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.

Was this before he was knighted?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:01pm Kris Holmes:

I think he was just trying to be not so boastful
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 10:02pm Uncle Michael:

Ah. Humble.
  Tue. 7/4/17 10:02pm JtotheK:

waiting for the answer record "sustainable energy wind power man" ...
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:03pm Kris Holmes:

we may have to wait a while for that one Jason
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:04pm Little Danny:

Evening Kris and fellow listeners!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:04pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Dan!
  Tue. 7/4/17 10:09pm JtotheK:

Hi Danny! Did you go thru Twin Peaks withdrawal the way I did over the weekend? No new episode till next weekend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:11pm Little Danny:

Hey Jason! Yeah, I did! Only five more days...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

The victory of the battle of the 4th of July? Man, I went to a crap school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:16pm Little Danny:

@j2tk: just sent you a long overdue email response to your cave-organ missive
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:18pm Little Danny:

Nice pick on the 5 Royales cuts. For a decent stretch it was kinda hard to go wrong with their records
  Tue. 7/4/17 10:18pm JtotheK:

I'll check it out! That 45 is...underwhelming, imagine my disappointment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 10:20pm Uncle Michael:

Dammit Otis.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:20pm Kris Holmes:

Yep, all the great wars had great battles, Afghanistan, Dessert Storm, WWI, WWII, WWF, The Civil War, The War On Drugs, The War of Independence & within that one was The Battle of the 4th of July. Right?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

Actually Otis is asleep in the 45 box lid. Any skip like that at the start is because of a damaged tonearm bearing in my right turntable after being shipped from NZ :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 10:22pm Uncle Michael:

Ugh.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:25pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah, I'm gonna have to replace the tonearm at some stage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:29pm Little Danny:

The Fascinations was another entirely new record to me, and sublime. I clearly need to dig deeper into their discography; all I've got is "Girls Are Out to Get You."
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:31pm Kris Holmes:

that's the classic one but all are good & cheap
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:41pm Little Danny:

Loved the McCracklin
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:45pm Little Danny:

I grew up ten miles outside of Harrisburg. The Continental 4 were Harrisburg's greatest achievement
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:45pm Little Danny:

ah, thanks mate!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:46pm Kris Holmes:

Nice, their LP is pretty good & I haven't met a 45 of theirs I couldn't file.
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:48pm Kris Holmes:

next 45 is kinda Little Danny-ish too maybe I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:49pm Little Danny:

Oh yes it is. I own and love this record!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:50pm Kris Holmes:

What does their name mean? What is Merced?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:51pm Little Danny:

it's the small city in central California where they hailed from
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 10:52pm Uncle Michael:

On the Merced river, one presumes?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

ahhhh, that makes sense, so they didn't just spell Mercedes wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 10:52pm Uncle Michael:

Also namesake of the lovely Merced tomato.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:53pm Little Danny:

Hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 10:55pm Uncle Michael:

Anyone on a record buying trip to Chicago ever been to Raffe's Record Riot?
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Kris and Eldridge, together again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 10:56pm Little Danny:

They had a whole mess of 45 releases. The MBN record you played is def. one of their best
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

Never been to Raffe's. My Uncle Eldridge :)
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

That might be the only MBN 45 I have, might have one other.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 11:00pm Uncle Michael:

Putting away the keyboard, guys...thanks, Kris. Night all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/4/17 11:00pm Uncle Michael:

"caught disco"
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 11:05pm Kris Holmes:

Night Michael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 11:18pm Little Danny:

Never woulda guessed this is JGW
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 11:29pm Kris Holmes:

BABS! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 11:29pm Little Danny:

Wow this has gotta be one of Barbara Lynn's most Texas-sounding records. That organ!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

yep fully Tex-Organ
  Tue. 7/4/17 11:33pm Peter Mac:

Hey Kris, tuned in! Great show, been listening since the start.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 11:46pm Little Danny:

oh hell yes "Big Nick"
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 11:46pm Kris Holmes:

did you watch the Bayou Maharaj documentary?
  Tue. 7/4/17 11:47pm Carmichael:

Heya Kris. Awesome instrumental here!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 11:49pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Carmichael, thanks. James Booker was a fascinating character. There was a documentary called Bayou Maharaj done recently which is worth a look, it's online I think, available to stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/4/17 11:51pm Little Danny:

Nope, never heard of the doc. Thanks for the tip!
Avatar Tue. 7/4/17 11:52pm Kris Holmes:

I think it was even on Netflix or HBO or something obvious like that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 12:01am Little Danny:

thanks for another great show Kris
Avatar Wed. 7/5/17 12:01am Kris Holmes:
