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 And check out the Facebook page.

SEPTEMBER 15, 2014


      A few technical difficulties this week, although you probably won’t be able to tell the difference. I record the show using two turntables, in addition to CDs and MP3s from my iPod (there’s a dock on the mixer). One of the turntables was humming so I was down to one turntable this week. Hopefully, I can get it fixed soon—probably a faulty ground wire with the cable but we shall see. At least it didn’t create much of an impediment. I do hope you appreciate my hard work!

      OK, I’ll stop now. Enjoy...
