Grab A Stack of Cottage Discs with Harrison & Jex

GRAB A STACK OF ROCK With Mike and the Mad Metal Man

Episode 21:  Back to the Cottage with Harrison & Jex

How can we possibly top the last cottage show, when Jex, Grace and Mr. Squirrel all surprised us by showing up at the lake?

While we always hope for more animal cameos, this is what’s on deck tonight:

  • Harrison and Jex both have new music to show off.  For Harrison, there’s quite a bit since hasn’t been on the show in several weeks!  As for Jex, the Jexciter, aka Jecalibur J. Rambo, he’s been on the prowl with Tim Durling so you can only imagine what he has in store.
  • I will be unboxing the very first 2loud2oldmusic T-shirt ever made!  (John T. Snow expected to make an appearance.)  It will look great on my new slim frame!
  • If all goes according to plan I should have some new music releases to unbox, including stuff that Tim Durling is responsible for, again!
  • We may see Lego.

As always, expect surprises.

“Landing(s)” Some “Trillion Dollar Treats” with Jex, Grace Scheele and Mr. Chipmunk

A wise man once said, “Life is like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you’re gonna get.”  This week’s box of chocolates includes some sweet surprise guests!  Jex Russell co-hosted, and harpist Grace Scheele dropped by for a bit to talk about her cassette tape Landings.  The end result is one of my favourite shows!  Top ten?

Max the Axe’s garage sale scores were the main focus of the show, with a second on cottage stories and musical memories.  We told the previously unrevealed tale of Max’s carbon monoxide detector collection.  We tributed the man himself with song after song, going over two hours!

Best of all:  a first.  A chipmunk visiting the show, captured on camera, live.  Twice.

Life is like a box of chocolates indeed!  I say, eat on.

Rock, Lego & Heels, Oh My! MarriedAndHeels, Mike & Jex Rock Your Good Friday!

GRAB A STACK OF ROCK…with Mike, Jex, and the California Girl
Episode 17:  Rocking Good Friday

All apologies!  There haven’t been too many live shows this brutal winter.  However, the California Girl known as MarriedAndHeels has been a consistent ray of sunshine this season and she’s back to co-host this Good Friday special!  This is, in fact, her fifth appearance on the show in 2023!

She doesn’t have to do this…she gets far more views and interaction on her own without me.  I cannot express how flattered I am that she actually wants to do our little show with us.

Joining us will be Jex Russell from Jex’s Vinyl World.  Together, we plan on tackling the following subjects:

  • New arrivals – unboxings from Tim Durling!
  • Brand new Lego sets at the MarriedAndHeels residence.
  • New Tim’s Vinyl Confessions shirts.
  • Movie talk.
  • Running a marathon.
  • Social media tips.
  • Edie Van Heelin’.
  • Surprises.
  • …and of course, lots of high heels!

Friday Apr 7 at 3:00 P.M. E.S.T. / 4:00 P.M. Atlantic, & 12:00 Noon Pacific. Enjoy on YouTube or on Facebook!

New! Improved! Grab A Stack of Rack / Rock Intro Video

I like updating the intro video every couple of shows to include everyone who has been on. This version features a brand new face: John T. Snow’s cat (licensing pending)! It also has more Jex, more MarriedAndHeels, and more dynamics.

No show tonight; as the Covid Chronicles have expressed, I’m tired! But we’ll be back April 7 with Jex Russell and MarriedAndHeels!

Grab A Stack of Durling Discs! Mike, John, Rob, Jex and surprise guest MarriedAndHeels rock your Friday

Last night was a bounty of success, except for poor Mr. Jex, who suffered from wi-fi issues all night.  Thank you to Jexciter for showing up and playing along!  Rob Daniels, John T. Snow, and special surprise guest MarriedAndHeels all joined in last night for a casual chat!

We successfully streamed to Rob’s Facebook, and the 2loud2oldmusic & Jex’s Vinyl World pages!  This will help us reach more viewers in the future.

Unfortunately, Tim Durling could not join us, which is a real shame since he was responsible for two of the albums I unboxed, both Japanese imports.

John had some rare Whitesnake and Bon Jovi to show us, Rob had a book and a Helix-related soundtrack, and Jex some Judas Priest and monster movies.

The California Girl known as MarriedAndHeels showed us her new Nike’s that took her on a 12.5 mile run earlier this week!

We had a lively discussion about Richie Sambora/Bon Jovi, Kiss’ Farewell Tour, Star Wars and a myriad of topics!

Thanks for watching, and if you haven’t, then please give it a watch below!

Jex & the Gang Unbox Stuff, Talk About Stuff, and Rock About Stuff!

Sorry about the technical difficulties, and thanks to Harrison, John, Tim & Jex for holding down the fort!

Tonight we talked about Alice Cooper (a lot), made some jokes about Journey, held some Spoons while we Needed To Breathe, and plugged a PDF!  It was a great, casual and fun night full of music and stories.  It was a pleasure finally talking to Jex Russell face to face for the first time.  This was his first ever live show, and I messed up the start with technical issues!  Thanks for putting up with me Jex.

Ask Harrison returned this week after a long hiatus, with a question from Tee Bone and one from my parents.  Meanwhile, MarriedAndHeels had her picture taken with Eddie Van Halen’s Frankentrat!  We took a close look.  How cool is that?


Thanks for watching, see you next week!

NEXT WEEK:  March 3, 3:00 PM E.S.T. / Noon Pacific, MarriedAndHeels is back for an EPIC UNBOXING.

Grab A Stack of Rock is Back with Jex Russell!

GRAB A STACK OF ROCK…with Mike and the Mad Metal Man
Episode 15:  Welcome Jex Russell!

There has been a heck of a lot going on here lately.  We need reset the show back to basics, back to the original intent.  That always was just hanging out with no plan!  So that’s what we’re doing.  Showing off whatever music they have lying around will be Harrison, Tim Durling, John Snow, and new arrival Jex Russell!  You might be familiar with the Friendly Frenchman from his stints on Scotch on the Rocks and Tim’s Vinyl Confessions.  Tonight he’ll grab a stack of rack with us and have a good time doing it!
