell people that?
...really all you have to do is duck, and cover.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:47pm geezerette:

"Baby Rice" !!!
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:47pm geezerette:

classy cartoon music!!!
  Tue. 2/6/18 11:50pm Dean:

Basic utilities, like lighting at home are also electrical connections. Do we ordinarily notice lapses in those services during rain? No. We give way too much credit to the boobs who created the 'net, in my biased opinion.

Yes, they do tell people that. The whole point of the 'net was to leverage redundancy, so that if one important node was blown away--MAE West, say--others would pick up the traffic.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

the actual reason though, not the pretend reason, is to instill a false sense of security in the general population, so that when the shit hits the fan the people wont be prepared.
  Tue. 2/6/18 11:56pm Dean:

The general population doesn't know the first thing about TCP/IP and DNS. Ergo, they can't have much of a false sense about it.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

Dean, the wires that carry 120v into homes is a whole lot more robust than tv. internet etc cables; so yeah, we don't have dropouts in our electricity.
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:58pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks guys!
Avatar Tue. 2/6/18 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Kris!
Avatar Wed. 2/7/18 12:00am still b/p:

Fine fine feelgoodshow. Leave room for me in the shelter. I do fair imitations of Tattoo and Peter Falk as Colombo. That’s indispensable in a post-‘pocalypty world, right?
