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.

      Welcome to my favorite show that I do each year, the all-covers Sonic Overload—a lot of new entries this year, as well as some personal favorites. I try to avoid all-covers or tribute albums since they seldom include much in the way of unique takes on songs, although there are a few exceptions here. While some of the songs here could be viewed as semi-carbon copies, that’s not the case for all of them. Hope ‘ya like it…
