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.

Heya Kris, all!

Hi guys! How was your thanksgiving feasts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:05pm Uncle Michael:

Dinner for eight...food for twenty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:05pm Uncle Michael:

And how was your first American Thanksgiving experience?
  Tue. 11/28/17 10:05pm little danny:

Excellent. Just the way JD and I like it: by ourselves
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:06pm Scraps:

Well, Lake Erie does have three hundred miles of beaches......
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:10pm Kris Holmes:

Nice, dinner for 8 food for 20 sounds familiar!! JD & Dan sounds cozy!! We had a good one, 5 people, food for about 10!! So nice to spend it with friends & not at Misa's work for once!!
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:11pm still b/p:

Fine feast last week. Always a weird food day with timing and pacing with snacks and the day's other meals....or meal-ish moments.
In today's food encounters, I just et a brisket sandwich at a BBQ joint. And my systems of consumption, awareness and outcomes are long past the age where I can eat such a big heavy , sloppy, meaty thing and not say, "Ohhhh, I don't knowwww about this..."
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

sounds like the 'itis, post bbq coma

  Tue. 11/28/17 10:16pm little danny:

That Baylor project is mental
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:16pm Scraps:

Okay, how about this:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:18pm Scraps:

Yes, glenn, but we were talking about ohio and surfing
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:19pm glenn:

erie always seemed fairly calm to me, but what do i know?
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:19pm Kris Holmes:

ok, maybe The Motions were surfing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:20pm Scraps:

Should have said specifically ohio; i was responding to that. Sorry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:22pm Little Danny:

@Kris: I feel like I've asked you before but is surfing a thing in NZ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:23pm Scraps:

It’s funny, but I got into a defensive conversation with a ohioian who said you can surf, when I laughed it off, twenty years ago
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:23pm Kris Holmes:

Surfing is huge in NZ
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:25pm glenn:

one of these years i'm going to take the ferry from pelee island to sandusky, ohio.
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:25pm still b/p:

Remembering when Erie was often joked about for its massive pollution, at Thanksgiving I asked my sister who lives with her family near the lake if there were opportunities for clean shore outings. She was boastful about the beaches and pleasant natural spots.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:26pm Scraps:

Burn on, big river, burn on
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:27pm glenn:

i don't know about the south shore, but there are many lovely beach areas on the north shore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:29pm Little Danny:

@Kris: hereby requesting some NZ surf music then. Tho' all I can think of at the moment is some 45 by the Surfires. There must be others, right?
  Tue. 11/28/17 10:30pm Lore:

For the 2nd week in a row, I tune in & you immediately play Bo. What service!
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:30pm Kris Holmes:

there is a bunch, i used to play in a surf band too
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:30pm Kris Holmes:

It's like I'm conjuring your presence Adam!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:36pm Little Danny:

This JT is great. You know Steve Mancha's (earlier) version of "Friday Night," Kris?
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

yes, also great, big Steve Mancha fan here
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:37pm Little Danny:

Of course you are. Wonder how that found its way into JT's hands
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

Don Davis, was a producer from Detroit that worked with Mancha at Groovesville. He moved to Memphis to work at Stax & brought a bunch of Detroit songs & acts (Dramatics, JJ Barnes etc) with him.
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

so there is the direct link
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:40pm Little Danny:

Nice! Thanks for the info. That's pretty cool
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

yep, that's why you get stuff like Darrell Banks on Volt etc
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 10:43pm Little Danny:

Man the Moments are underrated
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:45pm Kris Holmes:

i'm back on a bit of a Moments kick at the moment, so great. I love the tracks where they get a bit of tempo & have a bit more rawness to the production. Sometimes they're too slick & syrupy but this stuff is great
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 10:56pm northguineahills:

Been here doing bills and cleaning.
  Tue. 11/28/17 11:01pm Lore:

Kris: Does Curley Mays still play around San Antonio? I recently turned up a newspaper ad from '58 where he's on a bill with Classie Ballou, Lowell Fulson, & Floyd Nixon (sic? Dixon?). Mays is the only one who gets a description: "Picks Guitar with Nose, Teeth, and Feet." Fairly recent Youtube clips suggest he could still be a fun night out.
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 11:02pm Kris Holmes:

damn, i haven't seen a mention but sounds like something i need to dig into!!
  Tue. 11/28/17 11:08pm Lore:

Cool, let me know! He seems like a nice guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-hkaXdLoLc

What a great version of "You Left The Water Running"!
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

it's a great song that is hard to not do a great version of but I agree that the Billy Young is a contender for my fave on any given day
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 11:29pm Little Danny:

Kelly Brothers: talmbout underrated!
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 11:30pm Kris Holmes:

great group
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 11:32pm Little Danny:

Also affordable 45s
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/28/17 11:48pm Little Danny:

Setting off now; thanks for the great show Kris and g'night
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 11:50pm Kris Holmes:

Goodnight Dan! Thanks for tuning in.
Avatar Tue. 11/28/17 11:54pm northguineahills:

Finally, putting the recycling out!
