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.

You don’t sound as if you’re from San Antonio ... :)

How is Portland, Carmichael?

I did text him on Sunday but he didn't say, maybe.......
  Tue. 8/13/19 10:07pm Carmichael in Portland OR:

Pretty cool, chresti. Moving my daughter back in for the umpteenth time. Someone recognized my FMU shirt last night, a student from New Jersey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:15pm chresti:

So, what kind of car does her baby drive? @Crystals
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:22pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is this fake live?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:23pm Kris Holmes:

I would say so

I first heard that version of 16 tons in 1998 in Belgium
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

makes sense, i think Lou Needs was Dutch
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:30pm Matt from New Orleans:

He was Belgian
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:31pm Kris Holmes:

I listened to three Cannibal Stew shows and it took me back to 1998-99

DJ ARB is a quality addition to WFMU

Thanks Kris, gotta roll off to bed..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

Because you don’t speak English even though you do
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

goodnight chresti. Hi Franco. LOL Matt
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

Hi Jason
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:53pm Little Danny:

This Chandler is new to me. Nice boogaloo-adjacent sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:54pm Matt from New Orleans:

I get that myself from time to time. There are a few words where I think I drop a syllable and they’re not used to it here.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:55pm Franco Twinkie:

That to me is so peculiar, Kris.The idea of sitting still for a power point lecture. Did you fall asleep, or just make lists of records you want?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:55pm Kris Holmes:

i didn't fall asleep which is a win
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:56pm Little Danny:

Power Points are deadly. The room goes dark and so do I
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 10:57pm Matt from New Orleans:

The issue is that they’re not dynamic and a lot of people end up just repeating what’s on the slide
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 10:59pm Kris Holmes:

that's the worst!
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 11:01pm Franco Twinkie:

I have been in the vicinity when they were dropped on a captive audience. The effect was like a black hole in the far reaches of the universe - cold and lonely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:04pm Little Danny:

Haha Kris your reasons for not buying a record. Man you really do dislike that name
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 11:05pm Franco Twinkie:

Kind of like The Sandpipers. A bunch of lardy guys in golf sweaters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:06pm Little Danny:

Tim Tam & the Turn-Ons is a worse name offender in my book
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:07pm Little Danny:

Oh how I enjoy the ultra-easy vanilla of the Sandpipers
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

I think I was confusing them with the Sandpipers to be honest & I was gonna say that Tim Tam & The Turn-Ons was pretty stupid too hahahaha
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 11:09pm Franco Twinkie:

I do to, actually. I just remember how out of step they were compared to other groups from that time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

I don’t get how this song didn’t even get too 50
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

Top 50 pop
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:14pm Little Danny:

That little guitar filigree reminds me of the Breeders' "Cannonball."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:21pm Little Danny:

Fave Mar-Keys side is their "Sac o' Woe"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m laying down. I’ll keep listening. Have a great night everyone.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 11:23pm Kris Holmes:

their sack of woe is great! goodnight matt
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 11:23pm Little Danny:

'night Matt
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 11:24pm Franco Twinkie:

Did Baby Dave have a record called Pringles And Cheese Dip?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 11:33pm Kris Holmes:
