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.

expert back-to-back play of "Strung Out" and "Burning Spear"
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

some 45s were just born to go together
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 10:10pm JtotheK:

san remo golden strings queued up next?
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

no but they can be if you want?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:11pm Little Danny:

I was trying to think what else fits that groove, too. A buncha Richard Evans productions on Cadet/Chess/Checker for one
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:14pm Little Danny:

this is a full-service DJ!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:14pm Kris Holmes:

Now that I have all my records once more :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 10:14pm JtotheK:

awesome, thanks!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 10:17pm JtotheK:

another good 45 in that groove - Robert Walker & The Soul Strings 'Stick It To Me' on RCA...
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

i don't know that Robert Walker, will have to check it out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Kris and homies
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

hi coel, welcome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:38pm coelacanth∅:

hey Kris, what was the music you talked over in the beginning of your show tonight? (guitar based, maybe african?)
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

well, i'm glad you asked, it's one side of my latest 45 :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

- you mean, YOU'RE latest 45?
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:41pm Kris Holmes:

that track is called "The Jungle". As far as I know, the label art is done & it should be getting pressed soon. I hope the label will have it out in the next month or two.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:42pm coelacanth∅:

(duh, "your", i mean!)
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:43pm Kris Holmes:

i'll definitely play it properly on the show when it's out
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:44pm coelacanth∅:

wow - cool! i quite liked it. (obviously). ...the percussion gave it an african feel - like maybe zimbabwe or thereabouts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:44pm Little Danny:

few songs address the tyranny of conked hair better
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:44pm Kris Holmes:

thanks, definitely i was going for a african/psych/funk thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:52pm northguineahills:

Did Colt 45 ever sponsor release any 45s?
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:53pm Kris Holmes:

i have no idea but it seems like a no brainer promo move
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 10:54pm JtotheK:

great emotions 45!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:54pm Little Danny:

Loved that Jackie Wilson side. Totally new one to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 10:55pm Little Danny:

@J2tK: Agreed. And again totally new to me
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

yeah that one is less well known & definitely catches people by surprise, what a voice though!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 11:00pm JtotheK:

back when I would play 45s out that emotions was always a fun one to spin, has the sample to a Big Daddy Kane track, usually a few people would recognize it/comment.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 11:01pm Kris Holmes:

yep, it's a classic! love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 11:08pm Little Danny:

Haha, oh man. I am familiar with those cycles of record collection internal discovery and rediscovery
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 11:09pm Cubs Win:

Oh, hi.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

i haven't even checked the score tonight, we lost last night & i was not impressed, sports is hell!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 11:12pm coelacanth∅:

maybe if you did your intro live, but started out saying just what your recorded intro says, it would gradually evolve in interesting ways?
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 11:13pm Kris Holmes:

maybe, i could try that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 11:14pm Cubs Win:

Dodgers are tied in the top of the 4th.

I handle my intro that way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 11:28pm Cubs Win:

I'm going to fall asleep during your last half-hour.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 11:29pm Kris Holmes:

how can you fall asleep to these dance tunes??!! ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 11:29pm Uncle Michael:

I'll be dancing in the dark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 11:31pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 11:32pm Kris Holmes:

night mate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 11:36pm Little Danny:

Glad to see that Zilla Mayes 45 is still purchasable for us mortals. Searching on popsike during your show is a rocky road
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

that Mayes track was sublime
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 11:38pm Kris Holmes:
