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.

APRIL 14, 2014

      Hard to believe it’s been a year since the Boston Marathon bombings, which happened on April 15 last year. Three people lost their lives and over 200 suffered injuries, many of which involved the loss of limbs. There’s going to be wall-to-wall media coverage and, truth be told, I’ve been avoiding it. Not that I’m indifferent or unsympathetic about what happened but I don’t need a media barrage to keep telling me that. I don’t need to wear a Boston Strong t-shirt or put a sticker on my car, much as I didn’t put anything on my car after 9/11, except a peace symbol sticker after the warmongering began. Sorry if this all comes off the wrong way. I’m really not that heartless...

      Before I get myself in too much trouble, here’s this week’s show... oh yeah, Happy Easter and Happy Passover!
