Options The Long Way Home with Kris Holmes: Playlist from March 13, 2018 Options

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.

How cool would it be to broadcast the marathon from Marathon?

@Funky16Corners
Kris did just that last year!

This is a beautiful record. I remember a short piece on her on PBS.
Avatar Tue. 3/13/18 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

Yeah she is amazing. Chris Strachwitz shot some amazing stuff on her back in the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

Is this a regular guitar with an odd tuning or something else?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

That was one of many marathon pledge related songs she recorded. Dig deep and support the Long Way Home and WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

My pleasure entirely!

Have you heard Tyrone's epic reading of Knock On Wood, done as a ballad?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:03pm Funky16Corners:

I've been looking for this single.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:04pm Funky16Corners:

What a voice Sharon Tandy had. South Africa's greatest (musical) export.
Avatar Tue. 3/13/18 11:04pm david w:

Delicious stuff. And powerful. Where else are these blended so adorably? Kris!
Avatar    Tue. 3/13/18 11:06pm Doug Schulkind:

@Funky16Corners
If I was less sportin', I would dispute that comment about Ms. Tandy be South Africa's greatest music export.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:06pm Funky16Corners:

South Africa's greatest mod bird export?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:07pm Funky16Corners:

Not counting Dave Matthews?
Avatar    Tue. 3/13/18 11:07pm Doug Schulkind:

We can drink to THAT!

Donate $20 and be in the running for that very cool Bee Gees covers CD and this spectacularly funky Lafayette Afro Rock Band music! $75 gets you the Log Way Home marathon premium CD.
Avatar Tue. 3/13/18 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

$75 and I will change the name of the show to The Log Way Home until next marathon......

The WFM-YULE log. Burning 24/7/365 with musical goodness!
Avatar    Tue. 3/13/18 11:16pm Doug Schulkind:

One of my favorite hockey players from my childhood was Rod Langway. He was one of the last players who refused to wear a helmut, and he was grandfathered in with the old pre-mandatory helmet rules.

Make your pledge now to the Langway Home!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:16pm Funky16Corners:

Is that the home for lumpy headed, helmetless players?
Avatar Tue. 3/13/18 11:17pm Kris Holmes:

All sorts of alternate options ..... so very groocy
Avatar    Tue. 3/13/18 11:19pm Doug Schulkind:

That's brain I wouldn't want to autopsy. (On Monday, I begin a rotation at an Alzheimer's research lab where I will likely get to observe a brain autopsy or two.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:20pm Funky16Corners:

Listen to all of this fantastic music. Kris digs deep and brings the heat every week. If you dig what he does, dig deep and pledge to The Long Way Home and WFMU. It's the groocy thing to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:20pm Funky16Corners:

@Doug - will there be frogs?
Avatar    Tue. 3/13/18 11:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Bloody ones, spewing from the machine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

Listen to this! Spontaneous composition! Send in those cards and letters (stuffed with PLEDGES!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:22pm Funky16Corners:

This is funny, isn't Dean from Dean and Jean the guitarist on Tommy Tucker's High Heel Sneakers?
Avatar Tue. 3/13/18 11:27pm Kris Holmes:

I think maybe he is the guitarist heh
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

If you haven't pledged yet, there's still time to get in your minimum pledge of $20 to be in consideration for this hour's prizes - The Bee Gees covers CD, The Afro Funk Explosion CD and the Como Mamas LP - and $75 gets you the Long Way Home marathon premium CD
Avatar    Tue. 3/13/18 11:30pm Doug Schulkind:

If harnessed, the musical brainpower contained in the collective Grogan/Holmes noggin could light every state east of the Mississippi.

No telling which way I'll go on any given day. Mostly good, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/13/18 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

Go Chester!
Avatar Tue. 3/13/18 11:38pm Kris Holmes:

I too am mostly good. Waiting for a callback from an old artist is almost driving me to evil at the moment though. Got his wife on the phone today but still not him.....

Last year, I couldn't even pledge, so this year feels great!

No. Less than 10 known copies in the universe. Mythically rare.
