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.

A $75 pledge gets you the reward of my South West Tex Mex Sampler CD full of amazing Cumbias & Bolero Ballads. Music you don't often encounter outside of the South West.

I also have prizes from Durand Jones, Jimi Hendrix, James Hunter, Charlie Rich, Mississippi Fred McDowell & The Shacks to give away. Remember, your odds to be rewarded are greater if you pledge on the stream since the traffic here is less competition than the main station!!!

  Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/12/19 10:12pm Tim in TN:

So if I were to go record hunting with Kris or Larry (like they would put up with me), I think it might take 5 minutes to blow through any alleged budget.

The secret is to buy low & sell high

Kris have you heard anything about the ponderosa stomp for this fall? It is the every other year. They announced the 2017 version in the fall of 2016. I forgot to ask Ira when I ran into him a month or so ago.

Love that Chicago sound!

You never want to buy high. When you're high, you're liable to buy anything.

The stomp “promoted” a show the Saturday before Mardi Gras with lil buck al carnival time guitar lightning lee and others but I didn’t even find out about till after the fact when I thought about the stomp sometime last week. The show was at a bar a few blocks from me so I would have gone if I had known.
Avatar Tue. 3/12/19 10:34pm Kris Holmes:

i saw that poster on fb, would have been a good show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/12/19 10:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

Larry your “pseudo” boss Kurtis loves the retro soul acts so I usually find out about them from his show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/12/19 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

@Kris - Who plays on the Jimi? No info on Discogs
Avatar Tue. 3/12/19 10:36pm Kris Holmes:

not sure, i don't have info in front of me but i think they are mostly Band of Gypsys era outtakes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/12/19 10:36pm Funky16Corners:

@Matt - I have to confess that I don't listen to a!ot of the new stuff. I really should.
