Married And Heels

Show Plans and Announcements

12 episodes in, and Grab A Stack of Rock keeps rolling.  A huge thank-you is due to my stoic co-host, the Mad Metal Man, for his endless dedication.  The panel and contributors involved have given 110% and things are still going to get kicked up a few notches.

This week, Friday January 27 at 7 PM, Tim Durling gets the spotlight as we discuss a topic of his suggestion:  Reissue Record Labels.  Labels like Rock Candy, or Sony Legacy, and many more.  Durling has his stack ready!  Rob Daniels will be on hand to show off some La-La-Land reissue soundtracks.  Harrison and I will also be prepared with some tasty discs of rock. With Durling and Daniels, two radio legends on their own rights, I’ll be able to just kick back, listen and learn.

And then…Friday February 3, at 3 PM Eastern time and 12 noon Pacific, we have the first live appearance of MarriedAndHeels / California Girl on Grab A Stack of Rock!  For  those with short memories, her appearances thus far have all been pre-recorded.  This time we go live!  I’ll be moderating questions, and I’m sure we will have a lot.  Her fans have spoken and they want to see more heels this time.  So why not?  Her shoe collection is just as impressive as my music collection, and she has more fans than the average rock star, so I say why not!  Dare I say why not.

Whether you like heels or not, California Girl is an excellent guest and I assure you we will also discuss music, and unbox a toy or two.  I have a Marvel Legends Killmonger to open, which I have been saving for this occasion, since California Girl has a thing for Michael B. Jordan.  It’s gonna be good.

Hope to see you at one of these shows if not both.  Please enjoy the latest updated version of the Grab A Stack of Rock theme video below!

Your Karate is a Joke! Grab A Stack of Karate Kid with Rob, Mike, Harrison and special guest Dr. Kathryn!

Some of the most fun shows are the unexpected ones.  I had no idea how much fun it would be to talk Karate Kid and Cobra Kai for an hour.  But when you have Rob Daniels and Dr. Kathryn along for the ride, you’re bound to learn something.  I have a feeling that this show will be some of the best Karate Kid content on YouTube.  We covered it all, and Dr. Kathryn taught us just about everything we needed to know about this long-lived and well-loved franchise.

We saw books, autographs, CDs, action figures and a personal message from actor Sean Kanan.  We also saw a lot of Cobra Kai branded clothing!  But even better than the things we looked at were the stories that we heard.  Whether personal stories, or tales of the making of the movies, the talk was top notch tonight.

Meanwhile, Harrison schooled us on Ninja Turtles, another popular martial arts franchise.  Rob also showed us some cool Bruce Lee soundtracks.

For “Ask Harrison”, we had a surprise question from “Blaze Bayley” himself!  We also had a group question from MarriedAndHeels about that most hated of bands:  Nickelback!  Discussion ensued.

This turned out to be the second most popular show we’ve done to date!  Thanks for watching everyone!

Grab A Stack of Lego and Heels with Mike & Married And Heels!

GRAB A STACK OF ROCK…with Mike and the Mad Metal Man
Episode 10:  MarriedAndHeels AKA California Girl!

A very special episode today for you Lego lovers, music fans, and connoisseurs of high fashion!  I was planning on taking this Friday off, but then suddenly had the opportunity to tape an episode of Grab A Stack of Rock with good friend MarriedAndHeels on the west coast — also known as California Girl and Edie Van Heelin.  I’ve been working on getting her on the show, and this week everything fell into place.  Unfortunately, Harrison could not make it but he was certainly with us in spirit.  CG rolled out some hot new Lego sets, just released January 1!  Star Wars and Marvel fans, pay attention!

Meanwhile the Australian Mad Metal Man flipped it around, and submitted questions for us!  One for me, one for her, and I hope you like our answers.

Of course music was a topic that we continually circled around, and this is where we may earn some hate.  Hendrix fans, skip past this part.  But one thing we share in common is that we love what we love, and we have our reasons.  What it turns out to be, is that we both tend to love the older tunes the most.  Have I officially become an old fart?  Possibly.  Watch and let me know.  It’s an interesting discussion that we could easily have expanded on.

A big thanks to California Girl for joining me this week.  We’ll have to have her back with Harrison.

Enjoy the episode!  Next week:  Star Trek with Mike, Rob, Tim, Harrison and Kevin “Buried On Mars” Simister!
