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.


Listen to Sonic Overload live every Wednesday from 9 to 11 PM eastern on Old FX Punk 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.

      There’s nothing hip or trendy about the music I play here—or if it is, it’s completely coincidental. I play what I like, without regard to genre, to trendsetter cache, etc. Take or leave it, that’s the way I do the show.

      Two more musicians have left us in the past week, both in their 50s and I’m hoping this will the last tributes I have to do for awhile. R.I.P. John Berry (original Beastie Boys guitarist) and Nick Menza (onetime Megadeth drummer)...
