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.

Hi Kris Heard some Australian 45s you would probably like/might own. It’s a band called The Traffic and side project of Ivan from Cooking on 3 Burners
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:03pm Kris Holmes:

Oh yeah, I know that band, fun stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

I heard a really fun interview of Ivan on last week’s Smoove & Turrell show on Totally Wired Radio that included almost all of the 45 sides and thus it got banned by mixcloud in the US. I heard it when it aired on TWR. I’d provide a link but unless you subscribe to a vpn service fairly useless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:08pm Matt from New Orleans:

My vpn trick will not work on mixcloud in the near future as they’re implementing the rules that currently only exist in the US worldwide.
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:10pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, i've been done with mixcloud for a while now, dead, like soundcloud before it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:10pm Matt from New Orleans:

Three strong tracks to start the show

Hi Danny

Just looked down, been packing records all night & am covered in mailer dust lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:13pm Little Danny:

Wait, so Mixcloud blocks any copywrited content its algorithms can identify?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

No there’s a bunch of stupid rules about how many tracks from an artist total in an upload and then another about them in sequential order. I think it’s 4 overall and maybe 3 in a row but not certain
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:15pm Kris Holmes:

mixcloud is a jerk
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:16pm Little Danny:

Fascinating. Thanks Matt.

hiya mr holmes, hello everyone.

Heya Jason

Hi Jason, Chresti and Franco

new school, new isd, all good so far, elementary music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/6/19 10:20pm JtotheK:

Danny, I found the Fabulous Pearls 45 that you spun back in July.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/6/19 10:21pm JtotheK:

hey matt!
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:21pm Kris Holmes:

you guys are in SF Franco & Chresti?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

Cool Kris. Is it a one year contract or open ended?
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

one year but i should be good to just roll over as long as i meet my required performance level & don't hate it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:25pm Little Danny:

Ooo that is a deepie, Jason. I wish the title were different, but what can you do?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:34pm Matt from New Orleans:

Your pronunciation of misery is interesting
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:34pm Little Danny:

Haha, I do know this one!
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

found two & they both distort, this is the better one but it still is pissing me off
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:36pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is this a roy Orbison cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/6/19 10:37pm JtotheK:

another 45 i found was 'got no money got no love' by big bob on the kelli green label. didn't know it, figured any 45 by "big bob" has to be worth a listen - it's really great!
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

not according to the writers credits but i am far from an orbison expert
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:38pm Little Danny:

Sounds okay to me Kris. You probably can locate a non-distorting copy online inexpensively
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

it's like a $20 record. This Pace-Setters just needs a clean
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:39pm Little Danny:

This Pace-Setters is far better than I remembered. Pretty surf-y, actually!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

I might just know the roy Orbison version. By two Johnsons?
Avatar Tue. 8/6/19 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:41pm Matt from New Orleans:

Same song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:42pm Little Danny:

Nice, Jason! That's a pretty big Belgian popcorn record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

His version is on the Big O album
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:44pm Matt from New Orleans:

I knew that song title sounded vaguely familiar. Thanks for contextualizing it for me Danny. I heard that song a bunch when I was going to popcorn dances the year I lived in Brussels in the late 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/6/19 10:44pm JtotheK:

danny, figured as much....within listening to the first 5 seconds I thought 'ah, this has got to be a popcorn record.'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:45pm Little Danny:

I'm jealous, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/6/19 10:47pm JtotheK:

my dear deceased buddy Flavor Dave gave me some advice, and that was to follow ebay auctions in Belgium to keep aware of the 45s in demand on the popcorn scene to then (attempt to) scoop up locally here while still inexpensive. solid advice that i haven't been all that great at following.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/6/19 10:48pm JtotheK:

(Matt, I'm jealous, too!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/6/19 10:49pm JtotheK:

speaking of popcorn - have any of you caught the new popcorn program on the sheena jungle stream? thursday afternoon, 1 hour of popcorn 45s -- show is 'cannibal stew' and it is terrific! i've only caught 1 when it aired, rest have been archive listens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

I have not
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

I never could figure out how to dance popcorn but had fun listening to the music and drinking beer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 10:52pm Little Danny:

Thanks for the heads-up on Cannibal Stew. Misleading show name, playlists look great
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 11:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

I like the Lazy Lester cover on the album that such a shame is on
  Tue. 8/6/19 11:16pm chresti + Franco in sf:

Plugged into the hifi at my son’s place@kris
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/19 11:26pm Matt from New Orleans:
