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.

MAY 16, 2022


      In this week’s edition of “fuck, I’m getting old,” today is the 40th anniversary of the day I graduated from Boston University. And later this week marks 40 years since Discharge’s “Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing’s” release. Let’s just say that, during those first post-collegiate months, that album had more impact on me than four years of courses. Not to totally diminish what I learned at BU but that album and many others I heard from that summer on pointed me on the right path.

      Also, it’s not high-def or anything but I’ve boosted the bitrate for the stream up to 192 kbps so it should sound somewhat better…
