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.

      Many of you have probably heard that Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bomber, has been sentenced to death. I think that’s a travesty—I think the death penalty is a travesty, period, a barbaric act that no civilized society should use. But what about Tsarnaev and other terrorists’ barbarism? What about his lack of remorse? I don’t think we should lower ourselves to their reprehensible acts. The US remains one of the only industrialized countries that still has capital punishment. There’s proof that innocent people have been executed.

An acquaintance of mine said it wasn’t justice to him, it was pure vengeance. At least this guy admits the source of his bloodlust. I don’t feel that way and, before you say I’d feel differently if it was someone in my family who had been killed, someone in my family was killed by terrorists. Someone I consider family was killed on 9/11. And that never changed my feelings about capital punishment.

There are many things to be ashamed of about this country and capital punishment is one of them...
