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.

OCTOBER 16, 2017


      This week’s show definitely veers towards the oldies i.e. music from the 1990s and earlier. There was a lot of tumult, both positive and negative, during that early 90s period and, since it’s about the 25th anniversary mark for some of those events, I decided to dig into that time period a bit. Contrary to what some might think, there was plenty of great music that came out of that time frame and I think this show gives a pretty decent sampling… along with the music of more recent vintage, as well.
