Welcome to the webpage for Sonic Overload. As my regular listeners know by now, I play punk, hardcore, garage and other loud music, although there are surprises from time to time as well as decidedly slanted commentary on the “issues of the day” and that’s also presented through song selections and audio clips.


All of the shows from January 2009 to the present are archived for download at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

      Catching up a bit on the new and recent releases this week but still finding time to mix in older songs, as well, I go back to the early 60s, paying tribute to surf guitar legend and pioneer Dick Dale, who passed away yesterday. His music certainly had an influence on punk, especially Agent Orange (who covered “Miserlou,” his best-known song and the one you probably know from “Pulp Fiction) and Dead Kennedys… and just about every surf style band. A true innovator.
