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.

      First off, thanks to everyone who donated to help pay for my new turntable, which arrived last week—an Audio-Technica AT-LP-120. It’s a beauty.

      There are times when things/people let you down or make you feel down. Not even anything debilitating, just having stuff on your mind that causes a bit of an emotional sag. Anyway, doing this show provides a respite from all that. Hopefully, it does the same for those of you who need the same thing...
