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.

      Lots of new records and demos this week, while also digging deeply into the archive for some more obscure older punk and hardcore… I must be doing something right. The listenership this month seems to have gone up a bit. Keep telling your friends, acquaintances and even adversaries…
