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.

      I’m back with a new Monday show after taking a week off. Even though we got back from our trip to Maine  on Monday afternoon, I decided I still needed a week off and I still did the Wednesday Stench show. Not much to add this week. I play a fair amount of new records and demos this week, plus the usual hodgepodge of recent and vintage material.
