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 sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

NOVEMBER 16, 2015


      Here’s your weekly respite from the real world.  No updates on terrorism. No Trump. No Carson. No Cruz. No Fox News. No CNN. Not that I’m forgetting about any of that stuff (although in the case of the GOP candidates, I’d just as soon not think about them), but everyone needs a break. So enjoy the next two hours of noise. Pounding noise, to reference the last song this week.

      Next week, it’s the annual all-covers Sonic Overload and I’ve been compiling a list over the past year of covers I haven’t played in the past.
