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.

Hey Kris! I got here early. Looking forward to the show. I’m not sure how active a chat participant I’ll be as I’ve still got work to do.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 9:55pm Kris Holmes:

Well thanks for tuning in Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

I take that back. My brain is slowing down so I’ll be here. I can’t focus as much as I should.

Would it be....star time?

Hi Kris! Finally made it- hello house mates!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

I got to see Dick a number of times over the years and there were always young people in the crowd as I ceased to be one of them.

So many good things going on in Misirlou.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 10:13pm Franco Twinkie:

Dick was very loud live. Piles of old Fender amps cranked to a hundred and ninety twelve. He made sure everyone had blood running out of their ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 3/19/19 10:14pm melinda:

Blew my mind too, the best part of that movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:15pm Little Danny:

I too first heard Dick Dale c/o Pulp Fiction
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

I first saw him in Frankie and Annette movies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:18pm Little Danny:

I'd point a time machine straight to the Rendezvous Ballroom
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 3/19/19 10:23pm chresti:

Kris, There ought to be a star and a microphone by the DJs names, or a turntable
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 10:23pm Kris Holmes:

yeah, can you imagine what those shows were like, electric
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 10:24pm Kris Holmes:

a little turntable or mic would be rad
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 10:25pm Franco Twinkie:

One day I was walking around the Rose bowl and I ran into an old neighbor,I asked him what he was doing and he said playing drums with Dick Dale. I said WHAA!?! How'd that happen? He said he walked up to him after a gig and said " Your drummer is crummy, I'm better." Dick said " Okay, you be my drummer" And he did! For quite awhile. I saw on them at the Santa Monica pier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

I love me some rib tips. You gonna play bacon fat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:27pm Little Danny:

There's Franco with just another brilliant story. A zelig for rock fans, I tell ya
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:28pm Little Danny:

"Bacon Fat" was a minor R&B hit, I believe
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 10:29pm Kris Holmes:

i don't think i have Bacon Fat!!!!
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 10:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Preposterous but true,Danny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 10:32pm Matt from New Orleans:

Larry played a Viceroys cover of it last night so he might not either. He played rib tips as well.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 10:35pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:17pm Franco Twinkie:

I like to imagine some cracker saying that to the drummer of The Barbarians, who had a hook for a hand, and him digging it into eye socket of the guy.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:18pm Kris Holmes:

hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 11:21pm Little Danny:

My cousin Irene lived on Don Julian Ave, now she lives on Ben Hur St.
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:37pm Dean:

Ben Hur in Whittier?
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:37pm Franco Twinkie:

This is from crazy land for sure!
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean! Yup!
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:39pm Dean:

I grew up 2, 3 blocks away.
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:40pm Dean:

Well, more like six, but still, I had a buddy who lived on that street.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:40pm Franco Twinkie:

On the hilly side?
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:41pm Dean:

Northwest of the park at Gunn and Light, one block south of Mulberry.
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:42pm Dean:

I was in unincorporated LA County, an area USPS treated as Whittier.

Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, Dean, Don Julian vs. Ben Hur. You and me! Capes? Masks? Bejeweled belts? We could retire rich, rich, rich!
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:47pm Dean:

I don't want to retire rich. I want to retire in debt.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Yeah, I grew up in county strip too. On the other side of the hill. Bassett.
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:50pm Dean:

Suburbia. Gets a bad rap. Racist? Sure. But what square inch of USA isn't?
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:52pm Franco Twinkie:

It's not our fault where our parents bought a house. But having said that, I have no shame in been from the wrong side of the tracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 11:53pm Little Danny:

Love this Barbara McNair
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:53pm Dean:

I didn't live on either side of the tracks.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

wish it was cleaner
  Tue. 3/19/19 11:55pm Dean:

Didn't live on the tracks, either. Life was hard.
Avatar Tue. 3/19/19 11:58pm Franco Twinkie:

I grew up two blocks from a Southern Pacific freight line. It's a wonder I didn't get chopped into pieces.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/19/19 11:58pm fleep:

Thanks, Kris!
  Wed. 3/20/19 12:00am Dean:

I was five or six blocks from one. And now I'm half a mile from a freight/passenger line. 4:00am or so, it's loud and clear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/20/19 12:00am chresti:
