Sonic  overload


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.


Recent shows can be downloaded from the archive at And check out the Facebook page.

As I always say, time flies. I open this week’s show with Infest and this past week was the tenth anniversary of the first time I saw them, along with Los Crudos, Hard Skin, The Repos and Fuck You Pay Me, at Chi-Town Futbol, which is a very cool indoor soccer facility. I took that trip with my late great friend Pat Lynch and, when he passed away in November 2021, one of the items I got form his family was a huge, framed poster for that show. It hangs next to my chair in the living room and provides a daily reminder of a fun time and how much I miss Pat. In the meantime, play loud!
