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 15, 2019


      The world remains a fucked-up place and punk rock’s still my saving grace. Hey, how’s that for a new lyric? OK, perhaps I should stick to DJ-ing and it’s corny as fuck but, with the news continuing to deliver one depressing story after another, I need it more than ever.
