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.

Kris! It's hot here too. My way of dealing with the heat? Turn on the oven and make a pie!
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:07pm Kris Holmes:

i don't know if that's entirely correct?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 10:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m here Kris. Had to make a phone call unfortunately so I missed most of the first song.

I've been here from the beginning man and I can't wait to hear your show..!..never heard it before..

Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:18pm still b/p:

Pie = always correct.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:18pm Franco Twinkie:

I could use a big plate of surfin' spaghetti.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:18pm CC:

I am so sure the Davy would be pleased!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 10:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy Funky Holmes!

Oh yeah...!..
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:27pm CC:

Man..!.. put me in the mood for a little Wet Willie!!!!...hehehe...
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:34pm CC:

It was like a hundred and two here in North Texas today!!!...
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:39pm CC:

Honest speak!!!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 10:52pm Matt from New Orleans:

We certainly got lucky. The part of the storm that was supposed to hit New Orleans ended up hitting the coast of Mississippi & Alabama.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:53pm CC:

I was thinking you was the new guy from Australia but I see that you go all the way back to 2016 I feel badly that I've never heard your shows..!.. I used to check everything out when I was on Web TV!!!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 10:55pm Matt from New Orleans:

Not many songs written by Red Tyler
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:58pm Kris Holmes:

that one is a little bit mysterious too from memory
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:58pm CC:

I like 'it'..!...
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 10:59pm Franco Twinkie:

I found that Slim Harpo record in a three for a dollar box not that long ago. It rekindled my desire to crate dig.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:01pm CC:

The thing to do is keep an ongoing ad in the paper and on the internet about how you like to buy albums and contact you!!!...simple!!...
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:05pm CC:

How long have you been in San Antonio Chris???...
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:07pm Franco Twinkie:

I have a BB King Christmas record on Kent, and it too is a very crisp, loud 45.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:07pm Kris Holmes:

21 months
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:07pm Matt from New Orleans:

No one knows who joe & Ann were or if they exist. There were later songs recorded under that name that were definitely different people possibly Huey smith female backup singer and a clown
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:08pm Kris Holmes:

that's it!
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:09pm CC:

I've heard that there are a lot of illegal aliens down there too!!!...hehehe...:)0(:
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:11pm Matt from New Orleans:

Exist in the sense that they were actually named joe & ann
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:11pm Kris Holmes:

Matt, right.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Right now I am tempted to go to the taco truck.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:14pm Kris Holmes:

Illegal aliens aren't the problem
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

Is that a post dinner snack Franco?
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:16pm Franco Twinkie:

Matt, No. It will be dinner, if I can actually motivate myself out the door.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

I feel you. There are definitely weekend days where I’m too lazy to make breakfast and too lazy to leave my apartment.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:18pm Kris Holmes:

I overdid it before & am now suffering through a major post gumbo hangover
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:19pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve been eating red beans too much as I made a giant pot last Thursday.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:21pm Franco Twinkie:

Gumbo would work for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:21pm Little Danny:

Heya Kris and homers
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:22pm CC:

A couple of fried eggs and a waffle with a sausage or two goes good with Delbert McClinton and Jimmy Hall ..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:23pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hey Danny
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:23pm Little Danny:

Good sir, hello
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:25pm Franco Twinkie:

A waffle at night? That to me is a provocative concept!
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:25pm Kris Holmes:

Hey Dan, thought of you in the coffee aisle today when i gazed on the Coffee with Chicory!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:26pm Matt from New Orleans:

Waffles can be eaten at all hours. You don’t remember NGH’s ice cream waffle taco from last week or the week before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

I don’t recall you reacting in horror then
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:28pm Kris Holmes:

dang, an ice cream waffle taco is a great invention, i'd eat the shit out of that!!!
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:29pm Franco Twinkie:

I know Matt. We have Roscoe's Chicken And Waffles here...but...I...just....can't.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:30pm CC:

The main thing is to never overdo it ...don't overindulge..!..shouldn't be that hard!?!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:30pm Little Danny:

That reminds me, I just need to buy that shit (i.e., chicory coffee) on Amazon already
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:31pm Kris Holmes:

Cafe Du Monde, yellow tin
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:32pm CC:

I can sure dig that guitar!!!...
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:33pm CC:

Freakin' sax ain't too bad either!!!...
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:34pm CC:

Yeah I think the drummer is holding his own!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:34pm Little Danny:

@Kris: just wish there were a sampler size. I'm not ready to commit to a regular can of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’ve been to Roscoes Franco. There used to be a place in Harlem in NY called M&G that was better. I got a job there washing dishes in college just so I could learn how they did it. I lasted three months and learned how to do it.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Bobby Gregg, who did he play with? Or am I confusing him with another Gregg?
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:35pm Kris Holmes:

12oz tin is only like a week in my life of coffee?
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:36pm CC:

12 cups of coffee year-round in the morning isn't too bad!!!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:37pm Little Danny:

Oh me too. Just worried that I'll have a Franco-like reaction to chicory coffee and won't get any further than that first cup
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

I was a regular customer and the owner was surprised that I wanted to work there but gave me a shot and I hustled and surreptitiously would pull out my tiny notebook and take notes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:38pm Matt from New Orleans:

I think I was the first white employee
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:40pm Franco Twinkie:

I must clarify: I am not a wafflephobe, or a breakfast hardliner, but as simple a food as a waffle is...I don't know. I suppose everyone has some inexplicable food weirdness.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:42pm Franco Twinkie:

Of Course! Dylan.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:44pm Kris Holmes:

The marriage of Roscoe's Fried Chicken & Waffles is a gift from God that one should never take for granted
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:44pm CC:

It is hard going into the waffle house after the bars closed and being the only blonde haired blue-eyed person to order something..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:46pm Little Danny:

Love the needle-in-the-red production on this Dells
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:47pm Franco Twinkie:

Just goes to show you. I lived within walking distance of the Roscoe's outpost in Pasadena, but was never even tempted. Go figure
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:47pm Kris Holmes:

they're getting raw for once
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:49pm Kris Holmes:

Franco, how could you?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:51pm Matt from New Orleans:

Fried chicken and waffles is a solid breakfast if you don’t plan on doing anything that day. Most places that serve it always seem to have the butter product in the mini syrup pitchers instead of real butter. I’ve never gotten fake butter.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Weird, I know. Plus, I would drive by the one on Gower in Hollywood all the time on my way to work. Same thing.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:54pm Kris Holmes:

Many many times as soon as I've got to LA my first stop has been Roscoes
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:54pm CC:

Right... if you are worried about it you just ask the waitress to give you real butter!!!...simple!!
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Seems as though I have to do some soul searching. No pun intended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:55pm Little Danny:

Haha Kris I've never heard you sounding so indignant
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:56pm CC:

I used to love to go to Mr Morts back in about 1972 on 19th Avenue and Glendale and Phoenix Arizona..!..
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:57pm Franco Twinkie:

This is great! I've derailed your train, Kris.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:58pm CC:

Great show!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 11:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Kris Had a good time
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 11:59pm Franco Twinkie:

I will indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 12:00am Little Danny:

Kris's show is regularly a great source of food discussion

Thanks for the tunes 'n' talk!
