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.


Send any music (vinyl or CD) for possible airplay to:

JUNE 29, 2015


      Some good news for a change—gay marriage is FINALLY legal in all 50 states, thanks to a 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court. Of course, the dissenters were predictable—Scalia, Thomas, Roberts and Alito. Scalia’s dissent, in particular, was rather bizarre. A term like “interpretive jiggery-pokery” tends to stand out. Who knows what goes on in the mind of Scalia? I’m not sure I want to know and I’m hoping that the 79 year old Scalia is nearing the end of his tenure on the Court.

      This week’s Stench Radio will feature the annual Salute To America with all your patriotic favorites. That’s Wednesday 6 to 8 PM eastern at www.stenchradio.com
