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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

The Harrison cover is pretty good as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

Playing my Theme Song I see
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

Reta had quite the punim as my grandmother would have said
Avatar 10:13pm Kris Holmes:

"not for broadcast" but i think we're safe from the censors by now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

An underrated Fats cut
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm WR:

Yes, don't recall hearing this Fats track before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

Feel better Kris
Avatar 10:20pm northguineahills:

Is Felinedia, Sibelius' follow up to Finlandia but instead of dedicated to the Suomi, it's dedicated to cats?
Avatar 10:21pm northguineahills:

When I first get a soar throat, I sound like Barry White...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

Where does your throat fly off to NGH?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Matt from New Orleans:

All of these were 25 cents?
Avatar 10:27pm Kris Holmes:

Felinedia is the spiritual home planet of all cats, that is where the messages they receive (when they randomly run out of the room) come from & to which they are all trying to one day build a spaceship to return if only they had opposable thumbs & could use tools to get it done.
Avatar 10:31pm northguineahills:

@Matt: it soars above the clouds until it finds the pharynx sphinx.

I'm off in 10, thanks Kris!

WFMU, where I can make obscure jokes about 19th c Finnish composers and cats...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Matt from New Orleans:

The only Wind I knew up till just now is an obscure group that released a funk 45 in 1981
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Matt from New Orleans:

And by released I meant had a promo issued
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

He’s no Ricky Nelson but a solid track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

It was 80 and humid as hell here and again tomorrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

No sun though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Matt from New Orleans:

en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Matt from New Orleans:

For the wind track and Elton John
Avatar 10:46pm Kris Holmes:

So the Cool Heat Version is the same as the Wind version? Crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Matt from New Orleans:

I can feel it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Matt from New Orleans:

This was definitely sounding 80s and heavily in debt to Prince
Avatar 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

And MJ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Matt from New Orleans:

This one definitely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Matt from New Orleans:

Were the Mizell brothers still involved with them on this 45
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Matt from New Orleans:

I dig it Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hopefully the Mets will be more consistent this year but who the hell knows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

16 games
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

162
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like big butts I cannot lie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

The inspiration for Sir Mix a Lot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

James loved the Mothers as well
Avatar 11:05pm Kris Holmes:

indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Matt from New Orleans:

Dennis still going strong playing a weekly gig like Les Paul did in NY for years and years
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm WR:

Check out time for me. Have enjoyed the tunes. Nece Rhodes is new to me. Like what she did with the Prince influence. Laters.
Avatar 11:10pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks for tuning in WR
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

Good night WR
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s just us now Kris. I was going to put the phone down and listen but I’ll try to keep you company
Avatar 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

thanks Matt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Matt from New Orleans:

I saw Les Paul at the Iridium on a Monday probably 6-10 times a year from 1997-2000. Less so after that.
Avatar 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

cool, a total legend
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

enjoying these sounds very much, Kris! Hi, folx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is the BB Jones supposed to be a dance?
Avatar 11:16pm Kris Holmes:

oh hi there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hi Granny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Matt from New Orleans:

It did sound like a mini printing plant
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Matt from New Orleans:

The Bihari brothers did well to stay out of the way
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m enjoying the Blues tonight. I was listening to Matt Fiveash from last week before your show
Avatar 11:32pm Kris Holmes:

it's all blues, everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

Where’s Danny tonight?
Avatar 11:37pm Kris Holmes:

not sure, we texted yesterday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve been giving Danny a hard time during his show lately but I think I’m going to take this week off to refresh and reset.
Avatar 11:37pm Kris Holmes:

hard time about what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Matt from New Orleans:

Random nonsense. He played a cover of Across the Universe by a group called Galactic Sounds which I didn’t care for and didn’t find galactic enough based on their name and since then I’ve been in a mood when he plays songs about space which is almost every show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s all me being stupid and stubborn and nothing to do with Danny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m sitting here laughing at myself about how ridiculous I’ve been
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve heard him on with James Riley numerous times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Kris. I enjoyed the selections from your random haul.
Avatar 11:58pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Matt!
