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.

I like the new dark theme of the app. Just noticed the update a little while ago.

Hi Kris and everyone
Avatar 10:03pm Kris Holmes:

Hi team!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

This is very early ska. Still sounds very R&B
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like Slim Harpo’s version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

He also was a broadcaster for many years
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

He had a classic moment during a MNF broadcast in Denver where he announced that he was “a mile high”

Kris, the turkey carcass is in the trash, let's move on to tamales.
Avatar 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

mmmmmmm tamales tamales tamales
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

At least you didn’t leave it on Dukakis’ front stoop. That’s apparently a yearly thing. He criticized people not using the carcass and tossing it out and invited people to drop them off. Decades later people still do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

He no longer wants them but it doesn’t seem to matter

Hi Jason
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm doctorjazz:

Hey all, did I find my way home?
Avatar 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

i hope so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

I hadn’t heard that Mad Lads in a while. Still good.
Avatar 10:43pm Kris Holmes:

longer than i remembered, it just kept going
Avatar 10:46pm Little Danny:

Hey Kris, hey y'all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m feeling tired. I’m going to put the phone down and listen. Have a great night everyone. Hi & Bye Danny.
Avatar 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Dan! Goodnight Matt!
Avatar 10:54pm Little Danny:

Misa is right on. Love jazz bagpipes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm JtotheK:

I like Herbie Mann take of 'why don't you do right' .
Avatar 10:56pm Kris Holmes:

Jazz Bagpipes are usually incredible. Jason, then have I got the record for you cued up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm JtotheK:

Hey! Not bad!!!
Avatar 10:57pm Franco Twinkie:

Me too, Kris. I always feel disoriented after a nap, but I don't have a choice in matter. I usually come home in the afternoon, grab a cup of coffee, sit down and fall right asleep.
Avatar 10:58pm Little Danny:

Good call Jason

Never heard a bad version, actually
Avatar 11:02pm northguineahills:

Never can go wrong w/ Herbie Mann!
Avatar 11:14pm Little Danny:

Haha there's that school spirit Kris!
Avatar 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

ha, i know right
Avatar 11:15pm Little Danny:

Sleeping in is the best, though
Avatar 11:16pm Kris Holmes:

i wish i could
Avatar 11:19pm Little Danny:

(just texted you a long-overdue scan, btw!)
Avatar 11:20pm Kris Holmes:

Thank you! aka "the saga continues"
Avatar 11:30pm Little Danny:

Damn this Royalettes is gorgeous
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm JtotheK:

This Darrell Banks 45 is 25 cents well spent.
Avatar 11:41pm Kris Holmes:

this was actually $1 from a different spot, i have many copies floating around, i can't pass it up whenever i see it cheap
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm JtotheK:

Re: The Counts - I was listening to Grant Green Live at the Lighthouse over the weekend and his cover of Jan Jan on that record jams. (No 45 issued of it though.)
Avatar 11:53pm Kris Holmes:

such a great version & such a great album
Avatar 11:54pm Little Danny:

Unexpected ripping guitar solo on "Broadway"!
Avatar 11:55pm Kris Holmes:

yeah it's rockin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm JtotheK:

There's a Grant Green record from 2018 from 1969-70 recordings 'Funk in France' that I was totally unaware of until I heard on FMU (Duane show, maybe?) - which reminds me I need to pick that up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm JtotheK:

thanks for the tunes!
Avatar 11:58pm Kris Holmes:

i saw that & was curious.
