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.


Recent shows can be downloaded from the archive at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

      There’s no way I could completely capture—let’s call it what it is—the terrorist attack on the US Capitol last week, an attempt to subvert democracy. I keep it to about two minutes from various audio sources to give you something of an overview. I used to think the Trump cult wouldn’t ever try anything like this, that it was all talk. I guess I was naïve to have believed that. And I hope they throw the book at every one of those traitorous scumbags, including any law enforcement and elected official who assisted in this attempted coup.

      To quote Bette Davis, fasten your seatbelts… it’s going to be a bumpy ride… both for this week’s show and the weeks, possibly months or even years ahead.
