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.

  Tue. 5/30/17 10:11pm Anna D.:

Settling in for a Long Ride Home.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Anna, welcome!
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:12pm still b/p:

Blender blades gotta do some violence and create disturbance to make a smoothie. (From the eggs/omelette file...maybe.)
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:13pm Kris Holmes:

Dan, I have cleaned & listened to maybe the first 100 I bought at ARC but am not at the playing them on the show point yet. Soon though!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

The "first hundred"? I'm gonna cry...
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

I bought just over 300
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:15pm Kris Holmes:

Most are definite keepers from what I can tell so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 10:18pm Little Danny:

Big Bend is the greatest
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:24pm Uncle Michael:

I'll pay shipping on the non-keepers, Kris.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:24pm still b/p:

Got introduced to chiggers on one trip to Big Bend, in crazy heat. Had a nice canoe trip through Boquillas Canyon on another trip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 10:25pm Doug Schulkind:

The one thing missing from Big Bend is a scumsuckingmotherucking wall.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:26pm Kris Holmes:

totally missing a wall
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

oh man i got chiggered last year for the first time "welcome to texas" :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

Never go outside.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:30pm Uncle Michael:

I've been to the Missouri/Arkansas border. It's really beautiful around there.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:31pm Kris Holmes:

never been to missouri, only through arkansas from the tennessee to texas route
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:34pm Funky16Corners:

Gotta get up with the younguns in the AM. Have a good rest of the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:34pm Uncle Michael:

Night, Larry.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:35pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 10:36pm Little Danny:

Killer Tyrone Davis side. Early '70s Chicago Dakar/Brunswick/etc. productions are just so darn crisp and punchy
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:37pm still b/p:

Did a canoe trip on the Buffalo River in Arkansas and the only local animal life that was any trouble was an intestinal parasite that came home with my paddling partner, who'd unwisely added river water to his Kentucky Beau whiskey, which we'd purchased from the random guy who did our vehicle shuttle for us and also acted as bootlegger to supply us..."You in the middle of five dry counties, boys." That was some expensive Kentucky Beau and beer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 10:45pm Little Danny:

quoth Wikipedia about Benjy Melendez:

"Perhaps surprisingly, Melendez's family, including Melendez himself, were Marranos (Sephardic crypto-Jews), practicing their religion in secret even in the 1970s while being part of a Hispanic community."
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:48pm Kris Holmes:

wow i didn't know that!
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

ugh, intestinal parasite = no bueno, my sister got one in India
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:51pm Uncle Michael:

Kris, not far from you, over in New Mexico, there is a deep history of hidden Jews. It's really fascinating stuff.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

wow, crazy
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 10:54pm Uncle Michael:

Lovin' this set, Kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 10:59pm Little Danny:

@UM: "Crypto-Judaism" until this evening was a completely unknown term to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 11:01pm Uncle Michael:

I learned of this on our trip to Santa Fe. I find it fascinating. There's a great Atlantic article online.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 11:03pm Uncle Michael:

iminim?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 11:05pm Little Danny:

I've never heard you say anything with a drastically different pronunciation. Maybe "garage."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 11:05pm Little Danny:

But please do the next mic set with your impression of an American accent!
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:06pm still b/p:

Say empire, Auntie Em, and empathy.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

iminim? really???
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

how do i say garage Dan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 11:07pm Uncle Michael:

pretty much!
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:08pm Kris Holmes:

i don't know if i can do a us accent mic break without cracking up
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 11:08pm Little Danny:

Gare-age, with the accent on the first syllable.
  Tue. 5/30/17 11:09pm Dean:

G-A-R-A-G-E, pron. "Gershom Scholem."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 11:09pm Uncle Michael:

You're an awfully good sport about out bullying nativism, Kris. Fight the hegemony.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:10pm Kris Holmes:

oh right, i can hear that accent on the first now i say it. weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 11:10pm Uncle Michael:

The only phrase I know in Kiwi is "shape sheggah".
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

hahahaha
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:14pm still b/p:

The higiminy?
I can still get taken by surprise with pronunciations from other English speakers. Heard a sound bite from a UK someone who pronounced "respiratory" as "resPEERatory." Among the inexplicables is that while Yanks don't say that, we do say "conSPEERatory."
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:15pm Kris Holmes:

english is weird
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:16pm Kris Holmes:

did i tell you guys about when i say "decade" americans hear it as "dickhead"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 11:16pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, the English are weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 11:17pm Little Danny:

There are so many words I want to hear in your next mic break, Kris. Don't deny us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 11:23pm Little Danny:

I'm pushing off for the evening, Kris. Thanks for the great tunes and impeccable tastes
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:24pm Kris Holmes:

night Dan, thank you!
  Tue. 5/30/17 11:26pm Dean:

Americans hear "decade" as "dickhead," but it's English that's weird?! Uhm...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 11:26pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah, I need some sleep too. I'll say goodnight and listen to you finish the show, away from the keys.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

night Michael
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:28pm Kris Holmes:

i had no idea until recently about the decade thing but it has brought many of my friends much amusement
  Tue. 5/30/17 11:33pm Carmichael:

Heya Kris, better late than never.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:35pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Carmichael. yep, just in time for the good records!!
  Tue. 5/30/17 11:58pm Carmichael:

Ugh!!
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 11:59pm still b/p:

Thanks for the music. Injoyed it a lot!
