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.

AUGUST 3, 2020


      Welcome to August, one of my favorite months to record the show… as many of you know, some sets are based on mixtapes I made at different times of the year. There are lots of great songs to pick from on the tapes I made in August, over the years… but, as always, it’s not only a nostalgia trip. I continue to seek out new sounds, while filling in the other sets with music from different eras. This isn’t an oldies show, it isn’t only playing the latest but attempting to cover the entire spectrum…
