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.

      The attack of the cracking voice—not the most enjoyable way to do the show but hopefully the musical contents make up for it. Thanks to Jason Kooken for organizing the Massachusetts premiere of the DC punk documentary “Salad Days,” which screened at the Stage II Cinema in Amesbury. I enjoyed the film and the theater was really cool—cafe setting with old airplane seats. And no turbulence, except for the shitty ride home in yet another storm. I’d also like to thank Jason including me on the panel for a Q&A session, even though I don’t like to do public speaking all that much. Odd, considering I do this show and sing in a band. Anyway, I’m glad we made the trip...
