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.

AUGUST 31, 2015


      Back to school already… well, not for me but for the students in this area, including all those pesky college students who invade Boston every year. So it’s time for the annual Salute to the Students. Even though people are back in school around here, I say summer ain’t over until Labor Day so I’m going to wring every last minute out of it! Next week’s show will mark Labor Day by featuring a number of songs for the workin’ people.
