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.

JANUARY 21, 2019


      Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day… as I say every year, there was a lot more to him “I Have A Dream,” as he also opposed the war in Vietnam and expanded his agenda to embrace all sorts of injustices and inequality, including economic disparities. It always makes me laugh when Republicans try to say he was a conservative or attempt to appropriate his legacy. Clueless idiots…
