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.

SEVEN STEPS (TO PLEDGING):
1. $20 gets you in the running for prizes;
2. $75 gets you Kris's fab premium (& a t-shirt!);
3. Here is where you pledge: pledge.wfmu.org... (or use handy embedded widget at top of the playlist)
4. Here is where you can see all swag: wfmu.org... (with a link to a page of all DJ premiums)
5. Consider the renewing, monthly contribution known as Swag for Life - so much swag! This is the BEST way to support the station.
6. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the Long Way Home.
7. Repeat as needed.

Possibly my fave Lee Fields track of *any* period
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/6/18 10:06pm Little Danny:

That Rick Hall autobio looks so, so tasty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/6/18 10:06pm Little Danny:

Don't mind if I get in the running myself
Avatar    Tue. 3/6/18 10:08pm Doug Schulkind:

Kris, as with many other shows, your pledge widget is not working. It will not show a goal, when you set it. It will not show the pledge progress for your show. It will just keep showing the overall WFMU pledge progress. Folks at the station are trying to fix this. To see your pledge total, open the GOAL page in your marathon console. The amount will appear in the little box, but then will be replaced by the station total. Refresh the page to see your total again.

Danny, I'm not in the running!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/6/18 10:19pm Little Danny:

Geez, of course. Someone gets a little over-excited when prizes are going out.
