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.

Is this a record-breaking show?

Yank the cord and start this one up!

hopefully no record breaking

I love it when my chainsaw starts on the first pull.

Hey Kris and all!

Hi Dan!
  Tue. 12/19/17 10:23pm little danny:

Got you on while JD and I prepare and eat our weird dinner of bagels, lox and cream cheese
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:23pm Kris Holmes:

what is lox?
  Tue. 12/19/17 10:25pm little danny:

Salmon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:25pm northguineahills:

helloss....
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:26pm Kris Holmes:

oh right, Salmon! That's not a super weird dinner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

I can no longer keep the eyelids up. I'm conceding to the darkness. Keep the great tunes coming, Kris.

Catch you all later. The Curley Moore killed
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:29pm still b/p:

BLC at an unpermitted late hour. Step away from the bagel.
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:30pm Kris Holmes:

Goodnight Michael
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:33pm northguineahills:

There's an Israeli place here, but no Jewish delis. The bagel I had good ingredients (lox, cream cheese, capers, onions, tomatoes), but the breading around it was definitely not a bagel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:33pm northguineahills:

And the bagel places here close at 3pm, so I can't have bagels for dinner (which I used to at least every other week in Brooklyn).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:35pm Little Danny:

Kris: ask Misa if there's anywhere to get a good bagel in San Antonio. You should have some bagel & lox in your life
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:35pm northguineahills:

Wait, they have lox in Kiwiland (might be harder to find in west TX.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:36pm Little Danny:

haha your cats and the xmas tree!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:36pm JtotheK:

it's been a while, but sometimes i treat myself to crumpets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:37pm Little Danny:

@ngh: we had the bagels and lox shipped in from San Francisco
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:37pm Little Danny:

Love this Maurice & Mac
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

man, i fell like i haven't had a bagel in ages & i've never been a huge salmon fan
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

i don't think we say Lox in NZ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:40pm northguineahills:

I'm going to have the wife send me a proper bagel from Brooklyn. I've found almost every other proper culinary item here except a friggin' bagel! (well, that and Burmese food).
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:41pm Kris Holmes:

the cats are being super jerks, Carla has already opened all our presents :(
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:42pm still b/p:

Rig a fooood truck, ngh, make good baaaaagels, make a fortuuuuune!
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

have not had crumpets in years either
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:42pm Kris Holmes:

Maurice & Mac don't have a bad 45
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:43pm Little Danny:

I don't normally love salmon that much either but lox is a special case. Smoky, mild (non-fishy), rich, divine
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:44pm Little Danny:

I've never had a crumpet. Had to google image search it
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:45pm Kris Holmes:

Like a bubbly, more solid english muffin, but not really anything like an english muffin lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:45pm northguineahills:

Well, I'll be damned, salmon only naturally occur in the Southern Hemisphere in Argentina and the Falklands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:46pm Little Danny:

@kris: I'm sold!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:47pm Little Danny:

Huh. So that may be why Kris hasn't been fully convinced yet by salmon
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:48pm northguineahills:

LD, have you had pastrami salmon before? tastes close to bacon (totally kosher).

I would love to do a food truck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:50pm Little Danny:

@ngh: no! If I weren't so disgustingly full right now that would have me salivating!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:51pm Little Danny:

Carla just can't wait for xmas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:52pm coelacanthØ:

shoulda sprinkled some cayenne powder on those presents!
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:53pm Kris Holmes:

definitely shoulda
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:54pm northguineahills:

I believe Russ & Daughters ships everywhere stateside. www.russanddaughters.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:54pm Little Danny:

Dallas instro classique!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:56pm Little Danny:

Have you ever heard the Nightcaps' "Ole Jose" 45, Kris? Super hip rhumba-R&B instro
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:56pm coelacanthØ:

my sound keeps cutting out - I think it's this computer though? (I'm on a borrowed laptop because I left town for 4 days and forgot my charger.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 10:58pm Little Danny:

@coel: uninterrupted over here
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

this is the only Nightcaps I know
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 10:58pm JtotheK:

no issues with the stream, here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 11:03pm coelacanth∅:

thanks. it's weird -every now and then it cuts out abruptly then fades back up in about 20 seconds.
("fades up"...that doesn't make sense! what's the opposite of "fade"?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 11:07pm coelacanth∅:

yeah! you can dig in my Jerusalem artichoke field if you want, but no way in my potato field.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 11:45pm northguineahills:

oh, come on, profanity is encouraged on GTDS!
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 11:46pm Kris Holmes:

we have all been told we cannot use "G*dd*mn"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

haha ...well if they butchered this down to fit on a 45, it's clear their intention was radio play.
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 11:47pm Kris Holmes:

Ha, yep, it's an original white label promo copy for radio. Hence the bleeps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

ah the good ol days. I remember when "a boy named sue" was an am radio hit, with the "i'm the son of a *BEEEEP* who named you sue"
...that wouldn't faze anyone now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 11:53pm northguineahills:

@coel: That's even legal during primetime vis-a-vis the FCC today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 11:54pm northguineahills:

I'm putting out the recycling and garbage, if I don't get back, thanks again Kris!
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

you are welcome
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 11:57pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the tunes - thanks Kris! seasonal greeting to you and yours!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

even as a child I thought it was stupid that people got offended over the word "bitch" ...although, the way it's used now, by gangsta rappers and their wannabes, I do find pretty fucking offensive.

(oops did I say "fucking"?)
Avatar Tue. 12/19/17 11:58pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Jason!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Kris! gnight all
