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.

Must continue with a better sleep schedule for 2018. Nice show so far, of course, sorry to bail. Funny what sticks with you -- for all the great music he created and the great interest in the related history, I find myself keeping the reported difficulty of Hall's personality -- and how he came across as such in the doc -- pretty prominent in the profile.

He was a man with a vision & could definitely pursue that vision single-mindedly , for better /and/or worse

Thanks Kris!

You are welcome
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/7/18 9:06am Brian in UK:

Thanks for the tribute, Kris. I saw the documentary a while back, still hard to take in what he achieved. It is something to go from a passive music fan to an active one, guess a lot of us would like to think we could do it but it would never happen.
