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.


I’m proud to announce that there’s now a live version of Sonic Overload every Wednesday from 6-8 PM Eastern time on Stench Radio.


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

      I don’t have a ton of time to tell stories or offer words of wisdom here because it’s been an action-packed day—doing the show, of course, plus watching most of the annual Patriots Day Red Sox game that starts at 11 AM and I’m going out to a show tonight... so I hope you like and hope I didn’t mess anything up because it was, to quote the opening song, a race against time.

      Damn, that’s lame. Enjoy the show!
