­SONIC OVERLOAD

 

 

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.

FEBRUARY 19, 2018

     

Another week, another school shooting—this one at a high school in Parkland, FL, where 17 people were killed and several more wounded by gunfire from an automatic weapon. I don’t even want to mention the shooter’s name. As usual, there are accusations from the right that people are trying to “politicize” the killings, while offering the requisite “thoughts and prayers.” Offering solutions that involve yet more weapons.

This time around, though, the outcry seems to be louder, especially from students. Maybe this is the last straw. Maybe they’re the ones who can make a difference. As usual, I’m skeptical. As long as the NRA keeps throwing cash at politicians, nothing’s going to happen. Unless people get off their asses and actually vote for candidates who are committed to doing something about the carnage, nothing’s going to happen. It’s going to take more than marching and pontificating on social media…
