­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.

 

All of the shows from January 2009 to the present are archived for download at sonicoverload.blogspot.com. And check out the Facebook page.

JULY 16, 2018

 

      It’s always sad when someone dies young, especially if you wonder if you could have helped or done something to stop it. That’s not to ever lay blame but it’s something that can gnaw at you. I didn’t really know Fran Araya that well but, after reading the tributes to her following her untimely death last week, it’s obvious that there were lots of people who cared about her. Listening to her bands over years (four of which you hear on this week’s show), it’s obvious she was talented.  I’m sure people reached out to her. But no one can measure someone else’s pain or what they’re dealing with. I hope that doesn’t come across as trite but I’m not even sure what else I can say except rest in peace…
