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.

MAY 22, 2017

      A little over a week has passed since the 35th anniversary of my graduation from Boston University’s School of Management. Yes, I have a business degree, believe it or not. On June 7, my not-so-auspicious post-collegiate career began as a management trainee for the Zayre discount department store chain. To make a very long story short, I left after a mere five months. One thing that did keep me going was a tape I’d blast in my car almost every day after leaving work—it contained Discharge’s “Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing” album and “Why” EP. The perfect length for the ride home. It became a ritual and “Hear Nothing” is an album I’ll probably never tire of hearing. This past weekend was the 35th anniversary of its release. Now THERE’s an anniversary worth celebrating!
